Walters, Shirley – South African Journal of Education, 2018
This paper considers the importance of 'in-between spaces' within the academy for challenging dominant institutional culture and hegemonic power relations towards a 'de-colonised' university.

Konik, I.; Konik, A. – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
This article explores the possibility that the recent #RhodesMustFall and #FeesMustFall student protests at South African universities may be partially underpinned by grief over a dying essentialist assemblage in the wake of the 2012 Marikana massacre--which saw the assemblage severed from the State Apparatus in a way that spelled its doom.…

While all these topics covered by labour scholars are of great importance, there is less emphasis…

Blyth, Carmen; Meiring, Rouxnette – Teacher Development, 2018
As we enter the sixth great mass extinction event, an event that points to humanity's exploitative attitude towards nature, posthumanist ethics offers a different way of engaging with the world, a way which has clear and extensive implications for the way environmental education is taught in South African schools.
