Wits University Press will host the launch of this book edited by Sumaya Laher, Angelo Fynn and Sherianne Kramer.

Can research methods be transformed and transformative? Researchers answering this question engage in a complex context in South Africa. The book confronts the reality of methodologically poor and conceptually flawed research with case studies that provide guidance to researchers to develop transformative research. Join Sumaya Laher (co-editor of the book and Professor at Wits Psychology department) with guest speakers, Professor Garth Stevens (Dean, Humanities at Wits and president elect of the Psychological Society of South Africa); chapter author, Peace Kiguwa (Associate Professor in the Wits Psychology Department) and chapter author, Professor Brendon Barnes (Head of Department, UJ Psychology Department). The book launch is part of the Unsettling Paradigms Conference programme (Plenary 2) taking place at the University of Pretoria and will be followed by a cocktail event and a play by Mike van Graan.
