Convened by Prof. Sarah Nuttall, Director of WISER (Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research) at Wits University. Nuttall has built and developed a wide-ranging programme in the critical public humanities at WISER over two decades, and has reflected in her recent writing on the university itself, including on ‘the shock of the new old’, ‘the politics of upsurge and turbulence’, and on the what universities ‘will have been for what they are becoming’ as the past, in a psychoanalytic sense, haunts the present as it remakes memory as a conflictual site of transformation and change.

 Please listen to Nuttall’s podcast on the topic prior to the Webinar.
