From 6 to 25 January, the atrium of UCT’s Kramer Law Building will be filled with eager 2020 Summer School participants discussing the new decade’s array of courses, many of which relate to significant moments in Cape Town’s history and politics.
Some Highlights of UCT’s 2020 Summer School Programme
- Participants will discover the story behind the Ochberg orphans, the South African National Gallery, the former Royal Observatory, the Cape Town drought, and the battle for political power in Cape Town.
- The city’s literary heritage comes to the fore in discussions on the work of J.M. Coetzee offered by Dr Hedley Twidle and Professor David Attwell.
- Emeritus Professor Howard Phillips coordinates a course on the five crises in UCT’s History.
- Dr Antonia Malan and her fellow researchers provide rich material for genealogists in their course on the people and stories of the early Cape. Capetonians wishing to look even further back into their past may learn about the language and treatment of the Khoe people in courses by Dr June Bam and Bradley van Sitters and Wilfred Haacke.
- Emeritus Professor John Parkington explores the concept of time in the context of the archaeology of the Cape, asking ‘Are there rock paintings of events?’
