The Humanities in Session

During these strange and troubling times of planetary pandemic, lock down and physical isolation, the Centre for Humanities Research is convening a series of short performances online in "The Humanities in Session" series. As time passes, we hope to reflect on what it means for the Humanities to be "in session" in such times.

The CHR in the time of a global pandemic

In line with protocols introduced by government towards the prevention and containment of the COVID-19 virus, the CHR suspended its public events, seminars, and general fellowship program until further notice.  We wish CHR fellows, students, artists, colleagues and friends, as well as our partners and funders in South Africa and across the world much strength and compassion in these difficult times.
