Llewellin Jegels

Current Fellows: English Department, MA

Llewellin’s Masters is focused on cultural/music biography and legacy-making in post-apartheid South Africa using Zayn Adam, an iconic music star of the Western Cape in the 70s and 80s, as the lens through which he addresses the pop/fusion music history of that era and the manner in which artists, performing under the constraints imposed by apartheid, had to develop a fluidity to their music in order to remain relevant and viable as artists. His research area thus touches on music history and cultural heritage on a broader scale and is a literary contribution to an area where many artists, more specifically artists from Cape Town, remain unheralded in any written form.

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.
