Applications are open for the ACU Summer School 2023: Truth and reconciliation. The ACU Summer School is aimed at students studying a subject that explores themes related to truth and reconciliation and/or with a personal interest in truth and reconciliation.
This is a fascinating opportunity for you to learn about the political, social and economic forces that shaped 20th Century South African politics, including apartheid, with your peers from around the Commonwealth. Hosted by Stellenbosch University, this is the first time the programme will take place in a winter climate.
Explore South Africa’s ongoing journey to reconciliation together in lectures, discussions and group project work over the course of a week. Hear from academic experts who will bring the country’s complex history to life and help you to shape your own perspective. Take a field-trip to Robben Island prison, where Nelson Mandela and other anti-apartheid campaigners were jailed. Make new friends from countries across the Commonwealth while exploring historically significant events in an open, welcoming, intercultural environment.
If you are inspired by imagining what a more equitable future looks like for all, and want to take action in your community, then this is the event for you!
