This edition of CRiSTAL comes out at a time of enormous upheaval in higher education in South Africa, with many November exams postponed or cancelled amid scenes of riot police, security officials and violence and destruction on most of our campuses. Against this backdrop there is an urgent need to re-examine our practices not only in the way students are treated by management but also in approaches to teaching and curriculum. In the light of this, the articles in this edition offer timely suggestions for more equitable, social justice practices in higher education which may help us to re-imagine the future of higher education; there will be no more 'business as usual', but many of us need help in thinking about what will take the place of business as usual, and what we can do to ensure urgently needed change. Furthermore, the articles expose readers to innovative ways of thinking about higher education.
