These are trying times for Higher Education. The student activism of the past year has alerted us to the many relics of our colonial past (and neo-liberal present) that need to fall: outdated curricula, deficit understandings of student learning and techno-rational notions of how higher education practices change. At a time when resources are crucial, the aftermath of #FeesMustFall has resulted in a time of austerity for South African universities, making teaching and learning in Higher Education ever more complex and ever more 'entangled' in what Hannon calls its 'social and material arrangements'. To think through these new complexities we need new ideas and theories - and this is precisely what this edition of Critical Studies in Teaching and Learning offers.
