This article argues that the Humanities in South Africa are under threat, from various quarters, both structurally in higher educational institutions, and conceptually in the corporatization of present-day ways of thinking. It suggests some of the ways in which the structural issues may be dealt with by Higher Education Authorities, and uses Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University (NMMU) as a specific example of some of the problems and challenges facing the Higher Education sector in general, but the Humanities in particular.
