n Africa Insight - Dismantling racial and hegemonic boundaries for an inclusive higher education

Volume 40, Issue 4
  • ISSN : 0256-2804


The main focus of the article is to provide an analysis of subtle and implicit racial divisions in higher education institutions that lead to unbalanced power relations. These subtle inequalities emanate from expressed experiences of hostile institutional cultures, untransformed curricula that are largely based on European traditions and norms and a general atmosphere that is tilted towards white supremacy. The article also gives specific attention to the formation of a unifying organisational culture, requisite for dismantling cultural, identity and hegemonic boundaries that are residues of the previously racialised South African higher education system of the apartheid era.
