We have an ongoing relationship with the University of KwaZulu-Natal, of which we are both alumni. We encourage anyone in the KZN or Durban area to attend this one day event, which based on the programme (downloadable HERE), should prove very interesting.
UKZN Special Collections (Alan Paton Centre and Struggle Archives, Campbell Collections, Gandhi-Luthuli Documentation Centre and Centre for African Literary Studies) invites you to its open day entitled:
More Than A Library: UKZN Special Collections’ Role in Archival & Heritage Preservation and Research.
The UKZN Special Collections Open Day is an invitation to the general public to interact with the archival spaces attached to the University. Presentations will touch briefly on the history and activities of these collections, with Prof John Aitchison, Dr Vukile Khumalo and Aziz Hassim (frequenters, supporters and contributing makers of these collections) offering up pieces of their perspectives as informed by these collections. The day will round off with an opportunity to engage more deeply with each collection; through free interaction with staff members, perusal of displays and a tour of the Campbell Collections.
