Photographs speak louder than words - 22/07/2014
Rory du Plessis, Visual Cultural Studies lecturer in the University of Pretoria (UP)'s Department of Visual Arts, has just returned from a fellowship at the Max Planck Institute for History of Science (MPIWG) in Berlin. The awarded fellowship forms part of his interdisciplinary doctoral studies and was in the research cluster 'Encounters between Medicine, Literature, Philosophy and their Circulation in Public Debates'.
Damage will rest where it falls if fracking goes ahead, UP professor of law warns - 21/07/2014
Prof Birgit Kuschke is talking about an issue few lawyers in South Africa focus on. Kuschke is one of a handful of legal academics who are working on issues regarding insurance against environmental damage. Having already worked on issues around genetically modified organisms, electromagnetic fields and toxic mould, her attention has now shifted to the legal effects of fracking. While many have voiced concern about the grievous effects fracking has on the environment, such as water damage and the migration of pollution, few have discussed the massive legal and financial ramifications, especially for the insurance industry.
UP Choirs excel at World Choir Games - 21/07/2014
The UP Youth Choir and the UP Camerata Choir participated in the World Choir Games, also known as the ‘Olympics for Choirs’, that was held in Riga, Latvia, from 9 to 14 July. Both choirs performed exceptionally well, bringing back a total of five gold medals between them.
'UP is a good example in the progress for positive change in South Africa' - 18/07/2014
This is according to Emeritus Justice Albie Sachs, who on 14 July launched his latest book, Albie Sachs and the Transformation in South Africa. UP’s Department of Jurisprudence in the Faculty of Law, in collaboration with the uBuntu Project, were hosts to this book launch in the Musaion on the Hatfield Campus. The book has close ties with UP as it was co-written by two of our very own professors, Drucilla Cornell and Karin van Marle.
