Five university publishers in South Africa are sharing a joint stand at the London Book Fair - Wits University, UKZN, UNISA, UCT and HSRC Presses. The Book Fair has a special focus on South Africa this year, and the publishers, as well as the British Council, have invited authors to give talks at a series of seminars in Oxford and London.
South Africa in the World aims to promote research and academic publication in South Africa to a wider audience. We plan to explore how knowledge produced in the global South circulates and intersects with research conducted in the North. Since the aim is to provide a platform for dialogue, speakers from UK institutions with an interest in African Studies will chair and join the panels. Books will be on sale throughout the day.
