Archie Mafeje was offered a post as anthropology lecturer at UCT. The offer was then rescinded as a result of government pressure. 1968 was a year marked by student protests across the globe. The "Mafeje Affair" was the spark that ignited student anger at UCT, resulting in South Africa's own "1968 moment".
UCT Libraries reflects on Professor Bongani Mayosi's life of purpose through a timeline of celebrated achievements in his academic and research career.
The Library Learning Lounge situated in the Snape Building is closed from 11 June to 31 August 2018. Students are encouraged to use the study spaces in the Chancellor Oppenheimer Library during this time.
The renovation included the creation of an all-important 24/7 study venue within the library. The resultant space, named the Impilo Junction, seats 60 students.
