It’s not often that a university can lay claim to a humanitarian super star. UCT alumnus and international human rights activist Sean Casey has allowed us to do just that. Casey received the AIDEX Humanitarian Hero of the Year Award late last year for his work in organising complex aid missions, impacting thousands of lives throughout the world.
15 academics from the Faculty of Humanities have received Ad Hominem promotions in 2016. Their achievements were celebrated at a cocktail event held at the University of Cape Town on 19 April. UCT Vice Chancellor Dr. Max Price hosted the cocktail event.
Yohan Chun and Evan Froud are proud winners of the 2016 Fine Music Radio Awards held recently. The annual competition rewards students in the categories Jazz and Classical music. This year, five of the six finalists were South African College of Music students.
It is no wonder that the Centre for Film and Media Studies (CFMS) is a popular destination for students in the Faculty of Humanities. It is a vibrant, creative and challenging space that produces some of the industry’s most recognisable names and faces. In celebration of the department’s 13th anniversary, Humanities News shares some of the more recent successes achieved by current and former students.
