On the edges: Autodidacts, forgotten thinkers, silenced women in twentieth-century South Africa

Although South African historiography has been dominated by university-based intellectuals, many intellectuals operated outside universities, only to be marginalized and hidden from history. This conference places those marginalized intellectuals centre stage, exploring their hitherto neglected work in all its originality and variety. Intellectuals active outside universities ranged from socialist autodidacts to participants in workers’ night schools and radical discussion groups to women sitting silently at political conferences to political activists and trade unionists. Often organic...

LARC Lunchtime Seminar: Professor Karl Von Holdt

The prevailing public narrative about corruption tends to present it as a matter of moral failure on the part of a number of individuals (and perhaps an organisation) and legal failure on the part of state institutions. The presentation will attempt to reframe 'corruption' as an important element in processes of class formation in post-apartheid South Africa, and 'looting' as a form of primitive accumulation on the part of a nascent elite. These practices are embedded in moral orders through which they are rendered legitimate and justified in the South African context.

Anchoring Factor Investment Portfolios to Defined Benchmarks – a Global Analysis

Presented by Nico Katzke, Prescient
“Factor investment-, or Smart Beta portfolios have, for all its academic appeal, produced varied results when applied outside of academic studies. While its promise is clear, with back-tests able to back-up its intuitive and academic appeal, these portfolios have often been subject to high tracking-errors, deep drawdowns (cue 2008) and high portfolio turnover levels. In this talk I discuss the research I am pursuing for my Phd, introducing a means of anchoring factor investment portfolios to a defined benchmark, while preserving the integrity of...

Helminths: New Insights from Immunity to Global Health

Among the diverse pathogen species known to cause morbidity and mortality in humans, parasitic helminths are by far the most prevalent but least understood. The current estimates of more than one billion people worldwide who are infected with one or more helminth (worm) species is clear evidence that basic and applied research focused on these pathogens is urgently needed for global human health. Moreover, basic science studies using helminth-based experimental systems have led to remarkable discoveries of new cell lineages and novel molecular and cellular pathways. It is clear that a...
