ARNHE


The Anti-Racism Network in Higher Education (ARNHE) is an organic structure that began operating in June 2008 in response to the events that happened at the Reitz Residence as well as the overall challenges of racism in Higher Education institutions in South Africa. ARNHE facilitates the coordination of events to provide a space for sustained critical dialogue amongst academics, higher education administrators, students and staff, on the impact of racism and the intersections between race and other social asymmetries such as gender, xenophobia, class, and differentiated ability within the higher education sector.

ARNHE co-hosts two colloquia per year and so far it has co-hosted colloquia with nine higher education institutions in South Africa.  The prospect is to include all institutions of higher education in the country.

ARNHE is currently being hosted by the Institute for Reconciliation and Social Justice at the University of the Free State.

The Executive Committee of ARNHE is constituted as follows: Chair: Melissa Steyn (WITS), Xoliswa Mtose (UNIZULU), Allan Zinn (NMMU), JC van der Merwe (UFS), Ronelle Carolissen (SU) and Tammy Shefer (UWC).

For more information on ARNHE initiatives contact JC van der Merwe (vdmjc@ufs.ac.za) or visit the website: www.arnhe.co.za.
