The University of the Free State hosted Profs Jane Kenway of Monash University in Australia and Debbie Epstein from Cardiff University in the United Kingdom. The two scholars presented an interdisciplinary seminar discussing patterns emerging from their five-year international research project on ethnographies of elite schools, global forces and curricula. The research was based on school sites in nine countries, including South Africa. The seminar was organised by Prof. Melanie Walker, Professor of Higher Education and Human Development, and was jointly hosted by the Faculty of Education.
