CAS says farewell to leading and long time African Studies scholar Prof Nick Shepherd.

Professor Nick Shepherd departed CAS in July 2017 for a new career in higher education in Copenhagen. Shepherd spent many years contributing to cutting edge research and scholarship in contemporary theories on critical issues in heritage, the archive and public culture at UCT.

Shepherd, a leading African archaeologist, is former head of African Studies and devoted much of his innovative pedagogy to curriculum and institutional transformation.
