I removed a post from yesterday (July 18) that dealt with Professor Jonathan Jansen's thinking on Afrikaner youth and their "anger" after two comments prodded me to look deeper.
I have spent much of my day doing exactly that.
I still think that Jansen spends too much academic time focussing on white students and their experiences in this the era after official apartheid.
I also believe that his thinking about the manner that white youth are racialized is somewhat naive and even apologetic to whiteness.
Nontheless, I can't claim to be absolutely informed about what his position(s) on reforming higher education looks like in total. Jansen has published a lot of academic work apart from his press articles.
Unfortunately, in the process of deleting the post in question I also lost the two comments that pressed me to weigh Jansen more carefully.
Nontheless, thank you Anil and Moosa for commenting and providing a kind of blog peer review :)
