College of Human Sciences

Applying an African lens to social and religious injustices of the past

The year 2016 saw the College of Human Sciences continue to increase its National Research Foundation (NRF) rated researchers, with 10 being added to the total number of 51 rated scholars.

One of these professors is Chris de Wet from the Department of Biblical and Ancient studies. He speaks here on his research on slavery and the early church and the lessons to be learnt, as well as the importance of applying an African lens to subjects previously only looked at from one perspective.

Q: How do you feel about your NRF rating?
