Feedback form is now closed.
Following the SASUF meeting in 2019, the partnership of academics from universities in Sweden and South Africa pursued the aim to consider challenging violence, a worldwide phenomenon that takes on different forms and occurs at all levels of society, through disrupting norms and practices in higher education. The discussions at a workshop in Cape Town in February 2020 shifted this multidisciplinary team towards a focus drawing on the strengths of the Swedish collaborators in the educational pursuit of norm critical pedagogy and the South African collaborators on social transformation through the goal to decolonise the curriculum and university. In this workshop there will be presentations to look at the dynamics of the partnership including achievements and challenges; consider lessons learnt from STINT collaborations where the focus was on violence, innovative research methods and the need for a decolonised curriculum; and to share experiences of Norm-critique in action. Discussion will be directed towards seeking opportunities for participants to engage with norm conscious teaching and learning as a tool for promoting decolonization and planning towards the implementation of Norm-critique in the curriculum. The workshop will close with a look at options for the future of this partnership as we seek to continue research in social transformation through education interventions and pedagogies.  
Keywords: norm-critique, decolonizing the curriculum, social transformation, disrupting higher education
