We are creating giants | Sikhulisa iinganga | Ons skep reuse
Have you, like so many of us, gotten used to the fact that English is the default language of academia? Do you have knowledge of another language, perhaps even more knowledge and fluency in that language than English? Even if you consider yourself monolingual, can you imagine what it’s like to forge creative and convincing arguments in a language you are not most comfortable in?
With these questions in mind the Language Working Group (LWG) has launched a campaign that celebrates the academic achievements of CPUT graduates and postgraduates in spite of or because of multilingualism.
Featured in this blog and on CPUT’s official YouTube channel are the experiences and research foci of graduate and postgraduate students from each of our faculties. Read more about these giants here. And click here for their videos.
