Ministerial Special Project on the Future of the Humanities and Social Sciences Feasibility Study

The Ministerial Special Project on the Future of the Humanities and Social Sciences (MSPFHSS) identified a project on converting Heritage Sites into Centres of Knowledge as one of its catalytic projects.  MISTRA was selected, along with the Universities of Venda and Limpopo, to lead the feasibility study for this project.  The feasibility study sought to identify the conceptual approach, the methodology as well as the processes that should inform a full-scale research on this theme, leading to the policy and programmatic desired intervention.  The Mapungubwe Cultural Landscape and Richterveld Cultural and Botanical Landscape were chosen as the case studies for this project.
