“This book is especially timely and will be very influential in the acknowledgment of the importance of institutional transformation in the context of heritage in postcolonial universities in South Africa, Africa, and globally.”
Dr Mathias Alubafi Fubah

“This book is a significant contribution to Higher Education globally in doing Transformation and doing change in Institutional Culture. It is a powerful reference point and resource for transformation offices/social justice units in South Africa and globally as we continue to engage with the Hard Science of Change. Visual Redress provides insight into the specific choices made by Stellenbosch University in relation to its location and healing institutionally harmed communities. We must learn from this as we continuously engage with our praxis.”
