However, in post-Apartheid times the department, under the leadership of Professors Bodley van der Westhuizen and A.T. Moller, became committed to transforming itself and to rid itself of its Verwoerdian roots. Appointments were made not only to change the demographics of the faculty, but also to develop a department that was intellectually more diverse and more progressive. There was a special effort to appoint people from previously disadvantaged groups. New appointees brought with them different intellectual paradigms and the department became a much more vibrant intellectual space where the biomedical model was exposed to various critiques: a community psychology critique, a feminist critique, a cross-cultural critique, a psychoanalytic critique. a postmodern and postcolonial critique, and so forth. These dramatic changes coincided, perhaps coincidentally, with a much dreaded move across campus to the Wilcocks building, the department now once again geographically closer to other humanities and social sciences departments. Ironically however, the name of this building which houses the Department, still links the Department to it’s conservative roots.
