The Academic Citizen is an independent podcast series produced and funded by the South African Research Chair in Science Communication in 2022. The aims of the podcast are to:
- Create a space for wide and deep discussion about key issues animating higher education in South Africa, Africa, the global south and beyond.
- Create a space for interdisciplinary exchange for academic researchers and educators.
- Help researchers, educators and scientists to tell their stories, and listen to and learn from each other’s insights and experiences.
- Create a space for science (in all forms) to be communicated in order to serve social justice (broadly conceived).
