In the last session, the four researchers of the year from different clusters in the faculty were announced. Each was given ten minutes to make presentations on their various topics of research. Miranda Maree, the Faculty of Humanities project coordinator, said, “The significance [of Humanities Day] is to reward people for their research, because the researchers of the year get a financial incentive on their research account, so it is acknowledgement of their hard work but it is also acknowledgement, in total, of the faculty and the work we do in the faculty. It is also an opportunity [for] the faculty [to network together]”.
Humanities Day continued on 4 September, where the faculty collaborated with the visual arts department in their exhibition to showcase all the facets of the faculty in terms of the creative and the research outputs.
