Professor Emeritus Jeff Hearn has been appointed as Professor Extraordinarius for 3 years at the Institute for Social and Health Studies, University of South Africa (UNISA).

UNISA specializes on open and distance learning, and has over 350, 000 enrolled students. Professor Hearn has been collaborating with South African researchers for over twenty years. He has been involved in many collaboration projects, including the Academy of Finland/NRF project ’Enabling South African and Finnish youth towards non-violence, equality and social well-being”. The project ran from 2013 to 2016, based in Finland at Hanken, and has led to many publications, including an edited book, Engaging Youth in Activist Research and Pedagogical Praxis: Transnational Perspectives on Gender, Sex, and Race, with Routledge to be published this year.

Last November Professor Hearn was an invited keynote for the annual UNISA Doctoral Summer School that brought together researchers on gender in the ex-colonies, physics, sustainability, violence, and water, from all over South Africa and beyond.
