Khulumani Expresses Sadness at the Passing of Patrick Harries, former Head of African Studies at the University of Basel, Switzerland

We are very sad to read of the passing last week of Patrick Harries in Cape Town at the age of 66 from a heart attack. Harries in his retirement returned from Basel to UCT in 2015 as Emeritus Professor of History. At the time of his death, he was busy developing a large database on liberated Africans. 

The Sunday Times obituary attributes the advancement of the internationalisation of African studies to Harries' role at the University of Basel where it states, he wasted no time "in establishing African history as a serious discipline" and "made it the hub of a network of Africanists".
