SAYAS Survey on Identities

The South African Young Academy of Science and the Wits Centre for Diversity Studies are undertaking a survey titled: ‘Hidden Identities in South African Academia: Contestations and Contradictions for Belonging’. The study aims to establish the role of identity as a barrier in academia, and to determine strategies to promote inclusivity in academia within the South African context.

Transformation within South African universities is hampered by more than just historical practices, but by many factors currently at play, either hindering or helping individuals’ progress on the academic career path. For many young academics, making sense of their professional functions and roles within the ever-changing environment of academia is largely shaped by the concept of identity construction.

An initial online survey was conducted after which Dialogues will be held in early 2020 at four universities in the country. The study partners will use the data obtained from this research to develop policy recommendations that highlight the ways in which young academics / early career researchers can be better supported in their careers.
