Abstract:At the end of 2005, Martin Legassick retired from the University of the Western Cape (UWC), South Africa, where he was a professor of history. On 23 November 2005, at the Centre for Humanities Research, the Department of History hosted a celebration of his career as historian and scholar-activist. At this occasion, Gary Minkley of the University of Fort Hare (and formerly of UWC) and Noor Nieftagodien of the University of the Witwatersrand spoke about their respective engagements with Legassick's ideas and practice as historian and activist, and about the significance and impact of his work. This feature section of the 'South African Historical Journal' publishes these addresses as well as some remarks by one of Legassick's students, Thozama April, and some reflections by Bill Freund of his time spent with Legassick at the University of Warwick. These are accompanied by an inverview with Legassick conducted by his UWC colleague, Ciraj Rassool. Notes, ref. [ASC Leiden abstract]
