Introducing our guest speaker: Sicelo Ziphozonke Ntshangase

In 2014 Sicelo Ziphozonke Ntshangase completed his Doctor of Literature and Philosophy degree in the Department of African Languages at the University of South Africa. At that time he was teaching isiZulu First Additional Language at St John’s College, in Houghton, Johannesburg. He is a specialist in isiZulu, with an excellent working knowledge of the new curriculum within the State and IEB context. Before joining St John’s College, he was the Head of IsiZulu at St Mary’s Diocesan School for Girls (Kloof, KwaZulu-Natal) from February 2010 to April 2014.

Prior to that, he was the educator and later the Head of isiZulu at Kloof High School, in KwaZulu-Natal (2002 - 2009). In January 2017 to July 2018, he lectured isiZulu and isiNdebele Methodologies as well as Classroom Literacies at the University of Pretoria, Groenkloof Campus. Currently, he is lecturing isiZulu Education and also IsiZulu Education Discipline Head at the University of KwaZulu-Natal, Edgewood Campus. He has written articles and presented research papers on pedagogy, especially on translanguaging and interactive teaching pedagogy; language acquisition; multilingual education; linguistic rights in education; language planning and language policy; gender and literature; isiZulu oral literature, African religion, philosophy and cosmology.

His area of teaching expertise is oral tradition, communication, poetry, pedagogy, language and literature. He has published three isiZulu books as a sole author: an anthology of poems, a collection of short stories and a novel. His novel addresses the issues of gender and sexual orientation such as patriarchy, sexism, classism and homosexuality which are seldom written about in isiZulu literature. He has also acted as an Editor for publishing companies and has also blind-reviewed several academic articles for different academic journals.

His favourite quotation is:

"Wisdom is not a matter of knowing various facts but rather knowing how much one doesn't know"_Socrates.
