Professor Peter Kallaway is an emeritus professor in the School of Education at the University of Cape Town.

Professor Kallaway’s passion has always been understanding the history and legacy of education in South Africa. His studies have included the interactions between missionary educators, philanthropists and colonial governments in the development of South African educational policy in the inter-war years, vocational and teacher education, and since 1994 the role of globalisation on SA educational policy.

Since the 1970s, Professor Kallaway has been associated with a group of researchers who have engaged with those aspects of South African educational history that are not focused on the roles of flagship mission schools or the legacy of particular colonial administrators. This engagement led to the publication of several books, such as Apartheid and Education: The Education of Black South Africans (Johannesburg: Ravan Press, 1984); Education after Apartheid: South African Education in Transition (Cape Town: UCT Press/Juta: 1997); The History of Education under Apartheid 1948-1994 (New York/Cape Town: Peter Lang/Pearson, (2002) and Empire and Education in Africa (New York: Peter Lang, 2016).

Professor Kallaway’s belief that making this bibliography available to the world would enable further scholarship in this under-represented area of South African educational research, was the major driver behind the project.
