The Department of Historical Studies at the Rand Afrikaans University hosts a conference on behalf of the South African Historical Society, on 24-26 June 2002 on:
Heritage creation and research: the restructuring of Historical Studies in Southern Africa.
Historical research is currently conducted on an extensive front in Southern Africa. The call for the African renaissance has prompted new research on oral testimony, heritage and community history. This revival encompasses all societies, cultures and social formations. Researchers in heritage and historical studies have the opportunity at the proposed conference to confer on methodology, narrative explanation and restructuring of this renaissance activity. It is the intention of the Department of Historical Studies to encourage debate, research and interaction amongst scientific practitioners in this field of heritage and historical research at this conference.
This is a call for papers on topics related to the broad conference theme:
Send a 500 word summary together with a proposed title of the paper before 30 October 2001 to:
