CONFERENCE NOTICE AND CALL FOR PAPERS
Hosted and organized by Fort Hare Institute for Social and Economic Research (FHISER), Unit for Economic
Development and Tourism (UFEDT) and School of Economics, Development and Tourism, NMMU
PURPOSE OF CONFERENCE
This conference aims to attract and showcase current and emerging research work on the restructuring of rural and urban regions in the Eastern Cape, the relationships between these regions and centres, and the development policy and planning implications of such work. The key assumption that underpins this endeavour is that the current economic and social situation in the Eastern Cape is unsustainable and requires critical reflection and there is possibly even the need for paradigm shift to allow the province to move forward and meet the challenges that face it.
Inside African Anthropology: Monica Wilson and her Interpreters -Edited by Andrew Bank & Leslie J. Bank
This book offers rare insights into the making of southern African anthropology through an analysis of the life and work of Monica Hunter Wilson, South Africa's most distinguished anthropologist of the 20th century. Drawing on a massive personal archive, this biography of Hunter Wilson's life and work explores her main fieldwork and intellectual projects in southern Africa between the 1920s and the 1960s. The main focus of the book is on her fieldwork projects and the role of her interpreters, associates and collaborators in the production of anthropological knowledge. The book also provides a detailed account of the central role of the University of Fort Hare as a site for anthropological knowledge production in southern Africa in the 1940s. Read More
