Strength Sports Conference

Stellenbosch University’s Department of Sport Science in partnership with the Stellenbosch University Museum and Sanlam Archives invites you to a South African Sport Historical Conference to be held from 8 to 11 October 2018 on the theme SPORT, STRENGTH AND SOCIETY. The study of physical culture (with an emphasis on health, strength and beauty) remains an obscure area of research in South Africa. It was through cultural and political efforts that Black South Africa had indirect representation at the 1948 Olympic Games in London.

Book announcement: On Durban's Docks: Zulu Workers, Rural Households, Global Labor

I am pleased to announce the publication of my book, titled On Durban's Docks: Zulu Workers, Rural Households, Global Labor (University of Rochester Press, December 2017):

On Durban's Docks focuses on dock labor in early apartheid Durban, South Africa's main port city and a crucial node in the trade and communication networks of the Indian Ocean and the British Empire. Although the labor of Zulu migrant dock workers made global trade possible, they lived their lives largely in isolation, both socially and economically, from these global networks.

But in how far did decolonization across Africa south of the Sahara equally affect the sphere of ecology and relationships between humans and wildlife? Have Africa’s wild animals ever been decolonized?
