crossposted from H-SAfrica <email@example.com> From: Mary-Lynn Suttie, University of South Africa <SUTTIM@ALPHA.UNISA.AC.ZA> CALL FOR PAPERS Rethinking the South African War 1899-1902 Pretoria, South Africa 3 - 5 August 1998 The Library of the University of South Africa is organising an international conference on new perspectives on the South African War. We invite proposals of papers that offer new insights into the social and cultural history of the war, especially those which focus on gender and the war (including the making of masculinity), imperialism and the war, blacks and the war, identities and the war, struggles over land during the war, environmental aspects of the war, medical histories of the war, literature and the war, religion and the war, sport and the war, anti-war sentiment during the war, representations of the war, nationalisms and the war, international perspectives on the war, and militarism and the war. We welcome papers that look at how the South African War has shaped popular consciousness, identities, South African historiography, cultural iconography and the social landscape, to the present. We also intend setting up a panel discussion on museums and archives which will look specifically at the changing material, documentary, literary and visual representations of the South African War both in South Africa and abroad. Papers that discuss film or photography will be most welcome, as well as those on the press during the war. Perspectives which look back at the South African War from the vantage point of modern South Africa would also help to connect the war with our own time. Please send your abstract of approximately 300 words by 1 December 1997 to: Ms Mary-Lynn Suttie Unisa Library PO Box 392 Pretoria 0003 South Africa Fax: 012 429 2925 E-Mail: <firstname.lastname@example.org>
