Springbok, Farmers, Places and Shards: Reading and Writing the Bleek-Lloyd Archive
This is a narrative essay which reflects on the experience of reading the nineteenthcentury Bleek-Lloyd archive of /Xam testimonies (both in the original collection of exercise books in which they were transcribed and in the online collection which has recently been established) in the light of a preoccupation with the contemporary local-global crisis of environment and development.
