Dear All

 

In continuation of the project we started a years or so ago on the University College for Indians on Salisbury Island, which culminated in a special edition of the Journal for Natal and Zulu History, we are now turning our attention to the possibility of publishing a book on the topic.

 

We envisage a book in two parts. The first part will be academic in nature with the journal articles referred to above, as well as others that would hopefully emanate from this call, constituting the bulk of this section.

 

The second part we envisage to be more in line with stories, memory work and social and personal histories related to Salisbury Island. The need to tell our personal stories in South Africa is compelling. These narratives expose suppressed histories, especially those written out of the official historical records, and could serve as figurative monuments and memorials to celebrate the identity and achievements of societal groups previously marginalized, as it relates to Salisbury Island. These stories could be about student politics; representations in the press; curriculum issues, staff/staffing; sport and recreation; NUSAS and the University of Natal; the apartheid ideology behind the establishment of Unicol; life on the Island; life in the residences; community reaction; student relationships (normality in abnormal circumstances) and so forth. We are happy to accept any topics related to the University College on Salisbury Island that prospective authors wish to write about.

 

In the light of the above we call for academic papers for Part 1 (to be submitted to Johan Wassermann) and storied narratives for Part 2 (to be submitted to Lorraine Singh), as outlined above, to be submitted by 1 September 2015. Papers should preferably not exceed 8 000 words in length and can be illustrated visually.

 

Feel free to contact us should you have any questions or suggestions.

 

Kind regards

 

Dr Loraine Singh and Prof Johan Wassermann (editors)
