Umlando, ukuqamba and stating their own views

A chapter by Carolyn Hamilton set to appear in the forthcoming book Public Intellectuals in South Africa: Critical Voices from the Past, edited by Chris Broodryk.

Hamilton argues that in the face of the extended archive, ethnographic evidence should no longer be relied on for insight into a conceptual “worldview” for Zulu speakers over time.

A version of the piece is also set to be released on EMANDULO as an innovative ‘curated paper’ – one which been formatted to allow for intertextual multimedia.
