This episode features Prof. Mandisa Haarhoff from the University of Cape Town in South Africa. Her work focuses on modern literature in southern Africa, more specifically the farm novel or Plaasroman.
The conversation extracts some of the most important elements of her work, such as how white writers managed to deny the existence of black people in southern Africa or assert their own nativeness on the continent, while treating actual natives as foreigners.
She has numerous articles that can be found on Google Scholar. Her book will be available soon.
