University of Botswana Khoe San Conference
10th-12th September 2003
The University of Botswana is planning to host an international Khoe and San
conference on 10th-12th September 2003.
This conference will follow in the steps of the 1991 Bleek and Lloyd: 1870-1991
conference in Cape Town, the 1994 Khoisan Studies: Multidisciplinary
Perspectives conference in Tutzing and the 1997 Khoisan Identities and Cultural
Heritage conference in Cape
The theme for this conference will be Research for Khoe and San Development. As
the title suggests, it will be an academic conference, but with an applied
focus. We envisage that on the morning of each day of the conference there will
be a number of parallel thematic sessions at which researchers can present
papers. In the afternoon there will be a plenary 'policy dialogue' at which the
issues raised in the morning papers will be addressed by a panel of Khoe and
representatives, development practitioners, and government officials.
The topics to be covered in the conference will be:
Leadership and representation
Culture and Art
Natural resources and conservation
Majority - minority relationships
History and archaeology
Gender and human rights
We see this as an opportunity to allow academic work with San to inform
understanding of important issues faced by San, and to encourage academic
agendas to be more closely directed by the priorities and concerns of San
A planning committee, headed by Dr. O. Selolwane, Head of the Sociology Dept.
at UB and by Dr. Michael Taylor has been laying the groundwork. Session leaders
from the international academic community have now volunteered to organise the
contributions for the themes listed. Should you be interested either in
participating, or in attending, or should you wish any further information
