OSPCPTWN 15: INDIGENOUS PEOPLES, LAW

This seminar will examine the history of Indigenous peoples and their legal status in some of the settler colonies of the British Empire, including the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, and South Africa. It will consider shared histories of Indigenous dispossession and struggles over land tenure, contests over sovereignty and the meaning of treaties, issues of citizenship and subjecthood, and efforts at the destruction of Indigenous culture through the criminalization of traditional religious practices and the forcible removal of Indigenous children; it will also explore histories of Indigenous resistance to settler policies. The course will conclude with a comparative survey of the law governing Indigenous communities in these settler states today, as well as ongoing struggles for Indigenous rights.

OSPCPTWN 20: Social Dynamics of Health in South Africa: A Medical Anthropological Perspective

This seminar introduces students to the field of anthropology's intersection with Health, Illness and Medical Histories. Drawing on discourses in Body politics, feminist theories of health and medical anthropological approaches to research, this seminar series seeks to question and explore the nature of health realities in South Africa and Africa more broadly. Essentially, it provides an intersectional exploration into how health is comparatively conceptualised using anthropology as the model of analysis. nnThe series is presented discursively and students' lived-experience and critical reflections are welcomed. Topics covered in the course include anthropological configurations of 'the body' (including phenomenology and biopower) as well as the history and geography of medicine (something of a broad sweep of the impact of European medicinal encounters in Africa). The theoretical approach adopted will consider postcolonial theory, development theory, and feminist theories to unpack hea more »

Typical to studies in health and well-being, the seminar series is interdisciplinary in its delivery and students are encouraged to engage critically with a broad range of literature and texts in order to grapple with the content. Thus, there are no prerequisites for doing the course and we welcome students with varying majors.

OSPCPTWN 35: In and Out of the Margins: The Plays of Athol Fugard

This seminarfocuseson the plays of Athol Fugard, the most well-known, influential, and accomplished of South African playwrights. His innovative dramatic style (drawing orignally on improvisation, Brecht, and Greek tragedy,before shifting into realistic situations and dialogue);his apartheid-challenging collaborations with black South African theater artists (especially Zekes Mokei, John Kani, and Winston N'Tshona);and his extraordinarily long career (over the past sevendecades) makehis work of particular interest to students of history, theater, and politics. Through Fugard's plays, students confront signifcant issues in apartheid and post-apartheid South Africa. Set in the confines of the theater, these confrontations paradoxically generate a fuller engagement with the issues than we often get from accounts in the disciplines of history orpolitcal science. As Picasso once said, "Art is the lie that tells the truth," and Fugard's theater tries to do that. In studying his plays, students will learn a different kind of truth about social and historical realities that have faced South Africans over the past six decades.

OSPCPTWN 42: White South-African Writers

I would be thrilled to work with students on an independent study that addressed the work of white South-African writers whose fiction (and in some cases their political activism) challenged the South African apartheid government. I would imagine a directed reading of white South-African novelists ¿Alan Paton, Nadinne Gordimer, and J.M. Coetzee¿whose work (and in some cases whose lives) constituted resistance to apartheid. The many possibilities include Alan Paton's Cry, The Beloved Country(a new film adaptation, starring Mark Rylance and Johnny Depp, is set to be released this year) and Ah, but Your Land is Beautiful; Nadinee Gordimer's The Conservationist, Occasion for Loving, The Burgher's Daughter, Get a Life, and The Pickup(2001); J.M. Coetzee Waiting for the Barbarians,Disgrace, The Life & Times of Michael K, and essays from White Writing. Interested students could undertake reading and discussing works by a single author, or a combination of the titles listed above by different writers.

OSPCPTWN 45: Transitional Justice and Transformation Debates in South Africa

Exploration of transitional justice through critical discussion of contemporary South Africa. Conflicting perspectives of the South African transition through an exploration of the creation of the "rainbow nation" as well as discussions over whether a denial of justice for apartheid-era crimes prevails. Decisions made post-apartheid over how best to confront the large-scale human rights abuses of the past, including South Africa's recent past through the lens of the "pillars" of transitional justice: truth seeking, criminal justice, reparations and institutional reform. Issues of structural violence and the legacies of apartheid in order to question to what extent we can consider South Africa to have realised the promises of its transition

OSPCPTWN 65: Preparation for Senior Capstone Project

The course allows any student to design an independent research or synthesis project that will serve as the basis for some form of senior capstone project. These have included honors theses, senior projects, senior synthesis projects and honors in the arts. This goal will be accomplished through a cumulative, series of assignments. Each student will choose a research topic, narrow it to a specific research question, review the existing literature related to their question, develop a research plan to answer their question, and write a detailed proposal suitable for submission to either the UAR Major or Small Grants competitions.
