Main Article Content

Rafael Verbuyst


Together with global shifts in the fields of postcolonial studies, anthropology, and history, the democratic transition of 1994 invigorated debates about Khoisan identity, politics, and representation in South Africa and elsewhere. While classical themes continue to inform Khoisan Studies research, the increasing number of people self-identifying as Khoisan and engaging in activism accordingly has brought new debates, topics, and perspectives to the fore. In this selective and annotated bibliography, scholarly works that epitomize this trend are discussed.
