Introduction / sitemap

This website contains a range of manuscripts, articles, databases, teaching notes etc. mainly dealing with South African history and social science. The content represents a selection of my research during recent years at the Centre of African Studies, University of Copenhagen, at the Nordic Africa Institute in Uppsala, and as independent, externally funded researcher.
The content on these pages reflects my personal approach to a variety of research interests. They reflect a mixture of academic ambitions and personal efforts. The main focus is on South African historiography.
An updated version of Internet Explorer will show these pages best. However, due to my preference for old-fashioned frames and tables, it may be an idea to use the compatibility view. Firefox may display unwanted cell-borders, and Safari could also show some faults. Some browsers may not be able to show all PP-presentations, Flash, or PDF-files. This website is not optimised for tablets or smart-phones.
I hope that these resources will be useful to colleagues, students, and friends.
