Researching Social Change and ‘whiteness’ in South Africa 1770s-1970s

Please reference as: Liz Stanley (2013) ‘Researching social change and whiteness in South Africa 1770s to 1970s’ Whites Writing Whiteness and provide the paragraph number as appropriate when quoting.

A short podcast on ‘Researching social change and whiteness in South Africa 1770s to 1970s: Methodological beginnings for the Whites Writing Whiteness project’ is now available. It provides an illustrated overview of two connected pieces of work we’ve recently carried out, concerning two very different methodological means of analysing the letters-data that the WWW research is concerned with.

Download the podcast here (5.3 mb, PowerPoint presentation file with audio). To view, press the ‘Slide Show’ tab and select ‘From Beginning’. Please note that the podcast will not run on iPads at the moment; apologies for this.


We’d be pleased to hear any comments you may have, both about the helpfulness or otherwise of us providing more podcasts, and also regarding about the two connected ‘experiments’ we’ve carried out.
