Lunch Talk: “’Future Pasts.’ Introducing a historical cultural mapping project in western Namibia”

November 23, 2017 @ 12:15 - 14:00

Lunch Talk with Welhemina Suro Ganuses and Sian Sullivan (Palmwag (Namibia) & Bath (UK)).

The “Future Pasts” project on sustainabilities and cultural landscapes in western Namibia draws on arts and humanities research methodologies to document and analyse culturally-inflected perceptions and practices of sustainability. In this talk Sian Sullivan (professor of environment and culture, Bath Spa University) and her Namibian collaborator Welhemina Suro Ganuses (Save the Rhino Trust, Palmwag) introduce the innovative project. The focus of the talk will be on the relevance of Khoekhoegowab oral traditions and working with people returning to places in the broader Sesfontein/Purros/Palmwag environment.
