Posted on July 19, 2012


Unisa Department of Anthropology & Archaeology Invites you to a talk by Lourenço Casamiro Pinto

Date: 25 July 2012 Time: 11h00-12h00
Venue: Anthropology & Archaeology Museum*, Theo van Wijk Bdg, Unisa

‘Encountering Third Spaces of Enunciation:
A site-specific approach to rock art and interaction in the south Eastern Cape Province, South Africa. The case of Xoro gwai rock shelter’

Studies of San rock art in southern Africa have appealed to researchers for specificities of individual rock art sites in order to counter the prevailing practice of conceptualising San rock art as a homogenous entity. This research attempts to analyse social interaction through looking at diverse ethnographies and how such ethnographies can reveal information regarding one rock art site. Individual rock art sites like Xoro gwai can start to unravel the nuanced, diverse and complex nature of San religious beliefs and rites and how these beliefs were affected or influenced by social contact with other social formations.

Tea and coffee will be served after the talk in TvW 4-150.
