Call for papers:

New perspectives on the experiences and suffering of women and children during the Anglo-Boer (South African) War, 1899-1902

International Conference, 16-18 September 2020

At the War Museum of the Boer Republics in
Bloemfontein, South Africa

This year marks the 120-year Commemoration of the implementation of the Scorched Earth Policy and British Concentration Camp system in September 1900 during Anglo-Boer (South African) War. In recent years the study and interpretation of the war have created new insights of the complexities that this particular conflict had on the South African population. In accordance with the War Museum’s vision the conference will represent the inclusivity and suffering of all communities, thus also propagating the message that negotiation is preferable to war. Although the emphasis will inherently be on historical interpretations of the war the conference aims at including a multi-disciplinary approach. The 2020 conference aims to assemble historians and other scholars researching the diverse dimensions of the Anglo-Boer (South African) War. Not only are established and emerging scholars encouraged to attend but also so-called amateur historians. As such participants and conference attendants do not necessarily have to be affiliated with a specific institution or organisation.
