Rumours, Prostitutes, Historians: Researching and Writing Cultural History – A Workshop with Luise White

Thursday 25th June 2009 Archives Teaching Room
School of History
9 Abercromby Square


11:00 “How I went from prostitutes to vampires to the politics of white rule and why I’m still slightly baffled by it”

12:30 Lunch

13:30 Oral history, oral historiography, and the study of rumour and gossip.

This is a free event; for the catering it would be helpful if you could let us know if you plan to attend. Also, it would be useful if, in preparation for the workshop you could read: Chapter 2 ‘Historicising rumor and gossip’ from Luise White, Speaking with Vampires and/or: Luise White, ‘The traffic in heads: bodies, borders and the articulation of regional histories’, Journal of Southern African Studies 23.2 (1997), 325-38
