Toxic Belonging? Identity and Ecology in Southern Africa
In this selection of papers from the 2006 Literature and Ecology Colloquium, held in Grahamstown, South Africa, the complexities of forging imaginative and pragmatic senses of belonging in Southern Africa are explored from a variety of disciplinary perspectives: philosophical, historical, botanical, and anthropological as well as literary. Their subject matter ranges widely - from Bushmen testimonies to Berlin missionaries, from prehistoric cave dwellers to Schopenhauer, from white Batswana to lion-tamers - but find themselves echoing one another in intriguing and illuminating ways. If this collection has a single most prominent question binding it together, it is this: What are the limits and potentialities of human compassion towards the natural world?
