Pioneers of the field : South Africa's women anthropologists
Bank, Andrew, author
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2016
Introduction: Rethinking the canon -- Feminizing the foundational narrative: the collaborative anthropology of Winifred Tucker Hoernle (1885-1960) -- An adopted daughter: Christianity and anthropology in the life and work of Monica Hunter Wilson (1908-1982) -- Anthropology and Jewish identity: The urban fieldwork and ethnographies of Ellen Hellmann (1908-1982) -- 'A genius for friendship': Audrey Richards at Wits, 1938-1940 -- Historical ethnography and ethnographic fiction: The South African writings of Hilda Beemer Kuper (1911-1992) -- Feminising the discipline: the long career of Eileen Jensen Krige (1904-1995) -- Conclusion: A humanist legacy.

Focusing on the crucial contributions of women researchers, Andrew Bank demonstrates that the modern school of social anthropology in South Africa was uniquely female-dominated. The book traces the personal and intellectual histories of six remarkable women through the use of a rich cocktail of new archival sources, including family photographs, private and professional correspondence, field-notes and field diaries, published and other public writings and even love letters. The book also sheds new light on the close connections between their personal lives, their academic work and their anti-segregationist and anti-apartheid politics. It will be welcomed by anthropologists, historians and students in African studies interested in the development of social anthropology in twentieth-century Africa, as well as by students and researchers in the field of gender studies.

Yiwarra kuju : the Canning Stock Route
National Museum of Australia
Canberra : National Museum of Australia Press, 2010
The Aboriginal people of Australias Western Desert lived in their homelands for thousands of years. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the expansion of the Western Australian mining and pastoral industries led to the surveying of a track along which cattle could be driven from Kimberley stations to markets in the south.
