#EqHist2019 Speakers List

EHC 2019 is five months away!
Nov. 13-15

Keynote by Sandra Swart

     Sandra Swart, Professor of History at Stellenbosch University, presents a model for theswart broad research engagement that equine historians can generate. Her publications have focused on the socio-environmental history of southern Africa with a focus on the shifting relationship between humans and animals (Riding High – horses, humans and history in South Africa (Witwatersrand University Press, 2010); co-edited (with L. Van Sittert) Canis Africanis – a dog history of Southern Africa (Brill, 2008); co-authored with Greg Bankoff, Breeds of Empire: The ‘invention’ of the horse in the Philippines and Southern Africa, 1500-1950(Nordic Institute of Asian Studies Press 2007).  Sandra’s multi-disciplinary background, with a DPhil in Modern History and an MSc in Environmental Change and Management, demonstrates the potential of new research at the intersection of animal and environmental concerns.  She has produced a multitude of works engaging with the social history of environmental boundaries and conservation. Many of our equine researchers rely on her work not only for content and context, but also for theory and methodology. She has been instrumental in developing frameworks for approaching indigenous and colonial relationships to the natural environment throughout the world.
