Was it something I wore?
Was it something I wore?
Dress • Identity • Materiality
Relebohile Moletsane, Claudia Mitchell, Ann Smith

People often wear their causes on their t-shirts, in their choice of traditional attire or other garments, or by way of specific costumes, pieces of jewellery or particular accessories. In Was it something I wore? Dress; identity; materiality, the contributors explore the construction and performance of personal and social identities. The essays point to the significance of dress as material culture in social science research not only in their content but also in their focus on a variety of methodologies including memory work, visual studies, autoethnography, object biographies and other forms of textual analysis.

Waves of Change
Waves of Change
Globalisation and seafaring labour markets
Shaun Ruggunan
Over 90 per cent of the goods we use – from our smartphones to the fuel in our cars – are transported by ships. The cargo shipping industry is the most globalised industry in the world, yet we know very little about the context in which these ships operate or the ways in which seafaring labour is organised. Drawing on evidence from South Africa and the Philippines, Waves of Change provides an account of globalisation, seafaring labour markets and the state that allows us to understand how processes of globalisation unfold in this industry. The author shows that globalisation does not always mean a 'race to the bottom' for workers: labour solidarity and interventionist states shape globalisation as much as ship owners do. Scholars, policy makers, students and those with a general interest in globalisation and labour will find Waves of Change a revelatory account of an industry about which little is generally known.

Wetenskapbeelde in die Geesteswetenskappe verskaf antwoorde op hierdie vrae. Elkeen van hierdie wetenskapbeelde word geskets binne die raamwerk van 'n debat oor sy winspunte en sy beperkings.

Women's Property Rights, HIV and AIDS & Domestic Violence
Women's Property Rights, HIV and AIDS & Domestic Violence
Research Findings from Two Districts in South Africa and Uganda
Hema Swaminathan, Cherryl Walker, Margaret A. Rugadya (eds)

Women's property and inheritance rights are recognised in international law and in a growing number of countries worldwide, yet women in many developing countries do not have the right to own or inherit property. At the same time, women are increasingly heading up households and are in critical need of land and property for economic security, particularly in the context of the AIDS epidemic - in fact, secure property rights are believed to be a factor in reducing women's risk of contracting HIV and in protecting them from domestic violence.
