19 Apr 2017
Congratulations to PEN SA Board Member Gabeba Baderoon who was named a joint-winner of the Book: Non-Fiction Monograph category in The Humanities and Social Sciences: Book, Creative and Digital Awards (2017). Baderoon’s book Regarding Muslims: From slavery to post-apartheid won along with Declassified – Moving beyond the dead-end of race in South Africa by Gerhard Maré.
“Second year in their instalment, the Humanities and Social Sciences: Book, Creative and Digital Awards 2017 celebrate outstanding HSS scholars who are stimulating and contributing to serious critical work, while authentically telling South African stories that are shaping our new ways of knowing,” says NIHSS CEO, Prof Sarah Mosoetsa.
“Indeed, much work needs to be done to identify, support and promote new South African voices, authors and stories in the humanities and social sciences (HSS). New partnerships also need to be developed to prioritise books and creative collections that promote African languages.”
