San studies and resources

HOORC Library digtitization team member Olebogeng Suwe with Mr Cgara Leneke of Bere

HOORC's Library had a visit this week from Dr Junko Maruyama of Kyoto University's Graduate School of Asian and African Area Studies. Dr Maruyama is working on livelihoods and social relationships among the San people of the Central Kalahari. You can find her 2003 study, The Impacts of Resettlement on Livelihood and Social Relationships Among the Central Kalahari San online. Dr Maruyama's visit coincides with the BIOKAVANGO Project's first community internship, the visit of Mr Cgara Leneke of Bere in the Central Kalahari. Mr Leneke is assisting with digitization of colour slides of traditional San bushman life from the HOORC Library collection of the late Dr Hans Joachim Heinz.
