Bio/Research

My research interests include the intersections of gender, race/ethnic and class inequalities, human rights, and indigenous peoples’ issues in southern Africa. I have conducted fieldwork in the Omaheke Region of eastern Namibia among the San (Bushmen) who live and work on white-owned farms since 1996. My current research examines human rights issues and concepts of social justice from the perspective of indigenous minorities in southern Africa. I focus in particular on the perspectives of the San on the changing nature of harms and injustice from apartheid to post-apartheid contexts.
