The History Workshop

"The History Workshop was a hugely important underlay for much non-fiction in South Africa. It’s important to think of the politics; the form of Marxism that underpinned the Workshop at the time was committed to being written in an accessible style. One of the critiques of the Workshop was that, in committing to this theoretical common sense, they didn’t look at the ‘irrational’ or occult realms of experience. Santu manages to do the work of the social documentarian but also enter these domains, the sites of worship, for instance, extending into realms the History Workshop wasn’t able to enter."
