Whites Writing Whiteness Letters, Domestic Figurations & Representations of Whiteness in South Africa 1770s-1970s

The ‘Whites Writing Whiteness’ project (ESRC ES J022977/1), based at the University of Edinburgh, is concerned with how social change happens and the best ways for social science research to get to grips with this.
