Jacana Conversation: Sol Plaatje’s Mhudi – celebrating the centenary of one of Africa’s earliest novels (19 May)
 More about the book!

As part of its Africa Month celebrations, Jacana Media invite you to a discussion of Sol Plaatje’s Mhudi.

Sabata-mpho Mokae and Brian Willan will talk about the meaning and relevance of Mhudi today, and how the issues of language, gender and land dispossession in this novel provide us with ways of looking at history.

Plaatje scholar Karen Haire will moderate the discussion.

Sabata-mpho Mokae is an academic, translator and writer. He writes mainly in Setswana and occasionally in English. He teaches creative writing at Sol Plaatje University, Kimberley.

A former publisher, Brian Willan is an extraordinary professor at Sol Plaatje University and North West University.
