Edited by Professor Loren Landau, and Tanya Pampalone, I Want to go Home Forever: Stories of Becoming and Belonging in South Africa’s Great Metropolis is a collection of stories that speaks of intersections between people and their pasts and how, in the making of selves and the other, they are also shaping South Africa.
Edited by Professor Loren Landau, Exorcising the Demons within: Xenophobia, Violence and Statecraft in Contemporary South Africa, this book draws on an interdisciplinary team of expert scholars and on new research. This is the first academic text to fully theorise the events that made global headlines in 2008.
Professor Loren Landau contributed a chapter in the book Go Home or Die Here: Violence, Xenophobia and the Reinvention of Difference in South Africa. The book emanates directly from the colloquium. It hopes to make sense of the nuances and trajectories of building a democratic society out of a deeply divided and conflictual past in the conditions of global recession.
