Making the Road Resource Guides
Since 2016, AfricaFocus has colloborated with
Making the Road (MTR) in preparing on-line background resource guides for the
MTR travel seminars to Southern Africa and to Cuba.
These resource guides were prepared as Google documents for convenient
sharing and feedback from participants in the seminars.
Archives of the resource guides for 2016 and 2017 for Southern Africa are
now available through the links below for wider use. They include material
still relevant for understanding South Africa and its neighbors in 2018.
New guides for 2018 are also being made available over the summer of 2018.
Send any suggestions for additional new resources that are reliable
and accessible to non-specialists, to email@example.com.
The theme for both 2018 seminars is Teaching “Africa” in a Transnational Age:
Countries, Continents, and Global Social Justice.
