Abstract:On 24-26 May 2004, the Nordic Africa Institute in Uppsala organized an international conference entitled 'Looking to the future: social, political and cultural space in Zimbabwe'. This volume contains three of the papers presented at the conference. In the first paper, The uses and abuses of history in Zimbabwe, Terence Ranger expresses his concerns about the creation and propagation of 'patriotic history' in Zimbabwe. In his paper, To skin a skunk: some observations on Zimbabwe's intellectual development, Stanley Nyamfukudza discusses the misguided policy of avoiding discussing problems openly - described with the Shona saying 'to skin a skunk'. The third paper, Zimbabwe's global citizens in 'Harare North': some preliminary observations, by Beacon Mbiba, deals with Zimbabwean immigrants in the UK. [ASC Leiden abstract]
