Abstract:The title of the special issue on 'San representation', published in two parts, is deliberately ambiguous. It captures both the representation of the San in various media, including academic publications, popular culture, literature, film and advertising, and also representation of various sorts by people who have been identified as San in the past, or who themselves claim such an identity today. This first part contains the following articles: San representation: an overview of the field (Michael Wessels); To exhibit or be exhibited: the visual art of Vetkat Regopstaan Boesman Kruiper (Nyasha Mboti); Simulacral; genealogical; auratic and representational failure: Bushman authenticity as methodological collapse (William Ellis); Development narratives: the value of multiple voices and ontologies in Kalahari research (Lauren Dyll-Myklebust); The music of dead sisters: a feminist comparison of two folktales about singing bones and reeds (Cheryl Stobie); The creation of the eland: a close reading of a Drakensberg San narrative (Michael Wessels); The damaging effects of romantic mythopoeia on Khoesan linguistics (Menán du Plessis).
