This exhibition is the result of collaboration between several schools and museums in Germany and Canada, with both public and private sector support. The thematic components contained in the exhibition were chosen by the participating organizations and are by no means intended to provide a comprehensive overview of the area of migration between Germany and Canada. Instead we hope that through highlighting selected aspects on the theme of German migration to Canada, visitors will be encouraged to discover and further explore the spirit of community which has resulted through the shared history between these two nations.
- Southern African Studies Centre (SASC): The SASC was started in 1985 as a sub-division of the English Department. Its founders were inspired by the need to pay attention to what had been and is indeed still happening on the outskirts, or rather at the burgeoning new centres of the English speaking world, as well as by a keen theoretical interest in the ways literature is involved in transcoding multilingual and multicultural contexts. In this respect South Africa has been an ideal testing ground.
- Since its foundation the SASC has developed strong links with a number of South African universities and, with its partners, embarked on several ambitious research projects, including the writing of a literary history of South Africa and, as part of the larger project, a history of the South African novel. The Centre offers classes on (South) African literatures in English on a regular basis, and it provides a venue for research through its excellent Africana collection in the university library, through publications in the series "African Literatures in English" and international symposia.
- The Teacher - Daily Mail & Guardian: South Africa's National Newspaper for Teachers. The Teacher, South Africa's leading monthly newspaper for educators, captures education "live". It brings you the latest news, keeps you up to date on policy developments and brings you useful ideas for the classroom. The Teacher also publishes regular resource pull-outs, with posters to paste on the classroom wall, to assist you with outcomes-based education.
