Tangible Voice-Throwing: Empowering Corporeal Discourses in African Women’s Writing of Southern Africa
Acknowledgement A big THANK YOU to Prof. Dr. Flora Veit-Wild of Humboldt University in Berlin, who supervised my study; I am grateful for her valuable support and advice; to Prof. Dr. Elmar Schenkel of the University of Leipzig, for co-examining this thesis and whose positive attitude and open-mindedness has made it easier for me to begin with this study; to the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) in Bonn, who funded my three- month study trip to Southern Africa in 2002. I gained first-hand experience and could collect material and background information which otherwise would not have been possible; to Annari van der Merwe of Kwela Books, South Africa, who helped to entangle the literary scenery at the first stage of the project; to all scholars, fellow doctoral students, and friends — too many to name — for enlightening discursive exchanges on the topic; and last, but not least to Susan Stith for unrelentlessly and patiently proofreading the draft versions on the other side of the globe with a hawk-like eye. 11
