    BOJE, John  e  PRETORIUS, Fransjohan. Kent gij dat volk: the Anglo-Boer War and Afrikaner identity in postmodern perspective. Historia [online]. 2011, vol.56, n.2, pp. 59-72. ISSN 0018-229X.

    ABSTRACT This article, based on a thesis on the Anglo-Boer War as it was experienced by the people of the Winburg district, demonstrates how postmodern insights, which have excited much discomfort among practising historians, can contribute to an understanding of the Anglo-Boer War that is relevant to Afrikaner identity in a democratic, pluralistic South Africa. The traditional Afrikaner nationalist paradigm is invalidated by an anti-totalising approach and its ideological use of history for the exercise of power is unmasked. On the other hand, deconstruction brings to light aspects of the past that may usefully be recuperated.

    Palavras-chave : Anglo-Boer War; South African War; postmodernism; historiography; Afrikaner identity.
