Abstract:After contextualizing history teaching and history teaching associations in South Africa, and outlining broad historiographic and political trends in history teaching, the author narrates in some detail the founding in 1986 of the South African Society for History Teaching (SASHT), its structure, role and impact on the education of history. She browses through 34 editions of the journal 'Yesterday and Today', since 1990 the official voice of the SASHT, and highlights trends or ideological approaches relating specifically to aspects of inclusion, exclusion and non-participation which reflect implications for belonging or not belonging impacting on SASHT activities. App., notes, ref., sum. in Afrikaans. [ASC Leiden abstract]
