Abstract:This special issue on 'hunting in contemporary Africa' draws on material from across sub-Saharan Africa, both Anglophone and Francophone. Most of the papers were first presented at a workshop held in Cologne at the end of March 2015. Hunting is defined flexibly in order to draw out the parallels between a diverse set of practices that involve the tracking and capture of prey - whether that prey is 'wildlife' or human. Contributions: Moving targets: hunting in contemporary Africa (Robert Gordon); Animals, prey, and enemies: hunting and killing in an African counter-insurgency (Luise White); Enacting and stabilising the nature of colonial history through hunting in the South African Highveld (André Goodrich); Turbulent times: fighting history today in Tanzania's trophy hunting spaces (V. Corey Wright); The political ecology of hunting in Namibia's Kaokoveld: from Dorsland Trekkers' elephant hunts to trophy-hunting in contemporary conservancies (Michael Bollig, Elsemi Olwage); The dankun network: the donso hunters of Burkina Faso between ecological change and new associations (Lorenzo Ferrarini); The universal hunter? (Thomas Widlok); Routinising genocide: the politics and practice of vermin extermination in the Cape Province c.1889-1994 (Lance van Sittert); Habits of the hunters: the biopolitics of combatting predation amongst small stock farmers in southern Namibia (Janie Swanepoel); Camouflage: the hunting origins of worlding in Africa (Louisa Lombard); Power battles on South African trophy-hunting farms: farm workers, resistance and mobility in the Karoo (Femke Brandt).
