Seminar Date
September 11, 2013
This presentation will be providing a glimpse of the book that is currently with publishers and is based on the findings of the study entitled: The scrutiny on revival of circumcision practices in the post-apartheid South Africa: a case study of perceptions of young men based in Durban, Jozini and Hluhluwe communities in KwaZulu-Natal (Mthembu, Chellan & Mtshali, 2012). It will give some clues on what is contained in various chapters of the book and focussing more on the methodological and the analytical approaches that were adopted in dissecting data in this regard. Lastly, it will briefly highlight some of the findings that revealed that some of the informants felt that some of the current indigenous cultural practices that are being revived such as circumcision rite tend to be advancing foreign values as it is presently conducted mostly in the clinics and hospitals.
