Afrikaans Literature and Language

According to South Africa’s 2001 census, Afrikaans is spoken by 13.3 percent of the population, mainly coloureds and whites. The language has its roots in 17th-century Dutch, with influences from English, Malay, German, Portuguese, French, and some Bantu and Khoisan languages. Initially known as Cape Dutch, in 1925 Afrikaans was recognized as an official language, alongside English. After the National Party came into power in South Africa in 1948, the civil service gradually became predominantly Afrikaans and Afrikaans the de facto language of government and the courts.

poster festival voor het AfrikaansWith the ending of apartheid in 1994, Afrikaans became one of the eleven official languages of South Africa. In terms of education, social events, media and general status it no longer receives preferential treatment from the government. However, Afrikaans remains “alive and kicking”. It is “not just any language”, as the organizers of the ‘Festival voor het Afrikaans’ (Festival of Afrikaans) (Amsterdam, 17-19 June 2011) aim to demonstrate. Through Afrikaans music, theatre, literature and poetry they hope “to seduce the audience” and show something of the rich cultural heritage of Afrikaans. Performances by well-known Afrikaans-speaking artists and writers from South Africa celebrate the connection and the large degree of mutual intelligibility between Afrikaans and Dutch.

To coincide with the festival and provide background information, the Library, Documentation and Information Department of the African Studies Centre has compiled the present web dossier, based on the ASC library collection. In addition to titles on Afrikaans literature and music, language policy, and the position and use of Afrikaans in postapartheid South Africa, the dossier contains titles of Afrikaans novels, short stories, poetry, prose and drama published since 2000, a selection from the total African Studies Centre collection of Afrikaans literature.

All titles are available in the ASC Library. Each title links directly to the corresponding record in the library’s online catalogue, which provides fur#Short storiesther bibliographic details and loan information, and in many cases also an abstract. The dossier concludes with a selection of links to relevant web sites.
