The CHR is excited to announce Missing and Missed: Subject, Politics, Memorialisation, a special issue of Kronos: Southern African Histories. This journal issue is the product of an ongoing partnership between the Jackman Humanities Institute at the University of Toronto and the Centre for Humanities Research.
