Funding: Five Hundred Years Archive: Post-docs and scholarships

The Five Hundred Year Archive project  focuses on bringing together scattered, lost, misidentified and inaccessible records of pre-colonial Southern Africa. Post-docs and research scholarships are available for digital archivists and  graduate students:

The Five Hundred Year Archive (FYA) project by the Archival  and Public Culture Research Initiative  (APC) builds on a resurgence of research interest in the history of Southern Africa in the five-hundred year period before the advent of colonialism. It aims to build an online research intervention that brings together a variety of institutional and discipline specific archival material in a collaborative, single searchable online portal. The APC is based at the University of Cape Town in South Africa.
