Memory and Northern Rhodesia’s White Diaspora


Year Published: 2015




Pamela Shurmer-Smith, an anthropologist, has traced survivors of Northern Rhodesia’s white diaspora, globally and through cyber-space, to discover how new lives were constructed and new perspectives generated. Her account draws on the power of postcolonial memory to understand the many ways that copper miners, district officers, school-children and housewives became the empire’s relics. Her work is not that of a dispassionate outsider but of one who grew up in Northern Rhodesia, knew its colonial population and has considerable affection for Zambia. It is her commemoration of 50 years of Independence.
