Abstract

Abstract:

The Olive Schreiner House in Cradock, South Africa, is an author museum that explores the contributions of an important writer, activist, and early feminist by facilitating new narratives. In the meeting of Schreiner’s texts and contemporary narratives of South African cultural history, this author museum writes a new discourse between literature and society, historic past and democratic present. These intersections result in a narrative project using a historic literary figure to emphasize the young South African democracy in which the museum is situated.
