Abstract


The aim of this research proposal has been to address the absence of an up to date and detailed bibliographic record of Eswatini (Swaziland) literary production. To this end, an international interdisciplinary team made up of researchers from the Department of African Languages and Literature, UNISWA library, and the English Department at Acadia University, Canada have collaborated to produce an exhaustive annotated bibliography of the Kingdom’s prose fiction, drama, poetry, and other forms of creative writing in English and siSwati. UNISWA students who were hired gained valuable skills in document identification and retrieval, as well as engaging with and analysing texts. Hundreds of texts discovered in libraries and archives in Eswatini (Swaziland) and South Africa were scrutinized, along with local newspapers and magazines, to produce the final result: An Annotated Bio-bibliography of the literature of Eswatini (Swaziland) housed on a digital platform
