Dr Theresa Edlmann

Theresa Edlmann is founding Director of the Legacies of Apartheid Wars Project, established in 2012 in the Rhodes University History Department.

She holds a BA (Hons) from University of Natal (Pietermaritzburg), HDE (Secondary) from UCT, and an MA from Rhodes University.

Her current work has emerged out of doctoral research into the psychosocial legacies of conscription into the apartheid-era South African Defence Force. Her current focus on these issues builds on decades of involvement in social transformation, peace activism, development work, community drama, conflict transformation, educational and NGO programmes, community psychology and academic research both in South Africa and internationally.

Theresa’s research interests include peace-building through narrative-based inquiry in the fields of social history and social psychology, particularly the possibilities of narrative repair in contexts that are dealing with the legacies of war, violence and social conflict.
