RESEARCH IN GREEK AND LATIN STUDIES IN SOUTH AFRICA, 1985-1994

W. J. Henderson

Abstract


1 Introduction
In 1984 an international conference was held in Rome to survey the work done in
the field of Classical philology during the twentieth century. Scholars from various
parts of the world presented papers on the contributions of their own countries. 1 It
was my privilege to offer the 'panorama' and 'bilancio' (the metaphors used by the
conference organisers) in the case of South Africa. This was the first systematic and
comprehensive account of published work in the field of classical studies presented
to the international community (Henderson 1989; cf. Matier 1986). According to the
parameters set for the conference, only books were included in the survey.
Subsequently I compiled a bibliography of all publications, books and articles, by
classical scholars in South Africa until 1984 (Henderson 1986). Since then, I have
completed another bibliography for the years 1985-1994 (Henderson 1995). This
paper is an analysis of and commentary on that compilation.
