oa South African Journal of Cultural History - Afrikaanse kultuurverenigings as kultuurverskynsels
The role of Afrikaner cultural organisations as a particular phenomena in the history of the Afrikaner is discussed. The origins and development of these organisations are categorised into five chronological periods and the meaning and implications of each period identified. On the basis of this historical analysis six factors that played a major role in moulding the Afrikaner's cultural movement are identified. In the final two sections the role and significance of these organisations, especially for the urbanisation of the Afrikaner, are evaluated.
