Neil Roos is Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities at the University of Fort Hare. He is also one of the lead implementers of the South African Department of Higher Education and Training’s national collaborative Future Professors Programme (FPP), which is committed to excellence and transformation, runs across all disciplines, and aims to fast-track early career professional scholars in the South African higher education system towards the professoriate. Roos took his doctoral degree in history at the University of North West, an institution on South African’s rural periphery. He writes on histories of race, and his recent research has focused on the historical, moral and political dimensions of white everyday life in apartheid South Africa. From this body of work, he has published essays in Social History, the Journal of Social History, The Historical Journal and International Review of Social History, and he has a book entitled Ordinary Whites in Apartheid Society forthcoming from Indiana University Press. He has recently written on contemporary iterations of whiteness, white racial identity, masculinity and racial violence in South Africa. Roos is also interested in historiography and theory, especially the theoretical moorings of a post-Marxist, left wing social history.
