  1. Hi! I just wanted to drop you a line and say thanks for being on the SAGE publications podcast where you talk about your paper “An act of geographical violence…”. I’m basically an armchair scholar and I was fascinated by how you drew the connection between the desire to solve crimes and the desire to fill in blank spaces on a map!

    1. Hi Elijah! Thanks so much for your comment! This made my day to receive. Please let me know if you’d like a copy of the paper; I’d be happy to send it along! – Molly

  2. Molly–thanks for the interesting paper. Your ref to the novel about the Truth Commission reminded me that Kader Asmal had gone back to SA post-94 to be Minister of Water (he was one of the few who got high marks for his work in gov’t as I remember!). He was something of a critic of the TRC (again, as I remember) for letting perpetrators off the hook.
    All best.
