Daniel Dix

Daniel Dix is in the second year of his MA by coursework and dissertation. During his coursework he has focused on conceptualisations of the environment, violence, trauma, and history in public life. This year he is focusing on the minor dissertation component of his degree, in which he aims to write about the quotidian ways in which the colonial order of things was imagined, contested, and entrenched at some of the lower levels of the expanding bureaucracy. At the moment he is focusing on the everyday practices of the magistracy of Durban in the early 1890s.
