dc.description.abstract • Opsomming: Die analities-historiese denkrigting in Frankryk, bekend as die Annalesskool, is deur Lucien Febvre en Marc Bloch tot stand gebring en meesterlik deur Fernand Braudel in sy klassieke werk oor die Middellandse Seegebied (1949) toegepas. Hierdie benadering geniet reeds wêreldwye aansien en navolging omdat dit die klem hoofsaaklik laat val op die soort geskiedenis wat nie op die tradisionele vlak of in gebaande weë lê nie. Gevolglik bied dit 'n uiters geskikte metode waarvolgens 'n plaaslike gemeenskap bestudeer kan word. Die Annales beoog onder meer juis om 'n gemeenskap se denk- en handelswyse (mentalité) te begryp deur byvoorbeeld na te gaan in hoeverre selfs elementêre faktore - soos die weerpatroon - die bestaan van so 'n gemeenskap beïnvloed of tot sonderlinge standpunte/houdings en gedrag lei. In hierdie bydrae word gepoog om die mentalité van die Kowie (Port Alfred), 'n gemeenskap aan die Oos-Kaapse kus, oor 'n tydperk van ruim dertig jaar te ontleed. en_US
dc.description.abstract • Summary: The Annales is an internationally renowned French school of historical analysis founded by Lucien Febvre and Marc Bloch and brilliantly expounded by Fernand Braudel in his classic work on rhe Mediterranean and the Mediterranean world (first published in 1949). By its emphasis on history that happened off the beaten track, the' Annales lends itself particularly well to rhe study of a local community. Its aim is inter alia to capture a community's mentalité, namely its peculiar attitudes and ethos as shaped by even the most elemental facts of its existence, including its pattern of weather. This article is an effort to analyse the mentalité of the Eastern Cape coastal community of the Kowie (Port Alfred) over a period of more than thirty years.
