I see a link, which may be indirect, with the this kind of work and my
interest in socialization processes and story-telling in a rural African
context. I have been using the work of Harold Scheub on the Xhosa
iintsomi (fabulous tale). I have done research on this in the Eastern
Cape region of South Africa. Has your group dealt at all with
story-telling as a process of cognitive socialization?

Thank you very much for doing this.
If you, Jan or Inga-Lill, or others, are interested, we can send you
what we at LCHC have been working on related to Gunilla's work: we
have been working hard since she first sent us a copy of her book, in

Our playworld group here at LCHC is also very interested in related
work that her students are, perhaps, doing now (and we have a reader
of Swedish among us!).
Thank you,
