Industrial anthropolgy

I am working in the field of industril anthropology in South Africa.
My field site is a platinum mine near Rustenburg. I am just beginining this
research and would like to know if anyone else is doing similar work. The
interesting component of this reserach is that there is a major affirmative
action programme on the mine. This is resulting in the previous positions that
white employees on the mine being in jeapordy as black employees are moving
up the ranks. There are negotiations taking place over one's identity.
