Sex in Transition: Remaking Gender and Race in South Africa

UW Associate Professor of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies presents a book that argues that the system of apartheid in South Africa relied not just on racial segregation, but on an interrelated system of sexed oppression that was at once rigid and flexible. Sex in Transition is the first academic work to look at the way South Africans who identified as transgender, transvestite, intersex, lesbian, gay, or eschewing of those categories expose the gender contradictions in the country's transition to democracy.

Amanda Lock SwarrAmanda Lock Swarr is Associate Professor of Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies at the University of Washington, Seattle. She is the coeditor (with Richa Nagar) of Critical Transnational Feminist Praxis, also published by SUNY Press.
