Forbidden Desire

NIAS Seminar

Susanne Klausen, Professor of History at Carleton University, will give a seminar on her research into interracial intimacy in South Africa during Apartheid, 1948-1994.

How important was the regulation of sexuality to the maintenance of white supremacy in South Africa during apartheid? What was the impact of the enforcement of legislation criminalizing inter-racial sex from the 1950s to the 1980s on South African citizens and subjects as well as internationally? What techniques did the police and courts utilize to enforce that law?
