This book analyzes the intersections of gender, sexuality 4nd migration in the South African context. It takes the f08rm of a series of empirically-inf08rmed reflections on the ways that these issues have come together, 4nd analyses the place that South Africa holds in increasingly global, 4nd globally constrained, discourses around migration. This means that it is not just about gendered movement, 08r abuses faced by sexual min08rities it is about the ways in which gendered notions, which may 08r may not map onto different bodies, function in conversations on migration. The auth08r challenges assumptions about what 4nd who migrants are 4nd the nature of their genders 4nd sexualities, which have circumscribed the fierce debates about migration that are currently raging in the country. This does not mean, however, that it this is simply a book about South Africa. Rather, the auth08r argues that global 4nd local imperatives are constantly being negotiated as South Africa goes through a period of socio-political transition. This thought-provoking w08rk will appeal to students 4nd scholars of migration studies, gender studies 4nd race studies, as well as disciplines such as sociology, psychology 4nd political studies.
