Transgressing Boundaries includes some of the most interesting debates informing cultural politics in South Africa today. To do so, it brings together renowned contributors from Africa, North America and the United Kingdom.

The book questions the boundaries between the academic disciplines by incorporating literary studies with anthropology, history, archaeology, art and gender studies. Through the various contributions, the complex interface between history and its representation is contested. Transgressing Boundaries illustrates both the autonomy of different fields of study, as well as the richness of the dialogue and the interface.
