QUEER KINSHIP - SOUTH AFRICAN PERSPECTIVES ON THE SEXUAL POLITICS OF FAMILY-MAKING AND BELONGING
Edited by Tracy Morison, Ingrid Lynch, & Vasu Reddy
What makes kinship queer? This collection from leading and emerging thinkers in gender and sexualities interrogates the politics of belonging, shining a light on the outcasts, rebels, and pioneers. Queer Kinship brings together an array of thought-provoking perspectives on what it means to love and be loved, to ‘do family’ and to belong in the South African context.
The collection includes a number of different topic areas, disciplinary approaches, and theoretical lenses on familial relations, reproduction, and citizenship. The text amplifies the voices of those who are bending, breaking, and remaking the rules of being and belonging. Photo essays and artworks offer moving glimpses into the new life worlds being created in and among the ‘normal’ and the mundane.
MEN'S PATHWAYS TO PARENTHOOD - SILENCES AND HETEROSEXUAL GENDERED NORMS
By Tracy Morison & Catriona I Macleod
How does the decision to become a parent unfold for heterosexual men? Is becoming a father a 'decision' at all or a series of events? These questions are the starting point for this critical book, in which the authors unravel the social and interpersonal processes – shaped by deeply entrenched socio-cultural norms – that come to bear on parenthood decision-making in the South African context. Drawing on the narratives of white, Afrikaans women and men, Men’s Pathways to Parenthood uses an innovative discursive method to illuminate the roles masculinity, whiteness, class, and heteronormativity play in these accounts. Men’s Pathways to Parenthood addresses an under-researched topic in gender studies – namely, men and reproductive decision-making.

SOUTH AFRICAN WOMEN AS CHAMPIONS OF CHANGE
Wrote chapter on Interventions addressing violence against women.
The publication of this book forms part of a civil society programme of action for the African Women's Decade, coordinated by South African Women in Dialogue. It reports on the main issues facing South African women, namely: 1) poverty eradication in the context of gender; 2) early childhood development (ECD) in the context of gender; 3) violence against women; and 4) co-ordination of civil society initiatives. A fifth theme which cuts across all the others is employment creation.
