Summary
"This collection investigates cities as sites of memory and desire (and of fear and forgetting); as contested spaces given to plays of power and privilege, identity and difference. How have the profound social and political transformations and the release of energies in South Africa post-1994 been written into its cities and public spaces?" "Desire Lines: Space, Memory and Identity in the Postapartheid City addresses the innovative strategies that have emerged in the sphere of public culture in postapartheid South Africa. The case studies pay particular attention to how these strategies relate to contests over heritage practices in community museums, tourism and other memory projects. The book explores attempts to recast heritage in contemporary South Africa as well as the conditions of constraint under which newer cultural practices and representations have emerged."--BOOK JACKET
