Abstract:The articles in this 'ASR Forum' trace a history of the politics of marriage in South Africa: from the colonial consolidation of the authority of young husbands, to the self-assertion (as well as restriction) of young wives in the segregationist Union of South Africa, to the decline of marriage amidst enduring longing for domestic security. Articles: The politics of new African marriage in segregationist South Africa (Meghan Healy-Clancy); The white wedding: affect and economy in South Africa in the early twentieth century (Natasha Erlank); Marriage and bridewealth (ilobolo) in contemporary Zulu society (Dorrit Posel and Stephanie Rudwick); African marriage regulation and the remaking of gendered authority in colonial Natal, 1843-1875 (Nafisa Essop Sheik). Bibliogr., notes, ref., sum. in English and French. [Journal abstract]
