Abstract

The article explores how, where, and why teaching occurs in the areas of gender and sexualities in South African Higher Education sites. The article maps the terrain of disciplinary engagement with sexualities and gender in South African Higher Education, with introductory research into the teaching of sexualities and gender in higher education institutions in South Africa. Central to the article is a critical discussion of some of the key findings from a preliminary audit of universities in South Africa where sexuality and gender is taught across disciplines.
