In race-regulation regimes like South Africa and the United States, interracial intimacies remain difficult even decades after odious laws prohibiting love and marriage were repealed. How does reprisal work in the absence of legal sanction against interracial romance, and how do young people manage different forms of reprisal on former white university campuses as they struggle to learn, live, and love together? This interactive presentation by 2016-17 CASBS fellow Jonathan Jansen will present video interview data on ten interracial student couples and their struggles with intimacy on campuses and in communities hostile to love across the color line.
