The Legacies of Apartheid Wars Project was established in the Rhodes University History Department in 2011. Its aim is respond to the pervading silences and adversarial public debates that have characterised the legacies of apartheid era conflicts by facilitating creative conversations between people who were constructed as “other” to each other during this period of history. The LAWs Project was founded by Rhodes doctoral student Theresa Edlmann and is funded by Atlantic Philanthropies.
