Wenzel); the loosening of tongues on taboo subjects in South African literature (V. Briault Manus); contestation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission in literature (B. Deb); the real effectiveness of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (S.I. Dube); reactions to the Amy Biehl amnesty decision (S. Gish); a new form of literature/historiography in South Africa? (E. Dubourdieu); the work of J.M. Coetzee in the postapartheid era (S. Collingwood-Whitlock); attitudes to geographical renaming (E. Jenkins); Afrikaner responses to postapartheid South Africa (W.
