B Camminga is currently undertaking a PhD in Sociology at UCT entitled Bodies over Borders and Borders over Bodies: the Gender Refugee and the Imagined South Africa, supervised by Deborah Posel, Zethu Matebeni and Susan Levine.

Her current research focuses on knowledge production and concepts of the everyday in relation to the needs of transgender people living in South Africa. In particular she is interested in how transgender identity functions in South Africa and in the collective battle for a language of self-description, for words that empower and for an identification that is not predicated on the existence of any other group, identity or institution.
