Ciraj Rassool (Ph.D.) is professor of history and director of the African Programme in Museum and Heritage Studies at the University of the Western Cape. He has served on the boards of the District Six Museum and Iziko Museums of South Africa. Among his co-authored and co-edited books are Recalling Community in Cape Town: Creating and Curating the District Six Museum (2001), Museum Frictions: Public Cultures/Global Transformations (2006) and The Politics of Heritage in Africa: Economies, Histories, and Infrastructures (2015). His research for Skeletons in the Cupboard: South African museums and the trade in human remains, 1907–1917 (2000) led to the repatriation of the remains of Klaas and Trooi Pienaar from Vienna and their reburial at Kuruman, South Africa in 2012. His collaborative project on The South African Empire was published as a special issue of the Journal of Southern African Studies in 2015.
