Good Day Everyone,

We hope that this message finds you in warm spirits.

The Chair in Science Communication at Stellenbosch University, Professor Mehita Iqani in collaboration with Water for the Future (NGO), invites researchers, creatives and collaborators interested in who work with, on, and in the Jukskei’s riparian biome to participate in the Riparian Urbanism symposium, taking place between 22-23 September 2022 in Johannesburg. Artists, activists, natural scientists, hydrologists, ecologists, urbanists, designers, historians, anthropologists, policy makers, social scientists, healers are encouraged to describe, analyse, and theorise how Johannesburg and its residents relate to the temperamental Jukskei. 

We hope to illustrate the potential of critical interdisciplinary studies of Johannesburg to deepen social and scientific understandings of and interactions with the river. There are no conference fees for this symposium. We ask presenters who have the means to consider a donation to Water For The Future in lieu of paying conference fees.

To participate, please share a presentation title, 250-word abstract and 100-word bio by 1 July 2022. All abstracts will be peer reviewed by an invited conference committee composed of experts from various disciplines. A limited number of travel or accommodation subsidies will be available to scholars in need, please indicate if you would like to apply for this on submission of your abstract. Postgraduate students from Africa will be prioritised for this funding support. Visa letters, travel information and logistical support will be offered to invited speakers to facilitate their attendance in Johannesburg. For more information, please view our call here

All symposium applications and queries can be sent to Fumani on fumanim@sun.ac.za.  


Warm Regards,
