Join us in deepening social and scientific understandings of the Jukskei river, JHB! This symposium on #RiparianUrbanism is an assessment of Johannesburg’s history, development, and culture from the banks of the river that runs through it. Riparian refers to the interface between the river and the banks that define, direct and are eroded by it. Urbanism calls attention to those beings – human and nonhuman – who live at the aquatic-terrestrial boundary, how they use and manage the capricious river, and the city and urban landscapes that frame those interactions.
Over the course of 2 days, presentations from researchers, creatives and collaborators who work in the Jukskei’s riparian biome – including artists, activists, natural scientists, hydrologists, ecologists, urbanists, historians, anthropologists, & social scientists – will work to describe, analyse and theorise how Johannesburg and its residents relate to the temperamental Jukskei River.  You are welcome to participate in thinking through diverse critical studies of Johannesburg and its complex relation of ecology and social habitat. 

This symposium has been conceived and funded by the Chair in Science Communication at Stellenbosch University, in association with Water For The Future (NGO). Attendance to the symposium is free and the programme can be accessed here
