Call for papers: The Politics of Architecture in Africa Workshop



The workshop will be held at the Johannesburg Institute for Advanced Study (JIAS) and aims to exploit the rich potential architecture offers to the study of politics across Africa. We are looking for scholars working on politics and architecture using a variety of examples and perspectives to join a week-long cross-disciplinary discussion.


The workshop takes place 1-7 December 2019 in Johannesburg. Living expenses are covered and there will be some travel bursaries available.

We hope to publish a collection of papers after the workshop.


Please send a 250-word abstract and short CV to asaproject@soas.ac.uk by Friday 29 March. Please use the subject heading ‘Johannesburg workshop’.


More details available here. If you would like to discuss your ideas further before submitting a proposal, please contact Prof Julia Gallagher on jg35@soas.ac.uk.


The workshop is organised in collaboration between the Department of Politics and International Studies, SOAS University of London and the Graduate School of Architecture, University of Johannesburg.
