UCT Press together with Cherryl Walker and Timm Hoffman invite you to join us for the book launch:

Contested Karoo: Interdisciplinary perspectives on change and continuity in South Africa’s drylands

This inter-disciplinary collection explores significant land-use changes in South Africa’s semi-arid Karoo region and their implications for social justice and the environment. It brings together recent scholarship by established and younger researchers in the social and the natural sciences to examine how the Karoo is being reconfigured as a new ‘resource frontier’ and the tensions and contestations that result.

The editors, Cherryl Walker and Timm Hoffman, will be in conversation with Emma Archer.

Please confirm your attendance by Thursday, 9 May 2024.
