Congratulations to Marieke, who just had a paper published in the ICES Journal of Marine Science! It is only recently that this renowned international journal has started to open up to the human dimensions in fisheries (and their management), and Marieke is one of the first anthropologists whose work is being recognised in this way. 


"As die see byt": Collaborative production experiment
Thu, 26 Nov 2020 - 08:15

We are extremely excited to be collaborating with "The Rainbow Exchange" on a theatrical production based on Dr. Louise Gammages PhD research in the southern Cape, specifically the scenario stories she developed together with fishers from Melkhoutfontein. This production, "As die see byt", will be performed in Melkhoutfontein next week. Fingers firmly crossed that Covid-2019 doesn't trip us up.
