Ngaka Mosiane joined the Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research in July 2013 as a Mellon Foundation Fellow. His research brings into conversation livelihoods research and critical urbanism, drawing on empirical work in Rustenburg to demonstrate the ways in which ‘ordinary people’ creatively and provisionally make their lives – and the city itself. Although Ngaka has some work and educational experiences from various institutions in South Africa and overseas, he spent much of his career teaching human geography at the University of North-West, and until recently at the University of Fort Hare. His research interests cut across the fields of city studies/urban development and cultural geography.
