Bronwyn Kotzen joined WISER as a Visiting Research Fellow in January 2020. Bronwyn is a PhD candidate in Geography at the University of Cape Town. Her doctoral research focuses on the political economy of materiality in urban Africa by tracing Pan-African cement flows and is supported by Emory University’s African Critical Enquiry Programme and the Oppenheimer Memorial Trust. Bronwyn’s broader research explores the interstices between materiality, politics and place in rapidly developing urban centres.
