Associate Professor and Chair of Africana Studies Angel David Nieves presented a paper on a panel titled “From the Holocaust to Apartheid: Analyzing Geographies of Oppression,” at the Annual Association of American Geographers meeting Feb. 24-28 in New York City.


In his paper “The Soweto HGIS Project: Cartographies of Apartheid and Resistance, 1904-1994,” Nieves described and analyzed the initial findings in his study of the architectural designs and construction of former all-Black townships in apartheid-era Johannesburg.  The project examines the micro-geography of resistance and the layering of meaning and action between the apartheid state and township residents across its built form.
