The Johannesburg Institute for Advanced Study and the Tiyo Soga Community Museum, Mgwali, are excited to announce the Soga Studies Conference to be held both in person and virtually at the Johannesburg Institute for Advanced Study in March 2022.
Studies on the work, theology, philosophies and dynasty of the Reverend Tiyo ‘Zisani’ Soga have recently gained prominence in numerous disciplines and facets of life, with local and international relevance. Theorists, artists and family members all over the world are engaged in several exciting aspects of Soga scholarship. Sikhumbuzo Makandula of Rhodes University and Joanne Ruth Davis of JIAS have conceived of this conference as a means to enable dialogue and new avenues for continued Soga scholarship. We believe it will be of great benefit to all of the many stakeholders who are invested in this work.
We look forward to a gripping three days of meeting, thinking and sharing.
