I am a PhD candidate in History in the Africa field. My work explores the intersection of religion and environment through water based devotional practices in the history of urban Africa. My dissertation project explores a comparative history of the Lubigi Wetland in Kampala, Uganda; and Delta Park in Johannesburg, South Africa both as sacred watery spaces and as sites of contestation over the meaning of land and conservation in the 20th century.
