Site Launch

apartheidheritages-bookcoverWe’re proud to begin the introductory phase of the Apartheid Heritages blog and book project portfolio.  This website will compile the various projects related to the spatial history of South Africa’s townships, and will combine the various design and web development efforts that have gone into the many projects that make up the combined Apartheid Heritages collection.

Please help us test the site and its various features, and we’d love to hear back from you if you have any questions or comments.  (You can find us at the Contact page.)  Thanks!
