About Dr Faeeza Ballim


PhD., University of Witwatersrand (2017)

MSc., Oxford University (2011)

B.A. University of Witwatersrand (2008)

I have special interests in science and technology studies and economic history. My PhD focused on the history of the state corporations Iscor and Eskom (responsible for steel manufacturing and electricity generation respectively) in a small town in the bush veld of Limpopo from the 1970s to the present.
