Community engagements

Van Eeden’s community engagement activities in regional history studies mainly covers parts of the Gauteng region but also in selective parts of the Free State Province, The North-West Province and the Western and Eastern Cape Province. In this regard several book publications had been developed through regional and local research, especially with regards to the economic and socio-cultural impact of mining and township developments on communities. The impact of corporate establishments regionally, and nationally, also form part of the economic hubs of regions and regional developments which in turn contribute to the economic and socio-cultural wellbeing of the communities it serves. These contributions, though associated with community engagements, very much form part of the regional historiographies of South Africa.
