Abstract: As many long lasting conflicts in Africa have come to an end the continent is de- veloping very rapidly. These processes are mostly seen in urbanized post-war centres. The war past and the modernisation changes are responsible for the specific ephemeral climate of these places. Juba is a „liminal” city, tom between crisis and stabilisation, war and peace, chaos and order. This situation is intensified by spontaneous urbanization processes. Juba is a city in the making; it is also a place where globalisation and trade exchange are very intensive. This article describes the author’s reflections on the anthropological fieldwork in post- -war Juba. The liminality has profound impact on the life of the people in the city, inclu- ding the anthropologist during his fieldwork. The article shows how cultural phenomena characteristic of post-war African cities impact on the anthropologist and his work.
