Next Society Event: 9th Jan 2014 - Lecture - From ‘doing ethnography’ to appreciating history in Western Ethiopia - Wendy James
7:00pm, Room B102 Brunei Gallery, SOAS, Russell Square, London WC1H 0XG - Public lecture (all welcome)
Ethiopia's western escarpment, a hilly zone facing and extending into Sudan, has long been the homeland of a patchwork of minority languages and peoples. In the 1960's Prof James undertook ethnographic studies on the Sudan side of the border, and in the 1970's, continued this work on the Ethiopian side. Historical events, including refugee movements, have since highlighted surprising processes of continuity in the region, which Prof James will explain and illustrate with photos and videos.
Wendy James is Emeritus Professor of Social Anthropology, University of Oxford.
