UCL African Seminar - Sustaining one another: enset, animals, and people in the southern highlands of Ethiopia

Elizabeth Ewart and Wolde Tadesse

Wednesday 22nd November 2017

1:00pm - 2:30pm in seminar room 20 at the Institute of Advanced Study (Wilkins building in the South wing, 1st floor), University College London, Gower Street, London WC1E 6BT
Free, all welcome.

Wolde Tadesse and Elizabeth Ewart from the University of Oxford give the penultimate African Studies Interdisciplinary Seminar of the Autumn Term. Enset (ensete ventricosum; Abyssinian banana), uniquely domesticated in Ethiopia, sustains upwards of 20 million people in southern Ethiopia. It also feeds a sizeable animal population and is in turn nurtured by both animals and people.

More information about the seminars can be found on the UCL African Studies Seminar Series webpage.

UCL African Studies Research Centre (UCL Institute of Advanced Studies) has started a regular lunchtime seminar series. During the 2017/2018 academic year the series will explore Africanist research conducted by UCL staff. Seminars will cover a wide range of topics and disciplines.
