Rehren, Dr. Thilo, U. College London, London, United Kingdom - To aid conference on 'World of Iron,' 2009, Natural History Museum, London, in collaboration with Dr. Harald A. Veldhuijzen

'World of Iron'
February 16-20, 2009, Natural History Museum, London, United Kingdom
Organizers: Thilo Rehren and Harald A. Veldhuizen (University College London)

This conference emphasized the anthropological significance of the inception, adoption, expansion, and impact of prehistoric iron production around the world. Combining regional and themed sessions, it related archaeological and archaeometallurgical studies to wider anthropological issues such as technological style; variation, change and development; technical and social adaptation; and the evolving influences of iron on society and on the physical environment. This week-long event formed the first attempt to synthesize the latest research being conducted on iron and steel around the world and to stimulate future research of the highest level. It has created a globally comparative perspective, integrating insights gained from emerging analytical techniques, anthropology of technology, and
environmental history, and highlighting nuances often obscured by Eurocentric perspectives. By bringing together established scholars and young researchers from four key regions -- Africa, East Asia, the Indian Subcontinent, Western and Central Asia -- it stimulated an unprecedented international exchange of ideas and experiences. The peerreviewed
and edited proceedings will be published by Archetype and will feature a chapter for each session?s papers, with a lead overview by the session chair. They will constitute an important step forward in the study of iron in its ancient cultural contexts.

Approve Date: 
November 22, 2012
Project Title: 
To support the development of a doctoral program in anthropology at Addis Ababa University, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia - Institutional Development Grant

The Department of Social Anthropology at Addis Ababa University launched a Ph.D program in 2010 on its own. In collaboration with anthropology departments in Europe, US, and Japan, the Department now intends to improve the theoretical and methodological training of Ph.D. students. The IDG grant will be used to intensify international exposure and exchange; improve the quality of anthropological training by bringing in experienced guest lectuerers and disseration co-advisors and examiners; upgrade the current curriculum in consultation with partner institutions; provide modest support for student field research; and build up the library and electronic resources. Ethiopia has a great need for highly trained anthropologists in academic and non-academic positions and the IDG will help the Department to train future generations to fill these positions. It will also help promote anthropology as an academic discipline in Ethiopia, where it is little known. By training local anthropologists who will do their fieldwork in their own country, we also wish to achieve a greater transparency in the dissemination of results among the researched communities and thus achieve a greater engagement.
