Lecture - Enset, Animals, and People in the Southern Highlands of Ethiopia

Taddesse Wolde and Elizabeth Ewart

Thursday 8th February 2018

7:00pm, SWLT - Wolfson Lecture Theatre, Paul Webley Wing, New Senate House Building, SOAS, Russell Square, London WC1H 0XG - Public lecture (all welcome)

Dr Taddesse Wolde and Dr Elizabeth Ewart of Oxford University will present new findings from the research that they are conducting on Enset (Ensete ventricosum; Abyssinian banana). This plant is uniquely domesticated in Ethiopia and 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. The talk will trace some of the relations of co-dependence and mutual sustenance that characterize enset within Ethiopian highland agricultural systems.

Capacity at the venue is limited, so please reserve your place soon to avoid disappointment.
