THE GRACE OF SUBSISTENCE: LESSONS FROM 'ABRAHAM AND SARAH' [Abstract ID: 1206-07]
The presentation will have three parts. (1) The first will briefly recall the main ideas and activities
that have led to the emergence of the "Guardians of productive landscapes" project under the auspices of Prof. Guenther Schlee, director of the Max Planck Institute of Social Anthropology (Halle/Saale, Germany), and the participation of scholars from the universities of Arba Minch and Mekelle. (2) The second part will call the various meanings of 'grace' to mind, which all are relevant for a full understanding of subsistence economy, not just as a technical process but also as an ethical and spiritual way of being. (3) Part three will support and deepen the argument using some passages taken from the first film in the "Guardians" series, entitled "Abraham and Sarah. Creators of a productive landscape".
