LOCAL KNOWLEDGE STUDIES IN ETHIOPIA RECONSIDERED: CREATIVITIES, TRANSMISSION, SHARING AND BEYOND [Abstract ID: 1209-07]
Local-knowledge studies have been a booming topic of anthropological research since the 1990s. However, there was, at the beginning, a clear contrast in the approaches between ethno-scientific research and applied anthropological studies. Now, many anthropologists have started looking at the generation and transmission of local knowledges, not as an event, but a process. Interactionist approaches are more commonly found in several anthropological/ethno-biological researches. In this presentation, we would like to focus on those research made in Ethiopia from a variety of perspectives in local knowledge studies together for further discussion and mutual criticism for the next generation of research on these topics.
