Nice idea with the forum working as a noticeboard. Will it at some time be possible to get the new posts in feeds?

Yes, there is RSS support (
but no auto-detection yet fixed!). The feed address is http://antropologi.info/anthropology/forum/rss.php
I should have mentioned that I’ve neglected the calendar due to spam-attacks, I’ll add a new one soon (when the new version is out)

My company is searching for anthropologists and ethnographers in the US, Europe, China, India and Japan for specialized market research in emotional branding. It is part-time work and great pay. If you are interested in more information, please reply. Thanks!
hi - I hope i’ve posted this in the right place now - thanks
Finnmark 2007 Expedition
A unique dog-sledding expedition focusing on the early victims of climate change - leaving the UK for the arctic on March the 7th 2007.
“We shall be travelling on dogsleds through Arctic Finnmark, from the Barents Sea to the Atlantic, a journey of close to 1,500 kilometres in rugged conditions and temperatures ranging from minus 10 degrees C to minus 35 degrees”
The expedition focuses on the lives of an indigenous people of Finnmark, the Sámi. It’s a human story rather than a cold scientific story. It’s a drama that is easily relatable through interviews and observation - the effects of climate change will be made real and the implications more pressing by focusing on real lives.
“. . . The fate of the Sámi is a forewarning of our own fate, if we don’t take action now. . .” Adam Munthe (Finnmark 2007 Expedition leader)
The “action” Munthe refers to is the social and political change needed to reduce the speed of climate change, from government level down to the life choices of the individual.
The Sámi are dependent upon reindeer herding as a way of life. The animals and the landscape are necessary to their survival and climate change is taking a toll on the reindeer herds’ migration patterns and eating habits. The impact will be made evident through field interviews with the Sámi about the changes taking place in their community.
The Sámi have a 10,000 year history in Finnmark with a zero carbon footprint. The Sámi represent an example of how people can live with a zero carbon footprint. The Sámi’s lives have been sustainable for 10,000 years, but that sustainability is now under threat from climate change that is, according to an international consensus among scientists, accelerated by the industrial development of the West.
The expedition seeks to highlight how the Sámi’s traditonal knowledge and sustainable practices are vitally important to the rest of the world as we battle against climate change.
This British led expedition brings together a writer, social anthropologists and scientists from the UK and internationally.
The expedition is expected to provide some of the most compelling evidence to date of the effect that global warming is having on the Sámi people who are “among the world’s first victims of climate change”.
The team who will be traveling through some of Europe’s most inaccessible terrain have also been asked by NASA to document snow crystals at specific GPS positions along the 1,500km route on their behalf. NASA are unable to reach such remote areas, and the data gathering will form part of the Global Snowflake Network (http://education.gsfc.nasa.gov/gsn). continues
The expedition is led by British writer and activist, Adam Munthe, FRGS, who was inspired by his grandfather Axel Munthe’s, journey through the same region at the beginning of the last century. Axel Munthe travelled with the great Sámi shaman and hunter Johan Turi and Turi’s great nephew, Johan Mathis Turi, is also part of the expedition team. Johan Mathis Turi is a Sámi reindeer herder and is also Secretary-General of The Association of World Reindeer Herders as well as Chairman of the Resource Centre for the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
Sketchbook from Serbia at The Ethnographic Museum in Belgrade May 3rd - 17th May
A photographic exhibition by British artist
The exhibition of photographs, Sketchbook from Serbia by Mark Yuill, shown at the Ethnographic Museum in Belgrade, allows a broad audience to get to know Serbia, which is close to and at the same time distant from the people of Belgrade and Serbia. Mark Yuill photographs symbols of permanence and transience, adaptation and integration into a global context, he photographs symbols of subcultural structures as well as elite culture. The author portrays the symbolic reality of Serbia which is infinitely multifaceted.

Announcing the world premiere of my documentary NUESTRO ABUELO ” Our Grandfather” Sunday 22nd July Durango Durango Mexico. The film is an intimate portrait of a HUICHOL family. The Huichols are an indigenous tribe that number 30,000 and live in the remote Sierra Madre in Central Mexico. They are Shamans, Hunters and farmers and havent changed their way of life for hundreds of years. I am the first European film maker to document these people. I am also traveling back to the community and going to show them the film. We will have the UK premiere at BAFTA in October 2007.
