hi I want to tell anthropologi info about an important expedition working with the indigenous peoples of the arctic, the Sami, that left the Uk on March 7th. The website is http://finnmark2007.com I know this is the wrong place to post this info but i’m having trouble finding the right place! thanks
Yes, it’s the wrong place, but below the header and images you’ll find the message >> If you want to post announcements / call for papers - it leads you to the forum / black board where you can post stuff like this.
But nevertheless, thanks for the information.

I must regretfully agree with Vytis on that anthropology as a discipline is rather static in this region. Commenting from Czech perspective, despite some progressive, enthusiastic departments and individuals, old structures (that of folklore studies) are still firmly rooted in the concepts of social sciences. From my point of view what is utmost needed are scholarships and research and travel grants for students dedicated to anthropology, as this region is generally neglected by large funding bodies, who regard those countries as already developed (but perhaps in different areas..).
