18-24 July 2019 A collective field work in Nandi Hills, Kenya

SALMEA team members and some of their partners conduct field work in central Kenya based upon the ECRIS methodology conceived by political anthropologist Jean-Pierre Olivier de Sardan. They will study cemeteries as sites where the notion of self-accomplishment gets embodied and implemented, through issues like access to land, the relations to ancestors, the links to the family, the opulence of the funerals, etc.
