Présentation
’Going Places’ aims to kick-start a new Arts/Humanities-Science collaboration and Past-Present comparison that will demonstrate how such approaches can generate vital data to contextualise and inform decision-making, engage and educate stakeholders, and serve as a pilot for a bigger project on Ethiopian economic and heritage development. To achieve these aims within the 8-month period, we will use our proven Large Grant approach to research the Amhara and Tigray regions of Ethiopia and meet six inter-connected objectives : 1) Work with the International Livestock Research Institute to empower women and ensure their centrality in the development of Ethiopia’s poultry industry. 2) Facilitate Ethiopia’s heritage development through collaboration with the National Museum of Ethiopia and the British Museum’s Africa Programme. 3) Survey and record the material cultures of chicken husbandry. This will be undertaken during anthropological fieldwork, whilst collections held in Ethiopian and UK museums will be surveyed to develop linked Ethiopian-UK educational materials (linked to objective 2). 4) Survey, analyse and record local Ethiopian chicken breeds using osteometric/geometric morphometric, genetic and stable isotope analysis to inform on breed resilience/management. Results will be compared with the ancient data (objective 5). 5) Undertake a deep-time analysis of Ethiopian chicken breed/husbandry. Working with the National Museum of Ethiopia, the introduction, diversity, development and management of ancient Ethiopian chickens will be explored through scientific analysis of archaeological specimens. 6) Generate strong collaboratively produced outputs that move forward scholarship and feed into policy (e.g. World Bank and UN FAO).
