Call for applications for the 2nd ISE Pre-congress Workshop for Emerging Ethnobiologists

Dear ISE Members,

The 1st International Society of Ethnobiology (ISE) pre-Congress Workshop for Emerging Ethnobiologists, held in Tofino, Canada in 2010, has been recognized by many as a resounding success. On the wave its success, the ISE is organizing a 2nd international pre-congress workshop for students, post docs and early career ethnobiologists, in conjunction with the 13th ISE Congress, Montpellier, France. The three-day intensive workshop (Thursday 17 May – Sunday 20 May) will bring together Indigenous and non-Indigenous participants with leading experts from around the world for seminars on cutting edge topics, exchange of experiences, relationship-building, and fostering collaborations into the future. The 2010 Workshop demonstrated the many fresh and new ideas that students and early career ethnobiologists bring to Ethnobiology as a discipline and to the ISE as a society and the ideas, problems and challenges that they raised during the ISE Congress in Tofino were well received. Similarly, the conclusions and recommendations from the 2012 Workshop will be presented during the first ISE General Assembly, providing all Congress participants an opportunity to receive feedback on how to improve the quality of education within the discipline of Ethnobiology.
