Traditional Ecological Knowledge: Multidisciplinary Perspectives

Presented by ANU College of Asia & the Pacific

Throughout millennia, communities all over the world have accumulated detailed knowledge about their local environment, passing it down from one generation to another, either through daily practices such as hunting, fishing or gardening, or in the form of myths and stories.

Traditional ecological knowledge (TEK) is a very broad area that informs various types of research. Unsurprisingly, different disciplines have developed a wide range of aims, methodologies and theoretical frameworks for engaging with TEK. 

This workshop brings together researchers from a number of complementary academic fields - anthropology, linguistics, archaeology, biology, lawto facilitate the sharing of insights and individual expertise, and provide attendees with an inter-disciplinary appreciation of the ways in which they can engage with TEK in their own research.
