An interdisciplinary meeting, including presentations from some of Oxford's foremost researchers on the African Environment, will be held on Monday, 17 June. Speakers include economists, environmental historians, geographers, geomorphologists, political ecologists, social scientists and zoologists.

The aims are to:

—exchange ideas with researchers from other disciplines;

—highlight the potential for new research directions;

—stimulate the development of interdisciplinary projects;

—strengthen networking between departments and with NGOs;

—identify core areas of expertise for the focus of future events, both within the University and beyond.

The themes of the day are: understanding the African environment; where next for wildlife management?; poverty as a multi-dimensional problem; land degradation in context.

African Environments Day is open to all, and will be of interest to anyone involved in research in Africa. A registration form and further details may be obtained from Lindsey Gillson (e-mail: lindsey.gillson@eci.ox.ac.uk).

Researching Africa Day

This event, an opportunity to discuss research strategies and their practice in relation to the African continent, will be held on Tuesday, 18 June. The day will provide a forum for meeting fellow researchers, exchanging information and experience, and discussing practical and theoretical issues. Brief papers, of about ten to fifteen minutes, will be delivered by postgraduates who have recently engaged in research in Africa. The presentations will be followed by lively discussion of the material.

It is hoped that the day can assist those planning their research with answers to some of the questions they may have regarding fieldwork methods, logistics and other practical and theoretical issues. For those presenting, the day provides an opportunity to share their experiences and to participate in discussion of how the contingency of their particular experience may have affected their data.

The day is a multidisciplinary venture and it is hoped that participants will include historians, geographers, anthropologists, archaeologists, and scientists. It will be especially useful to postgraduate researchers.

Further details may be obtained from Christopher Low (e-mail: christopher.low@christ-church.ox.ac.uk).
