Conference organised under the auspices of CRASSH (University of Cambridge)
A Welcome Reception and a Little Light Work?
As a welcome to several visitors from Papua New Guinea and those attending the "Innovation, Creation and New Economic Forms" conference, this informal discussion and poster display will provide a forum for brief presentations on the changing bases for collaborative research, on the starts made by the PTC project & other initiatives in Melanesia, and on plans for future work.
Besides a chance to air some on-going work and to think through issues involved in contemporary research, the forum will discuss the directions that projects, partnerships and interchanges might take.
