Dr Taddesse Wolde and Dr Elizabeth Ewart of Oxford University will present new findings from the research that they are conducting on Enset (Ensete ventricosum; Abyssinian banana). This plant is uniquely domesticated in Ethiopia and sustains upwards of 20 million people in southern Ethiopia. It also feeds a sizeable animal population and is in turn nurtured by both animals and people. The talk will trace some of the relations of co-dependence and mutual sustenance that characterize enset within Ethiopian highland agricultural systems.

Speakers: Dr Taddesse Wolde (Oxford), Dr Elizabeth Ewart (Oxford)
