discussions and develop new ideas in an informal setting.

Time: 17:15 to 19:00, followed by dinner
Venue: Centre for African Studies Basel, Petersgraben 11, room 205

6pm - 7pm Workshop: Transformations in the Extractive Industries
as a Field for Interdisciplinary Research
At the Centre for African Studies a number of scholars conduct research
related to the extractive industries. In our workshop three of them will
present their activities in order to initiate a dialogue that might lead
us to a larger joint research project. Prof Jürg Utzinger, director of
the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute and Mirko Winkler, PhD,
researcher in Environmental Epidemiology at the same institute are
involved in health impact assessment of large infrastructure development
projects in the extractive industries. Rita Kesselring, PhD, researcher
and senior lecturer at the Institute of Social Anthropology will report on
her SNF-funded research project on Urbanisation in the new and old
Copperbelt in Zambia.
