Panel at IUAES: Living off and with Heritage on the Coast
Nataša Rogelja, Martina Bofulin (both ZRC SAZU) and Nicolas Bautes (French Institute Pondicherry) have convened a panel “The Tides of Change: Living off and with Heritage on the Coast” at the biannual virtual conference of IUAES (International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences) that addressed the role of heritagization amid coastal transformations. Initially, researchers from UK, India and Japan submitted their papers, but due to Covid-19 measures and the inability of conducting fieldwork, a number of them withdraw from the panel. Four papers, resulting from the project FisherCoast (India – Europe science platform Equip) were presented at the end, highlighting the research methodology of »following the thing« by Ian Cook. The papers addressed the social life of selected fish species (farmed seabass and mullet in Slovenia, Bombay duck in the western coast of India and oil sardine in the eastern coast of India). Nataša Rogelja, Martina Bofulin and Primož Pipan presented a paper »Following mullet and seabass: Movement, stasis and borders in the North Adriatic«.
