Biocultural heritage in Mozambique

The Forum for Africa Studies is involved in a joint programme in Archaeology and Anthropology entitled Biocultural Heritage in Mozambique: developing new heritage industries. It focuses on developing heritage industries combining biocultural heritage processes. The concept of biocultural heritage allows for new approches to heritage, nature conservation, lanscape planning, and development goals

Several PhDs in Archaeology will be trained as well as one Anthropologist. As part of Sweden-Mozambique bilateral research collaboration, the programme has recruited two PhD students and one postdoc (Hilario Madiquida). The Swedish coordinator is Dept. of Archaeology and Ancient History.
