Paul Sillitoe (Durham University) will give the first in a series of occasional lectures organised by the Pacific Islands Research Network (PIRN) at the Institute on 4 October.

Prof Sillitoe has a background in both anthropology and agricultural science. His research interests focus on tropical farming systems and indigenous natural resource management strategies. He specialises in development and social change, subsistence and technology, land issues, human ecology and ethno-science, with regional interests focusing on the Pacific.

The occasional lectures are free to attend and registration is not required.
