We are pleased to announce the 2016 Pre-Congress Workshop for Emerging Ethnobiologists: “Three-eyed seeing: exploring methods and theories for improved research in ethnobiology.” The workshop plans to incorporate participatory video training with discussions on ISE’s Code of Ethics, methods and tools for better ethnobiological research, as well as the role of the researcher in working with Indigenous groups. For more details on the workshop themes and goals, please see this description. We anticipate releasing a Call for Applications in early 2016.

The organizing committee is seeking mentors who can share their professional experience working in the field of ethnobiology and are knowledgable about research methods that contribute to ethical and reciprocal work with Indigenous groups. Please find the Call for Mentors here. It is important to note that we are looking to draw from those in our community who are already planning on attending the ISE Congress in Uganda; while we plan to cover in-country expenses for mentors during the workshop, we are unable to offer any other funding for their travel. 
Feel free to pass this information along to anyone you think may be interested. Thank you for your interest and support!
