Samburu Milk project: latest research visit

Stella-Samburu-2016In the summer of 2016, William Rubel visited the Research Station to continue work with local colleagues on the Samburu Milk project, focusing in particular on the Northern Maa dictionary of milk-related terms, a major research output from the last 5 years of research visits, and a key work-in progress. He was joined by his daughter Stella, a junior researcher-in-training, who provided valuable information gathering, interviewing and documentation support. Also joining the research group was Thor Lehman, a Masters student in the Anthropology department (Masters Anthropology of Food) at SOAS (the School of Oriental & African Studies), University of London, conducting on-the-ground research for his Masters thesis on the food of the Samburu.
