The aim of the workshop “Identifying (new) topics in Fijian Studies” is to bring together a number of anthropologists and scholars from closely related fields who conduct research in the Fiji Islands. After short presentations and discussions which will outline the research projects of the participants, we aim to stimulate dialogue about future research trends and to explore possibilities of collaboration in the field of Fijian ethnography.
