The Tribal Society of India,
I would like to participate in the Sixth Biennial Conference on Anthropology to be held at Rachi in February 2010.
The details of my paper are :
Title : Changing Marriage Customs of Wangoo Tribe in the Ivory Coast
Summary of Papers : This paper addresses itself to changes taking place in the marriage customs of one of the ancient tribes of west Africa- the Wangoos. Wangoos have been polygamous through the past 2 centureis, but social, economic and cultural changes brought about by westernization are turning most of them into monogamous people. The paper takes up a case study of one tribal family whose genealogical tree is available and which clearly depicts the gradual change through four generations. The paper is supported by coloured slides and a video recording of the Wangoo family of the case study.
I hope your paper selection committee will consider my paper worth presenting and I shall get an opportunity to interact with other experts in the field.
Kindly inform me of arrival and venue directions. Also, kindly send me your acceptance so that I may apply for travel funds from my government.
