Off The Beaten Track field school for (socio-cultural) anthropologists and social scientists. This is a three week program on Gozo (the sister islet of Malta in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea) that is open to budding social scientists, both undergraduate and graduate level and starting PhD students are also welcome. All info on this project can be found on: www.anthropologyfieldschool.org.

The anthropological workshop ‘Traditions of Beekeeping on Gozo’. A week long research project, embedded in our field school. The objective of this project is to explore opportunities of cross-disciplinary research methods in order to build a body of
knowledge on apiculture founded in the social sciences. Secondly, the network built through this workshop will start similar projects worldwide that conglomerate in a new peer reviewed journal series (starting in 2015).

The Malta Drywall Story, an architectural anthropology workshop that can be combined with the Off The Beaten Track field school, turning it in to a five week program. The project is built upon the life-work of Prof. Dr. Borut Juvanec (who will also be
supervising the project) on stone shelter contructions all over the world. Next to the more obvious goals of this workshop, the aim is to integrate architectural research techniques and analyses in ethnographical work. We have been exploring and developping
these methods over the past few years, now we have come to the point where they can be disseminated and integrated in courses.
