Busy and interdisciplinary in the Afar: the AGXIM Project

TERRAIN / FIELDWORK

The AGXIM* Project

First Awsa Geology-Humanities Interdisciplinary Mission

February 11-24, 2018

By Cécile Doubre, Eloi Ficquet & Lamya Khalidi

* Afar for ‘to be busy’, pronounced agdhim

Introduction to being busy

The first field mission of the AGXIM project took place between February 11th and 24th, 2018. This project directed by Cécile Doubre (IPGS, Strasbourg) and Eloi Ficquet (EHESS, Paris) aims to document human adaptation in the Awsa and Tendaho Basin (Lower Awash valley, Afar). Together with Ethiopian collaborators from Addis Ababa University, Mekele University, the ARCCH and the Afar Bureau of Culture and Tourism, the interdisciplinary team brings together specialists from the Earth Sciences and the Humanities who had previously been working independently in the Afar region for the last decade or more.
