Successful ESfO conference 2012

The first 20 years of the European Society for Oceanists was held in Bergen over 4 intensive and exciting days. The GenPent project welcomed its new postdoctoral scholars, Ruy and Michelle, to Bergen for the first time and used the opportunity to discuss the future plans for the project. Annelin chaired a successful session entitled “The Gendered Power of the Church in Melanesia” and the project team participated in other sessions, with many prominent scholars present to share in ideas and make for a stimulating and productive week.

Special mention must go to the Bergen Pacific Studies research group who were instrumental in organizing such a rich event, described by all as “the most successful ESfO to date”.
