8th Biennial Conference of the European Society for Oceanists (ESFO)
July 5-8, 2010
University of St Andrews Centre for Pacific Studies, Scotland

The University of St Andrews Centre for Pacific Studies hosts the 8th Conference of the European Society for Oceanists to explore the theme of Exchanging Knowledge in Oceania. In the setting of the medieval college town of St Andrews, 50 miles from Edinburgh, - also known as “the home of the game of golf” - delegates will examine what kinds of knowledge transfers between bodies of knowledge are currently going on in Oceania, and what kinds of emergent relations are being formed.

This will be the first time that the UK has hosted the event. ESfO is the premier European venue for Oceania / Pacific research, attracting c.300 delegates worldwide. A link to our conference website will be in place soon.
