simron_singhDr Simron Singh (ISE, Vienna) ‘Anthropological and ethnological research and documentation among the inhabitants of the Nicobar Islands, India’ (2009-10)

This project deals with the Nicobar Islands where I have worked since 1999. In December 2004 the islands were devastated by the tsunami that wiped out all material artifacts and the local economy. The fellowship allows me to put together my documentation on the Nicobarese culture as it was before the catastrophe and make it available to the Nicobarese community and the public.
