Notes

Abstract:
These Apatani women are transplanting paddy seedlings in rows in the regular plots : Paddy plots are owned by families, who tend them throughout the year, although some of the labour is done by groups : Many of these groups are informal, voluntary arrangements between eight to ten people, mostly women, who work in each other’s fields on a rotating basis : today, we rarely see men working in the paddy fields in this traditional arrangement : Increasingly, groups consist of young men who work for wages during the heavy periods of the agricultural season in the summer months : a few individual men and women, of all ages, also do paid labour throughout the year.

General Note:
Christoph von Fürer-Haimendorf (1909-1995) was born and educated in Vienna, gaining a PhD in anthropology from the University of Vienna in 1931. A grant from the Rockefeller Foundation enabled him to study at the London School of Economics, under the anthropologist Bronislaw Malinowski. In 1936, he went to the Naga Hills in northeast India for his first fieldwork; over the next four decades, he worked extensively in south & central India, northeast India and Nepal. In 1950 he was appointed Professor of Anthropology at SOAS, where he established the Department of Anthropology. During his career, he published seventeen books, most of them ethnographies of tribal cultures. He was President of the Royal Anthropological Institute (1975-77) and a pioneer in the field of visual anthropology.
