Our aim under this joint project is to organize annual workshops where researchers can develop common research and cooperate in publishing articles. Students at the indigenous master programme will also be active participants at these workshops and conferences as a part of their academic training. Each conference and the papers presented can be regarded as achieving the objectives stated in the previous section.
The topics of the conferences and workshops are meant to represent a progression: The first will feature a discourse on some basic perspectives; the second will be devoted to the historical and mythical background, while the last will sum up our results and settle upon a plan for future cooperation.
