Prof. Eben Kirksey, best known for his work related to multispecies ethnography, and Prof. Alice Hughe, an expert on cave ecology and bats, will be leading this short field course in Thailand.


This field school is open to any graduate student who is broadly interested in multispecies ethnography or bat ecology and evolution.  Exceptional undergraduate students may also apply.


£1,500 (GBP).  This will cover local ground transportation, food, and accommodation during the field course.  Students will also be responsible for their own international travel to Bangkok as well as minor incidental expenses during the course.

We may be in a position to offer scholarships to students who show high merit but who can otherwise not afford to attend this course. These scholarships will only cover course fees, and students will still be responsible for travel to Bangkok.
