Different ways of knowing the weather in Namibia
Indigenous and scientific ways of knowing the weather are often based on different ontologies. The empirical aim of the proposed project is, firstly, to describe theses ways of knowing and their ontological assumptions ethnographically and, secondly, to explore what happens if they intertwine. The overall theoretical aim is to contribute to understand how partly contradicting knowledge systems combine and which theoretical models are suitable for describing those dynamics.
