Show Summary Details


As the Nubian Ethnological Survey (NES) came to an end, other processes continued: research follow-up with the now-resettled Nubians by team members and by others, the publication of results from the survey, the choice of projects for further study by the participants developing their careers, and, inevitably, the evaluation of the activity. This chapter examines these activities. The task of leading this more comprehensive longitudinal follow-up study fell to Hussein Fahim, who had earned a master's degree from AUC and a PhD in anthropology from the University of California at Berkeley. One of Fahim's main goals was to bring social science to bear on Egyptian development, rather than to seek to situate the Nubian experience in a contemporary theoretical context.
