The network began operating from 2000 in Edinburgh after a founding meeting in 1999 in Lathi. Geoff Troman, Bob Jeffrey and Francesca Gobbo initiated this meeting in conjunction with members of the then newly founded Nordic (nordforsk research network: ethnoped). Bob Jeffrey wrote the proposal that was presented to the Council and accepted later that year. Full details of the network history have been submitted to the network history archives being assembled by Martin Lawn. The aims and focus of the network have changed only slightly since being originally conceived. We have broadened slightly to include life-history research for example and there has been some clarification of our specific understanding of ethnography.
