Prix Ariane Deluz - Aide au terrain

Created in 2014 by the Ariane Deluz estate and managed by the FMSH, the Ariane Deluz Prize is awarded annually to a research project by a doctoral student in France who is preparing a thesis on the ethnology of sub-Saharan Africa. The prize allows the winner to carry out fieldwork in the main fields of ethnology (kinship, religion, arts and techniques, politics, etc.). According to the wish of the donor, the Franco-Swiss anthropologist Ariane Deluz, this prize will contribute to the development of ethnological work by future generations of Africa specialists.

The Ariane Deluz Prize is intended for doctoral students of any nationality who are preparing a thesis in the ethnology of sub-Saharan Africa in a French institution of higher education (alone or in joint tutorship). Young Africa specialists at the beginning of their theses are encouraged to apply.

The prize is worth 5,000€ and provides additional resources to the beneficiary by contributing to their travel and/or stay in the field.

The beneficiary undertakes to mention the FMSH's financial support in any written or oral communication (thesis, publications, participation in conferences, etc.).

The jury of the Ariane Deluz Prize is composed of:

  • Doris BONNET, President, IRD / Centre Population & Développement
  • Marianne LEMAIRE, Institute of African Worlds
  • Laurent GABAIL, University of Toulouse
  • Eric JOLLY, Institute of African Worlds
  • Jean-Pierre DOZON, IRD

Ariane Deluz

Ariane Deluz (1931-2010) began her career as an ethnologist under the successive directorships of Georges Balandier and Claude Lévi-Strauss at École Pratique des Hautes Études VI, which became EHESS (1955-1964) and the CNRS (1964-1997). She carried out numerous studies in West Africa and South America. Ariane Deluz was one of the pioneers of women's studies, but she has also worked on the fields of kinship, historical and family memory, and the rituals that mark the life cycle. She taught at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva (1983-1991). She was also Secretary General of the Society of Africanists (1990-1994) and President of the French Association of Anthropologists (1997-1999).
