Research Seminars & Workshops Fall 2015

Fieldwork relations, conspiracy culture, the impact of dreams, cruelty, ethnographic data, and political actions. This new series of Research Seminars offers an interesting mix of seminars and workshops with insights in the field of anthropology and social sciences.

Seminars and Workshops

This fall we offer a new format of Research Seminars. Next to the four traditional seminars of national and international scholars, we offer two workshops by staff members of the institute.

In these workshops we will give practical insights and participants will work on and discuss the subjects of producing knowledge through fieldwork relations, ethnographic data, and the management of ethics.

Monday 7 September: NO SYSTEM, NO POLITICS?

Our fall series will kick off in September with a seminar organised in cooperation with the African Studies Centre. On Monday 7 September Dr. Antonádia Borges (University of Brasilia) will discuss the political actions in South Africa and the colonial approach of many social scientists towards this protest in the seminar ‘NO SYSTEM, NO POLITICS? Iconoclastic disruptions in contemporary South Africa and their theoretical misrecognition’.

More information and overview

The research seminars and workshops are given in English and are open for everyone. Each seminar and workshop will be followed by drinks in the Bamboo Lounge at the third floor of the Pieter de la Court building. For more information on the specific seminars and speakers or previous seminars, see CA-DS Research Seminars.
