Institute's Colloquium:

MODES OF RELATING: Methodologies in/for a Contemporary Anthropology

6:15 pm / Institut für Europäische Ethnologie, Room 311, Mohrenstraße 40/41, 10117 Berlin

The summer semester’s Institutskolloquium at the Department of European Ethnology attends to methodologies in and for a contemporary anthropology. While “modes of relating” may have always been central for anthropological research – we might think about classic kinship analyses, the gift, or the Melanesian ‘dividual’ –, we would like to ask how emergent phenomena of the contemporary ask for specific forms of relating. What methodologies have been developed in such an anthropology concerned with ‘the contemporary’, and which ones are emerging?
