Our monthly colloquium resumes this September. See our dates below! These regular meetings are intended to facilitate discussion and exchange within the group. They will provide a forum to present and discuss work in progress and will be occasionally dedicated to organisational matters, such as plans for our DFG-Network „Anthropology and China(s): Co-constructions of Ethnographic and Academic Regions“ (2021–2024).
The colloquium is informal and open to interested participants. It is held every third Friday of the month, from 12:30 to 13:30 pm (CET). To register and obtain the online link, please contact Jelena Große-Bley (grosseje [at] hu-berlin.de). Please also get in touch if you are interested in presenting at the still open spot in February!
