Writing Retreat for the Network Reader

During the writing retreat at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology in Halle, network members and contributors to the planned network reader came together to discuss the content and format of the publication planned for 2025. In the form of plenary sessions and section discussions, they worked together on sharpening the content, identify cross-connections, and highlighting central topics of Public Anthropology in Germany against the background of the disciplinary histories and particularities of European Ethnology and Social and Cultural Anthropology.

The writing retreat was organized by Beate Binder (Institute for European Ethnology, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin), Hansjörg Dilger (Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology, Freie Universität Berlin), Sabine Hess (Institute for Cultural Anthropology/European Ethnology, Georg-August-Universität Göttingen), Thomas Kirsch (Department of History and Sociology, Chair of Anthropology and Cultural Anthropology, University of Konstanz) and Gisela Welz (Institute for Cultural Anthropology and European Ethnology, Goethe University Frankfurt am Main) in cooperation with Ursula Rao (Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology Halle).
