Current societal challenges have raised new questions about the public role of social and cultural anthropology: Topics such as displacement and migration, climate change and the rise of populist movements are just as much in the focus of the discipline as health crises or postcolonial inequalities. In the scientific network „Public Anthropology: Knowledge Practices and Social Interventions of the Ethnological Disciplines“, twenty scholars from European and non-European Social and Cultural Anthropology cooperate on various aspects of public-oriented research and teaching.  In addition, the network, which has been funded by the German Research Foundation since the beginning of 2022, strives to develop perspectives for closer long-term cooperations between the two anthropological disciplines in Germany.
