Annual Transdisciplinary Winter School: Culture Psychology and Qualitative Research 2022

Annual Transdisciplinary Winter School Culture, Psychology, and Qualitative Research 2022

Topic 2022:Collaborative Ethnographies: Researching Affect and Emotion

This two-day Winter School provides an introduction to ethnography in the context of affect and emotion research. It focusses on (emerging) practices of collaborative fieldwork and scrutinizes its potential to advance decolonial practices of knowledge construction.

The Winter School is located broadly in the field of Psychological Anthropology, Cultural Psychology, and Affect Studies and invites PhD/doctoral and postdoctoral students to discuss their collaborative methods in the context of fieldwork and ethnography. The winter School consists of four key note lectures, practical data sessions and individual consultations with the key note speakers and invited guests. We provide the participants with theoretical background knowledge in an online-platform as well as in-house examples of first hands-on practice . A general knowledge of qualitative research, ethnography, mixed methods, comparative, or collaborative methods will be helpful but is not required.

More information on application/registration, venue and schedule will be published in June 2022.
