19 lipca 2019 | Agata Stanisz

Zapraszamy nasze studentki i naszych studentów do udziału w warsztacie migracyjnym, który odbędzie się 1 września 2019 w godzinach około-południowych w Instytucie Etnologii i Antropologii Kulturowej UAM. Warsztat będzie trwał 2 godziny (4 sesje po 30 minut).

Structure & Design

Conceived as an interdisciplinary and comparative learning experience,  the Session I and II of this workshop offer an interactive and communicative module on the challenges of fieldwork and research among migrant communities with contested identities and existence cum livelihood packages. The workshop, which juxtaposes the techniques of Anthropology and Criminology with that of critical Media Studies, envisages a brainstorming component in its Session III and IV that strives to take into account the insights as well as lived ‘anthropological moments’ of the participants.  

Thematic outline

  • Comparing the data collection approaches among migrant communities across disciplines
  • Challenges of ‘fieldwork’: Anecdotal examples of Rohingya Muslims and Kashmiri Pandits in India as well as North & East Africans in South Africa

Session plan

  • Session 1: a 30-minute input on the  Rohingya and Kashmiri Pandits
