The Queer Anthro Interstice: Winter 2020

The Queer Anthro Interstice: Sharing Work in Progress

Winter Semester 2020/2021

Organizing Team: Omar Kasmani, Anne Kukuczka, Claudia Liebelt, Ursula Probst, Max Schnepf

“Interstice” noun [usually plural]: a space between things or events: […] “They might have to operate in the interstices of institutional guidelines and testing mandates.”

The Cambridge Dictionary

The German Anthropological Association’s Working Group “Gender & Sexualities | Queer Anthropology” gladly announces The Queer Anthro Interstice, a monthly virtual meeting for all members and those committed to our cause. Rather than classical lectures, we encourage a collaborative and experimental exchange based on the idea of sharing: a sharing not only of research questions, designs and materials, but also the challenges that we face in these interstitial times.
