The Queer Anthro Interstice: Winter 2021

Winter Semester 2021/22

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

Still caught in the pandemic, the German Anthropological Association’s Working Group “Gender & Sexualities | Queer Anthropology” announces the continuation of its Queer Anthro Interstice, a monthly online 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 of the challenges that we face in these interstitial times.
