The Queer Anthro Interstice: Winter 2022


Winter Semester 2022/23


Organizing Team: Omar Kasmani, Henrike Kraul, 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” continues 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.
