Workshop

"The Next Generation? ‘Younger’ Social Anthropology of Migration in the German-speaking world"

Date: 30.11.09 – 02.12.09

Venue: MPI zur Erforschung multireligiöser und multiethnischer Gesellschaften, Göttingen

Organisation: Heike Drotbohm (University of Freiburg) and Boris Nieswand (MPI MMG)


The last ten years witnessed a significant increase in anthropological studies on migration in the German speaking countries, which can be related to different approaches, political challenges, scientific traditions and discursive fields.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together representatives of this migration research in order to discuss recent trends and to identify common interests. This workshop shall not be understood as a classical conference but rather serves as a ‘think tank’ in which empirical approaches as well as recent theoretical and methodological developments will be identified and discussed.
