TRANSFORMATIONS: A new voice on culture, politics and change.
A group of members of our doctoral program have developed a collaborative blog on anthropology dealing with anthropological topics, questions, and methods for a wider audience. It aims to bridge the gap between anthropology and the public sphere.
TRANSFORMATIONS is a medium through which dedicated and critical anthropologists put their thoughts, experiences and research insights up for discussion using a full range of digital opportunities including text, images, audio and video.
Scholars connect their research with themes of a broad public relevance, while also making the personal and often emotional act of research in social and cultural anthropology accessible to a wider audience. The blog’s authors aim for a creative, rich and accessible style of writing that is easy to understand, so that they can put people and their life-stories into the spotlight.
The program's alumni Miriam Gutekunst, Angela Firmhofer, Andreas Hackl, Daniel Kunzelmann, and Seraina Mueller are part of its editorial team.
