ANNUAL TRANSDISCIPLINARY WINTER SCHOOL CULTURE, PSYCHOLOGY, AND QUALITATIVE RESEARCH
This two-day Winter School provides an introduction to ethnography in the context of affect and emotion research. It focusses on (emerging) practices of collaborative fieldwork and scrutinizes its potential to advance decolonial practices of knowledge construction.
The Winter School is located broadly in the field of Psychological Anthropology, Cultural Psychology, and Affect Studies and invites PhD/doctoral students to discuss their collaborative methods in the context of fieldwork and ethnography. The Winter School consists of four key note lectures, practical data sessions and individual consultations with the key note speakers and invited guests. We provide the participants with theoretical background knowledge in an online-platform as well as examples of first hands-on practice during the working groups. A general knowledge of qualitative research, ethnography, mixed methods, comparative, or collaborative methods will be helpful but is not required.
The Winter School is part of an institutional collaboration between the working groups of Thomas Stodulka (FU Berlin), Meike Watzlawik (SFU Berlin), Dominik Mihalits (SFU Vienna), and Carolin Demuth (Aalborg University) that intends to establish long-term collaboration between psychology, anthropology, and the humanities. The first conference of the rotating system was held in Aalborg in 2021, and the next winter schools will take place at SFU Vienna (2023) and SFU Berlin (2024).
The 2022 event is organized by Thomas Stodulka and Maximilian Leipold (FU Berlin), Ferdiansyah Thajib (FAU Erlangen), and Katja Liebal (Universität Leipzig) and hosted by the CRC 1171 Affective Societies and the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology at FU Berlin, and the Leipzig Lab at Universität Leipzig.
This year we will welcome 4 key note speakers. On the first day there will be Daniel White (Cambridge, UK) and Brady Wagoner (Aalborg, DK) . On the second day we will be joined by Anni Kajanus (Helsiniki, FIN) and Andrew Hodges (Edinburgh, UK).
