Dear colleagues,

We are happy to invite PhD students who work at the intersection of anthropology, psychology, and the humanities to apply for the Annual Transdisciplinary Winter School: Culture, Psychology, and Qualitative Research with this year's focus theme on:

The 2022 winter school is hosted by Thomas Stodulka (FU Berlin), Ferdiansyah Thajib (Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nürnberg), and Katja Liebal (University of Leipzig) and is supported by the CRC 1171 Affective Societies (FU Berlin) and the Leipzig Lab (University of Leipzig).

This two-day online Winter School provides an introduction to ethnography in the context of affect and emotion research. It focusses on 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/Emotion 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. We provide the participants with theoretical background knowledge in an online-platform as well as examples of first hands-on practice. A general knowledge of qualitative research, ethnography, mixed methods, comparative, or collaborative methods will be helpful.

Please send your application packages, which should contain a short motivation letter, curriculum vitae including a list of symposia attended and publications (if any), and an abstract of your PhD research project (max. 300 words), in one pdf document no later than November 4, 2022 to Maximilian Leipold (m.leipold@fu-berlin.de).

We are looking forward for your applications and your participation.

Thomas Stodulka & Maximilian Leipold
