Engaging the world anthropologically


Oplysninger om arrangementet


Fredag 17. maj 2024,  kl. 13:15 - 17:00


Room D170, DPU

This seminar addresses the question of how paying attention - anthropologically – fashions and focuses our engagement with the world.  We invite all participants to join in a conversation between senior scholars from Denmark, USA and Canada and former and present students of educational anthropology who have engaged with the work of these scholars. The aim is to promote dialogue and the conversation is open to all interested.
