Ethnographers' Gathering (4)

A Conversation with Tim Ingold

2:00-3:30pm on Wednesday, 6 May 2015
Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh Campus

The fourth in our series of Ethnographers' Gatherings will take place in May. This event will also launch the IRC's new series of annual "research conversations".

Taking place once a year, these conversations between one of our research leaders and a key thinker in their respective field will explore topics of mutual interest, with particular focus on theory and method.

The 'conversants' will discuss a topic, or set of topics, for some 30-40 minutes, followed by time for questions from the audience, which are based on readings selected by the 'conversants' and distributed in advance. The event will conclude informally over a glass of wine.

For the first session on Wednesday, 6 May 2015, our guest will be Prof. Tim Ingold, University of Aberdeen, who will be talking to the IRC's Prof. Ullrich Kockel. Their topic will be "Ethnography".

Prof. Ingold's critical and outspoken stance on ethnography and its relationship with anthropology is well known, and this is an excellent opportunity to engage in that debate.

Attendance is free but places are limited. Please register here.

For further details, please contact Prof. Ullrich Kockel.
