Congress of the International Society for Ethnology and Folklore

From 22-25 June 2015, members of the IRC participated in the congress of the International Society for Ethnology and Folklore (SIEF) in Zagreb. The theme for 2015 was “Utopias–Realities–Heritages”, and the IRC team contributed significantly to the debate, not just by the usual conference activities of presenting papers and chairing panels. Dr Kerstin Pfeiffer has been elected as secretary of the new SIEF Working Group on "Body, Emotions, and Senses", and Vitalija Stepušaitytė was selected to join the closing roundtable as an inspiring young researcher. A full report is available here.
