    "Violence in the Field - Recognizing, naming, and transforming experiences of violence in research contexts"

    Aim of the workshop is to create an accountability space for reflection where social anthropologists and artists of all academic hierarchical levels, with diverse backgrounds, can reflect on their experiences of violence.

    We intend to work with participants' personal experiences and examples.

    Performative and theatrical methods and exercises facilitate the direct involvement of bodies, emotions, and embodiment in the work and discussion processes.

    You can find more information about the workshop in the flyer.

    The workshop is organised by the Owdnegrin Performance Collective, Dr Julia Koch Tshirangwana and Dr Annika Strauss.
    The workshop can be credited as (research) internship. Also, amodule completion thesis can be prepared within the framework of the workshop.
