The Institute for Ethnology at the Protestant Kirchentag 2019

At the Protestant Church Congress in Dortmund on 22.06.2019 the two sports ethnologists Dr. and Robin Wulfinghoff as well as students of the Institute of Ethnology of the University of Münster headed the station "Ethnosport". Numerous visitors were able to actively try out the two traditional sports "Kho Kho" (catch game from India) and "Manchu Pearl Ball" (ball game from Manchuria/China) and at the same time learn interesting information about their socio-cultural background.

In addition, the ethnological-didactic concept of ethnosport was presented in a workshop, how sport can be used to impart knowledge about foreign cultures. Pictures can be found here!
