[ Call for Papers-Call for Applications ]

The University of Ioannina organises in collaboration with the Municipality of Konitsa, a "Summer School in Anthropology, Ethnography and Comparative Folklore of the Balkans" in the city of Konitsa from July 30th to August 12th 2006.
During the last decade the Balkans attracted the interest of an increasing number of social anthropologists. Recently published papers and monographs influenced both our understanding of the region as well as anthropological theory. The course discusses the origins of ethnographic accounts of the Balkans ("Western travelers and the understanding of the Balkans"), the interwar fieldwork projects in the region ("Fieldwork, ethnography and community studies"), the relationship between Mediterranean Anthropology and Balkan ethnographies, the postmodern perspectives of the Balkans ("Narratives and images: Balkanism and beyond") and the post-socialist anthropological analysis of the region. Teaching methods: lectures, film screening, seminars. The course will be taught in both English and Greek.

For any further questions and clarifications regarding the Konitsa Summer School contact the School's email address.
