The digital lecture series "Decolonizing Anthropology. A Self-Critical Appraisal of the Current State of Research and Teaching" is a cooperation of the institutes of Social and Cultural Anthropology in Austria, Switzerland and Germany and will take place online via Webex. The lecture is aimed at students of all qualification levels (BA, MA students, PhD students) as well as researchers and teachers.

Students and teachers of anthropology are invited to reflect on the colonial past of their discipline, to discuss genealogies of anticolonial knowledge production, as well as to engage with current attempts at reappraisal and, in particular, to explore new forms of global cooperation.

In this lecture series, participating institutes curate projects, research, and experiences on this topic and test new forms of conversation and dialogue.
