    PhD Course: Environmental History and Identity

    Environmental dimensions of cultural beliefs and practices have become an important topic of research and inquiry over the past few decades, and have influenced our understanding of identity and society around the world. This has resulted in a growing appreciation that identity construction and behaviour is situated in the surrounding landscape, and much of this is linked to the development of Environmental History.

    PhD course: Place in the Global South

    In recent decades, with increased scholarly attention to globalization and human mobility, place, both as a topic of investigation and as a conceptual framework, has gained a notable interest within the humanities and social sciences. People produce places by inscribing them with diverse content and meaning; emotions, historical and mythological events, political or religious ideologies. However, cultural, political, and development interventions embedded in certain power relations also produce places. Framed around two subthemes, this PhD seminar aims to examine how everyday practices, political processes and power relations produce places in the Global South. This seminar aims to bring together PhD students from various disciplines working on related themes.
    Keynote speakers: Ursula Rao, professor, Institute of Anthropology, Leipzig University & John Gledhill, professor, School of Social Sciences, University of Manchester. » Læs mere
