Studying and Teaching Anthropology in Times of COVID-19: Experiences and Best Practices | ABv & LaSSA Webinar #2

On Monday 17 May 2021 from 17:00 to 18:30 on Zoom | Please register below and you will receive a link to the meeting one day before the webinar.

The Antropologen Beroepsvereniging (ABv) (Dutch association of anthropologists) and Landelijke Samenwerking Studenten Antropologie (LaSSA) (Dutch network of anthropology students) jointly organize the webinar “ Studying and Teaching Anthropology in Times of COVID-19: Experiences and Best Practices“, the second episode in the ABv Webinar Series.

COVID-19 turned many aspects of university teaching and learning upside down. Dealing with the pandemic not only meant a switch to online teaching and learning, but also not being able to go abroad and conduct fieldwork. Students had to become creative in finding new ways of doing fieldwork – by adopting new (online) methodologies, engaging with new topics, and going to other places. Supervising and supporting students also changed, supervisors had to find out how to guide students through the insecurities that studying anthropology from a distance entailed.

In this webinar, which will have the character of a roundtable discussion, we discuss the practical (im)possibilities of teaching, learning and doing anthropology in times of a pandemic with two students, Käthe Ploeger (Utrecht University) and Nadia Hageman (Radboud Universiteit), Marie Louise Glebbeek (assistant professor, coordinator of Bachelor project at Utrecht University), and Yke Eijkemans (lecturer and tutor at Utrecht University). Rather than discussing the urgent questions about what this means for the future of anthropology and fieldwork, we will explore what we learned from doing anthropology during a pandemic in more practical ways: What are the possibilities and limitations of fieldwork during a pandemic? What are the consequences for the research participants that we have access to, and the claims that we can make? What are the best practices – that we should keep in post-pandemic times – of doing and supervising fieldwork in times of COVID-19? What are the logistical and practical issues students and supervisors run into, and how to deal with them? What did we learn about support systems and care for/among students?

With this roundtable discussion we hope to inspire students, lecturers, and educators to explore and engage in new ways of doing, learning and teaching anthropology.

Remote Ethnography: Doing Anthropology Digitally | ABv & LaSSA Webinar #1

The first webinar took place on Wednesday 20 January 2021. You can watch the recording here

The Antropologen Beroepsvereniging (ABv) (Dutch association of anthropologists) and Landelijke Samenwerking Studenten Antropologie (LaSSA) (Dutch network of anthropology students) jointly organized the webinar “Remote Ethnography: Doing Anthropology Digitally”, the first episode in the ABv Webinar Series.

The corona pandemic has changed anthropological fieldwork in many ways in the short term and possibly also in the times to come. How to conduct remote ethnography? How to do participant observation online? What are tips and tricks for gaining access to a digital field? In this webinar we explore these questions (and many more) with a panel of three experts on digital and remote ethnography: Elisabetta Costa (University of Groningen), John Boy (Leiden University) and Sonja Marzi (London School of Economics). Moderators: Elisabet Rasch (Wageningen University and Research, Abv chair) and Nikkie Wiegink (Utrecht University).
