"Teaching Historical-Ethnological / Anthropological Approaches to the Past"

Conference of the SIEF (Societé Internationale d'Ethnologie et de Folklore) Working Group "Historical
Approaches in Cultural Analysis"

Date and place: 22-24 November 2012, Göttingen, Germany

Deadline call for papers: 15 March 2012

How do we teach our students the study of everyday life in the past? Which methods and approaches in historical analysis are important for a solid historical orientation, and how do we communicate them to students? The workshop Teaching Historical-Ethnological Approaches invites international researchers from a variety of disciplines including Cultural Anthropology, Ethnology, Folklore Studies, History, and Cultural Geography to present their approaches toward teaching the study of everyday life in the past. We call for presentations that propose useful ways of teaching and solutions for methodological problems and/or raise theoretical and practical questions in generating curricula. The workshop will bring together different teaching cultures and traditions and discuss the application of teaching methods in a variety of fields like palaeography, heuristics, hermeneutics, so called fieldwork in archives, and oral history.

Paper proposals should include a working title and an abstract of not more than 150 words. They should reach me ultimately at by 15 March 2012.
