Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The main aim of the course is to provide students with background knowledge and an overview on topics in preparation for the fieldwork course in Hungary in the summer term 2022. We will start with an overview on (post-) socialist developments and go on to read ethnographies on different aspects around the topic of local solidarities. We will touch upon topics of care, charity, identity, kinship, household economies, and of course, solidarity. It will be important to keep in mind the ambivalences of solidarity practices as sites of constructing national belonging and means to justify exclusion. Reading ethnographies from both, the wider region but also elsewhere will provide the students with a solid basis to develop their topics of research for either the next term and/or their MA thesis.
