Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The seminar addresses PhD students with a research project at the intersecition of the family/kinship and the state. The conceptual split and separation between kinship and the state is one of the central tenets of Western self-understanding and has enormous consequences for research, international relations, development policies, as well as colonial and modern military practices. In the seminar we will jointly start to rethink the epistemological foundations of family and kinship in the social sciences and policy- making institutions. We begin with some basic text on the making and unmaking of categories and their travelling to other social and geographical realms before we read texts from different disciplines concerning the topic. Phd-students will have the opportunity to discuss their research.
