Winter School in Urban Anthropology

The winter school in Urban Anthropology is a specialized training in social science research, developed in collaboration with different institutional partners, scholars, artists and curators working on colonial archives, collections and memories


The first edition was held in Istanbul, at the French Institute of Anatolian Studies (IFEA) (June-July 2016), the current edition is being held in Cape Town (July - August 2017) and the third one is planned for Cotonou and Porto-Novo (2018).

With French and Romanian convenors, supported by IFAS-Research and hosted by Iziko Museum in Cape Town, this edition welcomes 14 participants and 15 speakers from Southern African (Mauritius, Zimbabwe, South Africa), America (USA) and Europe (Romania, Germany, Switzerland, France).

The winter school will conclude with the presentation of the research results in a form to be chosen by the students: an oral presentation, a scientific poster, a photo / multimedia exhibition, a documentary film project or a happening in a musuem / artist’s studio. Feel free to come (if in Cape Town) on August 9th for this presentation!
