Wenner-Gren is welcoming letters of intent for webinars focusing on the future of anthropological research. We particularly welcome proposals from pairs of scholars, one established and the other an advanced graduate student or recent PhD in the early stages of their career. Webinars can focus on methodological, ethical, or conceptual aspects of anthropological research in these times of upheaval and change. We will consider letters of intent on a rolling basis, until our budget for this program is depleted, and provide funding for up to $5,000, which we expect organizers to use to cover technical costs.
Your letter of intent should be roughly four single-spaced pages long and include a discussion of the theme or problem you plan to address, your proposed format and the speakers you intend to recruit, the skills or insights you hope your webinar will cultivate, and your plans for reaching the most inclusive audience possible with a stake in what you will discuss. Where applicable, you may also include a bibliography of relevant work. Please address your inquiries and proposals to Laurie Obbink at firstname.lastname@example.org and Danilyn Rutherford at email@example.com.
