The structure of the field-school is one of open-ended pursuit of ethnographic study. Your days can then be spent either in the thick of it (chasing interviews, meetings, consultations with your supervisor) or for those students that require more direction; hour long lunch classes are offered to place some structure around research by discussing broad anthropological themes (methodology, history and practice of Anthropology etc). Taking advantages of these midday classes might also be of use for anthropologists that are early on in their career. A panel of guest-lecturers from a variety of Universities will also offer additional lectures on broad themes relating to the culture of Gozo and Malta.
Early in the Field school, once you’ve been introduced to the staff and your fellow anthropologists, you will be introduced to the local libraries. After that you should have all the resources you need at your disposal to pursue individually tailored research objectives with the assistance of your assigned supervisor.
At the end of the course, participants will receive a certificate of participation that will summarise their course performance. Participants that perform exceedingly well will receive a letter of recommendation that will help facilitate participation in other international anthropological research events. All research findings resulting from the summer school will be published
and professionally communicated.
The course is directed towards young anthropologists and cultural scientists; however, any individual who would like to learn about anthropological research and fieldwork is welcome. Previous knowledge or experience is not required. We aim for a very individual program that can start at any level. Even PhD. research (or pre-research) can be included and guided. The school has a strong socio-cultural focus, but any topic can be covered in the individual program of the student.
The project is limited to 15 participants.
