Wednesday Seminars

Lecture series of the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology

Wednesday 5 pm, HS C, IKSA, NIG, Universitätsstraße 7, 1010 Wien, 4th Floor

The Wednesday Seminars are the regular lecture series of the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology. Every Wednesday during the semester current research as well as controversial and relevant questions from within the discipline and the general public are picked out and examined in expert talks.
The lecture series is open to contributions from within the wider discipline of anthropology and beyond.
The talks serve as impulses for an intellectual exchange between the presenter and the audience.
The Wednesday Seminars are a forum that introduces our guests (guest professors and visiting scholars) and encourages resident researchers to present their current work to the scholarly community.
