Vienna Working Papers in Ethnography (VWPE)

The VWPE is a peer reviewed series which aims at presenting and reflecting on innovative research. The series provides the staff of the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology as well as guest authors with a forum for discussing their findings on a wide range of social phenomena. We welcome submissions that seek to advance conceptual-methodological and theoretical debates as well as manuscripts based on ongoing empirical research.
