EnMoTe - Environments, Mobilities, Technologies

EnMoTe stands for “Environments, Mobilities, Technologies”, which delineates a field of anthropological inquiry focusing on human-environmental relations, including built environments and infrastructures, as well as on the flows and movements of human and non-human beings, things, and ideas. Our research is focused on but not limited to 1) the circumpolar North and other remote “resource frontiers,” and 2) the former Soviet Union and other post-socialist areas. While our team consists primarily of social and cultural anthropologists, EnMoTe acknowledges the potential of collaborating with scholars from other social science disciplines, the humanities, arts and natural sciences. While many of the team members work closely with Prof. Schweitzer, the goal of EnMoTe is to provide a forum for debates about environments, mobilities and technologies within the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology and beyond.
