Welcome to Bergen Anthropology Day

Bergen Anthropology Day is an annual event organized by CMI and the University of Bergen. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone interested in social anthropology to meet students, academics and researchers studying and working in the field. Every year the audience gets to hear more about research projects, the different anthropological milieus in Bergen and ongoing international collaboration.

Among the researchers you will meet and the research projects you will hear more about this year are CMI's Edyta Roszko who will present her project on Chinese and Vietnamese fishers expanding beyond the South China Sea, and Antonio De Lauri who will present his project on principles, diplomacy and compromise in humanitarian aid. 

This year's event takes place on September 13, in Tivoli at Det Akademiske Kvarter. Refreshments will be served.
