GARD is a new research group at New Europe College focusing on contemporary anthropological research and theories and their larger relevance within the humanities and social sciences. Building on the continuous support for anthropology during NEC’s existence through fellowships, workshops and conferences, this research group aims at offering a space for exchanges, debates, projects of anthropological relevance for all scholars interested in anthropological research on/in Romania and beyond. Benefiting from the multidisciplinary and international profile of NEC, inter-disciplinary exchange between anthropologists and other social scientists is strongly encouraged and anticipated.
The group meets monthly, under a variety of formats including public talks, discussion of pre-circulated papers, film screenings, debates, and roundtable exchanges on newly published relevant books. While the group’s range of topics and themes of interest is programmatically left as open as possible, further thematic and topical threads of discussion and research are expected to emerge during the first year of the group’s existence.
