Accepting applications for the 2nd Summer Institute for Cross-Cultural Anthropological Research

The National Science Foundation, in a grant to the Human Relations Area Files (BCS #2020156), is supporting three years of Summer Institutes for Cross-Cultural Anthropological Research. These Summer Institutes will train faculty, researchers, and advanced graduate students in the theory and state-of-the art methods for conducting regional and worldwide comparative research. The aim is for these methods to be incorporated into educational courses and cross-cultural research using anthropological data. The second three-week Summer Institute will hopefully be in-person in New Haven, Connecticut, USA (July 18 to August 5, 2022). The program will include lectures, discussion, hands-on exercises and each participant will design and execute a pilot project during their time at an institute.  The primary instructors are Carol R. Ember (Human Relations Area Files at Yale University, USA), Fiona Jordan (University of Bristol, UK) and Séan Roberts (Cardiff University, UK). Tentatively, additional lectures will be delivered by Damian Blasi, Alexandra Brewis Slade, Joshua Conrad Jackson, Jeremy Koster, Eleanor Power, and Amber Wutich.
