This course has several interlinking goals. First, to read a full ethnography. This term (II) it will be Nitzan Shoshan’s The Management of Hate: Nation, Affect, and the Governance of Right-Wing Extremism in Germany. Second, to do an ethnographically grounded research project in contemporary Berlin. Third, to knit that research – in writing – into a strong data driven argument. Attention will thus be paid to anthropological research methods, ethnographic writing as a scholarly genre, and to the city as lively, deeply historical place. The language of instruction will be English. Ethnographies of Berlin I is not a prerequisite.
