This anthropologically inflected course is interdisciplinary in nature. The aim of the course is to explore and critically analyze certain aspects of Berlin’s museological landscape using anthropological methods. This will be realized during the various field trips to relevant sites. The focus is on two particularly visible and conflict-ridden aspects of this landscape, namely the Jewish narrative and the topic of migration. Although this course is based in social/cultural anthropology, it does engage with other disciplines and might be of interest to students of history, theology, art history, not to mention the more theme-based programs of Urban Studies, Ethics, and Museum Studies. 

All the lectures will be in English. German is not required for this course, but a would be an asset as it would allow for indepth exploration of key issues.
