Winter school 2014 and 'Sensoriality' module of the Swiss Graduate Program in Anthropology

Disability & Technology met for a second time this year - this time the Ugandan members travelled to chilly Switzerland from 7th to 14th of December.

We had a very intensive and thought-provoking week on methodology in the field. Experts on various methodological issues contributed insightful lectures, which will help the members to work on their final proposals and to gain fruitful significant during their fieldwork.The daily program was rounded off by a visit and guided tour at the Ethnograpic Museum and a lovely dinner with the D&T members and the Winter school's contributors.

D&T would like to thank the following contributors:
Prof. Dr. Mareile Flitsch
Dr. Frank Schubert
Dr. Jan-Patrick Heiss
Rebekka Sutter
Alexis Malefakis

In the second half of the week, D&T students and supervisors went to Crêt-Bérard near Lausanne to attend a two-days module ('Sensoriality') of the Swiss Graduate Program in Anthropology. Interacting with over 20 PhD students from different universities in Switzerland and having the opportunity to directly interact with the two renowned Anthropologists, Veena Das (Johns Hopkins University) and Micheal D. Jackson (Harvard) was a great inspiration.
