1999 to 2007, the East / Central Europe Research Group
at the Institute of
Anthropology, Copenhagen University, was a group of
teachers and students who had done (or were planning)
fieldwork in the post-socialist societies from East Germany
to Mongolia, from the Siberian Arctic to Central Asia.
Research Group held informal meetings about once a month,
where we discussed ongoing projects, recounted fieldwork
experiences etc. The group also arranged regular lectures
on the anthropology of post-socialism.
group's purpose was to strengthen and stimulate research
in this field. It participated in a wider, partly formalized
Nordic and East European
network (NECEN) of students and researchers with an
interest in the region.

description of the group, which includes a short history
of the group, a list
of group members, and an overview of our activities
