In his inaugural lecture as professor of European Ethnology, Peter Jan Margry will shed light on the meaning of ethnology as a reflective science that – especially on the basis of ethnographic-empirically founded research – offers insights into everyday human behaviour. Margry will do so by focusing on the processes of signification and existential reflection, as well as on the relationships with traditions and immaterial heritage.
P.J. Margry, professor of European Ethnology: Bloed kruipt! Over de culturele hemoglobine van de samenleving.
This event is open to the public.
(Please note: this inaugural lecture will be held in Dutch.)
