News from Aug 24, 2016

The winter semester is just around the corner, and work at the Collaborative Research Center (SFB) 700 is entering the home stretch. Preparations have begun for the SFB’s closing events in the coming year. Our researchers are working at maximum capacity to analyze their findings and finalize their last publications. In this newsletter, research associates Luisa Linke-Behrens, Anton Petrov, and Leon Schettler will report on their fieldwork in Tanzania, Great Britain, and Haiti as part of their projects at the SFB.

So far the year 2016 has been immensely productive at the Collaborative Research Center, beginning with our successful participation in the 57th Annual Convention of the International Studies Association (ISA) in Atlanta, USA. The last weeks and months have been filled with various events – at both the SFB and our partner institutions – and we would like to take this opportunity to inform you about them. In addition, we are excited to introduce our current visiting scholars and to tell you about our most recent publications.

We hope you enjoy the newsletter and look forward to receiving your feedback!

With best wishes,

Thomas Risse
Coordinator SFB 700
