Urban resilience in the ancient world
While resilience has been a hotly debated theme in archaeology, it has also become clear that archaeological evidence, due to its “momentary” or “mixed” nature often only offers a glimpse into long-term complex processes. It is seldom possible to disentangle long-term processes from one archaeological context. Such disentangling requires a multifaceted approach where evidence from different contexts are pulled together and evaluated both on their own terms but also in relation to each other.

New Perspectives on Archive Archaeology
Archives are an indispensable tool for deciphering the past. What composes an archive is variable almost anything can become part of an archive but no matter what type of documentation, such materials tell the stories. Archives can document objects at specific points in the afterlives, or develop historiography by providing indirect evidence of the people who collected, created, and compiled the archive. In sum, archival materials have the potential to be more than dry and “objective” documents. Archives bring past stories to life.

Eucharist presence mediality part 2
When government restrictions following the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic shut down public religious services in Denmark and in the rest of the world, the use of digital and analogue media (live stream, zoom, traditional TV and radio) in order to transmit religious services increased rapidly on every continent. In the context of the Danish Lutheran Church, the important question arose, whether the Lord s Supper can be legitimately celebrated online, in the sense that people consume bread and wine at home, which has been consecrated in an electronically mediated way. The question is not new, but has sporadically been discussed in relation to services broadcasted on TV and radio.

Crafting Ethnography: Analysis, argument and writing
This course approaches ethnographic analysis, argument and writing as a craft to be learned. Good ethnographic craftsmanship entails giving primacy to empirical material and bringing it into dialogue with theoretical positions to nuance, refine, question and contradict these positions. Working with ethnographic material thus entails a particular kind of composition, the concrete arrangement and juxtaposition of ethnographic fragments and analytical reflections (Nielsen & Rapport 2018).

From Fieldwork to Analysis
Day 1: The focus of this session is on different ways to organize and work with fieldwork material. Day 1 will be a general introduction to analytical thinking discussing how one moves from empirical material to data. Day 2: The focus of this session is on how one links analytical concepts to theories in an effective and consistent way. This discussion will be based on comments from peers and teachers on the pre-circulated texts.

From Plans to Practice
This workshop gives new PhD students in Anthropology at Aarhus University and Copenhagen University the opportunity to present their research projects for critical and constructive discussion in order to turn a successful research proposal into a viable fieldwork project. Projects will be considered in terms of research design, the operationalizing of theories and concepts, methods of constructing data in the field, research ethics and insuring openness to the unexpected.

Political Theory and Intellectual History
Political theory and intellectual history is in many ways a cross-field in which historians, philosophers, political scientists, and anthropologists analyse the way in which political theory influences political phenomena and vice versa. Unlike traditional intellectual history, scholars working within this cross-field do not merely attempt to reconstruct political thought and what really happened. Rather, the purpose of conducting intellectual history is to develop political theories and concepts, which can be used to develop general theories of politics and to analyse contemporary as well as historical phenomena.

The material and immaterial legacies of colonialism are numerous in former colonized territories as well as in Europe. While formal or external colonialism, defined by the transfer of people from metropole to colony in settlements of overseas territories (Oldfield 2018), has largely come to an end, coloniality persist for example in forms internal colonialisms, within academic disciplines, and in bordering practices – the biopolitical and geopolitical management and fencing of people, land, flaura and fauna within a nation actualized by the global Covid-19 virus (Ndlovu-Gatsheni 2013 , Yuval-Davis, Wemyss, Cassidy 2019).
