We - Noémie Marcus, PhD candidate at the Laboratoire d'Anthropologie des Mondes Contemporains (LAMC, ULB) and Margot Lammers, Master student in social and cultural Anthropology (ULB) - would like to invite you to our bimonthly lecture groups on the subject of the "dangerous ethnographic silences".
As young scholars the first steps in academia can be intimidating: unanticipated impediments in the field related to our gendered and/or racialized bodies; (mental) health in academia; or emotions in the field(s). These are but some of the (frequently) muffled issues we would like to address conjointly - within a safe, respectful and non-competitive space.
