66084-01 - Exkursion: Exploring Urban Environmental Futures in Colombia: Climate Justice, the Promise of Infrastructure and Beyond 10 KP

Semester Herbstsemester 2022
Angebotsmuster einmalig
Dozierende Silke Oldenburg (silke.oldenburg@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt The core of the MA Anthropology in Basel is a thorough training in ethnographic methodology through a partly subsidized and guided fieldtrip. During this course (two terms, six weeks of fieldwork abroad in January/ February 2023), MA students formulate their individual research proposal and conduct research under the supervision of Dr. Silke Oldenburg.
The general theme of the field course sheds light on Urban Environmental Futures within which the individual research projects are loosely situated. The course focuses on Cartagena de Indias, a Colombian port and world heritage city, where climate change and rising sea level have become a pressing environmental challenge for both, municipal agencies and ordinary citizens, to mitigate flooding risk, preserve urban infrastructure and prepare for the future.
Topics about climate narratives, urban infrastructures related to environmental issues or climate justice in general might guide your ways of thinking about coming up with your own research topic during this class.
Come and join the first meeting on Wednesday, 25 May 2022, from 12.30 to 1.30pm, in the seminar room at the Institute of Anthropology (Münsterplatz 19, 4051 Basel)

Lernziele You will learn how to
• formulate your own research questions in line with your interest and job aspirations supervised by an experienced anthropologist;
• apply ethnographic methods during a field trip of six weeks to urban Colombia combining theory and practice;
• improve your language skills and communication skills across milieus and contexts;
• analyse the collected data, present the findings in an academic context and write a final field report;

Literatur Will be discussed in class.
