Department 'Resilience and Transformation in Eurasia'

In its first years (1999-2005) this department concentrated its research on postsocialist property relations. This phase was followed by a project on citizenship in the Caucasus and by a series of studies of religion after socialism (2003-2010). Themes and spatial boundaries have been progressively expanded to include China and Vietnam (since 2006) and Japan (since 2009). Recent work in economic anthropology has enlarged the frame still further, e.g. with projects in S. Asia and Egypt, and new projects on „financialization“ (from 2015) are global in scope.
Our „inclusive“ approach to contemporary Eurasia is supported (since 2009) by projects in historical anthropology. It also forms the frame for our interdisciplinary International Max Planck Research School „Anthropology, Archaeology and History of Eurasia“.
The research programmes of the Department are all organized within the optic of „Eurasia“; for elaboration of this concept see Working Paper 157.
