Zur Vita

Günther Schlee was until 1999 Professor of Social Anthropology at the University of Bielefeld, having studied anthropology, romance languages and general linguistics in Hamburg. He received his doctorate for research on the belief and social systems of the Rendille, an ethnic group in northern Kenya. Alongside widespread fieldwork trips in Kenya, Ethiopia and Sudan, he was also guest lecturer in Padang (Sumatra) and at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Science Sociales in Paris. Typical of the research of Günther Schlee is the "inter-ethnic" procedure and the combining of historical, sociological and philological methods. He is the spokesperson of the International Max Planck Research School REMEP (Retaliation, Mediation and Punishment) and co-chairing the Centre for  Anthropological Studies on Central Asia with Peter Finke (University of Zurich).
