The REALEURASIA Blog is edited by the three senior members of the project (Chris Hann, Sylvia Terpe and Lale Yalçın-Heckmann). It features research funded by the European Research Council under the European Union's Seventh Programme, ERC Grant Agreement No. 340854 (REALEURASIA). The blog has the following functions:
- To link the anthropological themes and historical vision of the project to current affairs (international relations, political economy etc.)
- To document field research and disseminate research results in accessible form for a broad public
- To chronicle project-related events (panels, workshops etc)
In Spring 2020 it was decided to open up this blog (the sole instrument of its kind available in the Department) to guest contributions engaging with any aspect of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, in the spirit of a creative public anthropology.
