Department 'Resilienz und Transformation in Eurasien'

Halle Studies in the Anthropology of Eurasia

LIT- Verlag, Berlin-Münster-Wien-Zürich-London

"... anthropology needs a broader vision. It needs to shake off its strong association with the primitive and the exotic and become genuinely global in its comparisons. From this perspective, more sustained attention to Eurasia and a renewed focus on its underlying unity might launch the transformation of our parochial scholarly traditions into a mature cosmopolitan science."

- Chris Hann, in his Preface to this series

This series, launched in 2003, is open primarily to members of the MPI and the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, offering an effective vehicle to disseminate the results of new work rapidly and to a high standard. The series is edited by senior staff of the Department in conjunction with professorial staff at the University’s Institute for Social and Cultural Anthropology.
