We encourage students and scholars to present their research results centred on the main conference theme of ‘circulation’, its theoretical implications and practical consequences in visually appealing and conclusive posters.
Circulation is one of the major buzzwords in discourses in and around our disciplines. Its theoretical implications and practical consequences belong into most aspects of the academic work of ethnologists, folklorists and cultural anthropologists. Affecting all subfields and approaches of ethnographic research, we find the thematical specifications a convenient opportunity to visualize research work in the form of posters that will be shown throughout the conference. Contributors of posters should be present at times to be announced in order to give further information and to receive feedback in discussions with colleagues. It is strongly suggested to keep the word count as low as 1000 words to achieve best readability. The focus should lie on the visualisation of the presented work and its results. The posters should be no larger than A2. Hints on good poster design can be found at http://colinpurrington.com/tips/academic/posterdesign and several other pages around the web. Students and young scholars are strongly encouraged to propose a poster.
