Ethnologie Neuerscheinungen Cover
Ethnologie/Anthropologie

Die "Ethnologie" pflegt der LIT Verlag seit Jahren als eigenständigen Programmschwerpunkt. Das Verlagsprogramm bildet das Fach umfassend und differenziert ab. Es schlägt dabei bewußt eine Brücke zwischen der (außereuropäischen) Ethnologie und der Europäischen Ethnologie bzw. Empirischen Kulturwissenschaft. Regionale Zugänge (Europa, Asien, Afrika, Lateinanmerika, Ozeanien) finden neben thematischen Zugängen zu wichtigen Teildisziplinen (Medizin-, Religions-, Historischen-, Rechts-, Entwicklungsethnologie) eine angemessene Berücksichtigung.

Über die aktive Förderung englisch-sprachiger Titel ist LIT Verlag zu einem international anerkannten Fachverlag in der Ethnologie geworden.

Bei Fragen zum Fachgebiet Ethnologie/Anthropologie wenden Sie sich bitte an Herrn Veit Hopf.

The Beginnings of Mission on the Gold Coast (present-day Ghana)
With special Emphasis on Basel and Catholic Missions

This work is a research into the foundations of some of the mainstream Churches in Ghana viz, the Catholic, Presbyterian (Basel), Methodist, Moravian, Bremen and Anglican Missions. This is because it is imperatively objective for people of every institution to have the history of the foundations of their setup at their finger tips. Placing much emphasis on the beginnings of the Catholic and Presbyterian Missions, the author gives a handy reference book to all the people of Faith in these denominations, who wish to acquaint themselves with the anecdotes of their Churches as well as to others who desire to research into or acquire some knowledge of these Religious groupings.

Rurality and future making – Comparative Perspectives from Europe, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean
This conference brings together three GAA regional working groups – Anthropology of Europe, the Middle East and the Mediterranean – to explore rurality as a reserve and resource for future-making in their interconnected and transnational regionalities. It invites participants to explore situated practices of future-making in order to trace how rurality is achieved, marked and (de-)stabilized in different places. Through concrete ethnographic case studies, we aim at conceptualizing the ‘rural’ beyond well-known center-periphery dichotomies. Well aware that ‘the rural’ and ‘the urban’ can only be “understood as a continuum irreducible to the polarity of one or the other term” (Chio 2017:362); we use the rural lens to create an anthropological laboratory (Albera 1999) which enables us to “write against established categories” (Horden 2014:9). This conference invites researchers to reflect on the various perpetuated methodological urbanisms, ruralisms and regionalisms, i.e. the persisting preoccupation of ethnographers with urban spaces and research in geographically and/ or politically bounded categories like Europe, the Middle East and the Mediterranean. Most of these categories contribute to the construction of our methodological iron cage as Wimmer and Glick-Schiller pointed out in the term methodological nationalism (2002:302). With the focus on rurality as an anthropological laboratory and lens, we aim to challenge earlier essentialist approaches and at the same time emphasize its contradictory and thus productive potential.
