ENPA Work in Progress Seminar (WiPS)

The ENPA Works-in-Progress Seminar (WiPS), launched by ENPA in October 2021, and run by Nadia Augustyniak, Mona Behnke, Mayssa Rekhis, and Lavinia Țânculescu-Popa on the steering committee, is a forum in which faculty, researchers and postgraduate students present works in progress, receive feedback, and exchange ideas about research in psychological anthropology and allied fields. We meet on the second Thursday of each month from 5 to 7 pm CET.

Each seminar meeting features one or more presentations of work in progress. The presentation format is flexible and open-ended; each seminar includes ample time for discussion, offering a stimulating, collaborative space to foster discussions in psychological anthropology. 

Scholars and students at all levels interested in psychological anthropology are welcome to attend, and no advance registration is required.
