Collaboration at the Department of European Ethnology

As a diverse and societally engaged field of science, the Department of European Ethnology is strongly present in local, regional and national development and collaborative activities. 

Many of the Department’s theses, studies and projects are closely connected to various social change processes and the discussions on these themes. In the field of European ethnology, teaching is typically integrated with research. European Ethnology research provides significant new perspectives and practical application opportunities to various different actors. 

The connections the Department has to its stakeholders are important, and they are constantly maintained and developed. The Department provides students with thesis work topics, and we are also interested in commissioned research projects and expert exchanges. Our previous collaborative projects have dealt with for example traditions and cultural heritage, multilocality and limits, as well as material cultures and travel. We are always interested in collaborating with new partners.
