Off the Beaten Track summer field school

I am writing to announce the second edition of our thematic unit to be offered as part of the Off the Beaten Track summer field school this summer in Gozo, Malta. Titled, "Smells like Fieldwork: Methods in Sensory Anthropology", this unit offers a range of activities, excursions, and readings designed to help students attend to how their culturally specific modes of perception affect ethnographic fieldwork and to explore methods for understanding alternative ways of sensing the world. 

As this is a non-profit, independent and volunteer-based program with no budget for advertising, we'd be grateful if you could forward this announcement to students or programs you think would be interested in this offering. All info can be found on the website: And feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.

Thank you!
