This is a public research colloquium held about six times a semester. The ethnological field is broadly defined, both chronologically and thematically. The colloquium is interdisciplinary in the sense that also researchers from other disciplines, such as History of Ideas and Sciences, Art History and Visual Studies, Museology and Information Studies are welcome to attend and present preliminary results. The participants are typically PhD students and researchers in ethnology, but also advanced students and other interested researchers attend and are welcomed. The presentations are made by researchers from Lund University as well as researchers from other universities and university colleges. The language is typically Swedish, but when required the working language is English.
