Description

The present workshop aims to find the guiding research question for the intended Austrian-Slovenian project regarding multilocal practices and cultures.

Aims of the workshop:

  • To establish an overview of research being done in Slovenia and Austria having the capacity to converge into a cooperative Mobile Culture research project;
  • To find clues for empirical studies in Mobile Culture that consider ethnographic, historical and everyday culture perspectives;
  • To evaluate the fields of biographical research capable of supporting in-depth ethnographic work;
  • To produce and publish a working paper that assesses the theoretical questions which support the research and locate the fieldwork for a funding request.
