On Methodological Imaginations: Exploring Joensuu in Eastern Finland

M.A. students from University of Ljubljana and University of Bremen meet students from Cultural Studies at UEF Joensuu campus this week for experimenting with ethnographic methodologies: small research-teams are dealing with sensobiographic walks, arts-based methods and creative mapping in order to explore knowledge on the city- and landscape of Joensuu and Pielisjoki river. Questions about local  concepts of silence and translocal memorial imaginations as well as concerns about commercial and participatory approches on cityplanning are discussed. The students are mentored by professors in Anthropology an Cultural Studies from the three European universities involved.
