We warmly invite you to attend events organized as part of our biannual 'Global Ethnographies', showcasing our postgraduate students' work! Katherine Baxter has planned a wonderful series of events and visuals based on her doctoral field research in Nepal.

Katherine's project, Childhood, Livelihoods and the Everyday: a Ethnography of the Lived Experience of the 'Global Schooling Project' in Nepal invites us to reflect on how young people experience and live the 'global schooling project' in their everyday lives. There will be short thematic mini-documentaries - taken by Katherine - lots of conversation, and a wine reception.
