New reading club coordinator
We are happy to announce that we have a new reading club coordinator, Justine Laurent! Justine is a PhD student in the Anthropology department and works on defecation practices and sanitation systems.
The reading club is open for everyone (regardless of ‘rank’ or university) but is based at the University of Amsterdam and counts as an ‘official’ PhD reading club for the graduate program at AISSR. Please contact Justine Laurent for more information: J.C.Laurent@uva.nl.
