The new VKS Post-doctoral fellow for Spring 2008 will be Dr Kyriaki Papageorgiou. She is a recent graduate from the Cultural Anthropology Programme of the University of California, Irvine, and has pursued extensive fieldwork in Cairo. Her work addresses the intersection of modernity with tradition, and the changing boundaries between science and religion. During her fellowship, Kyriaki will work on the topic of ‘Time, Space, Cyberspace and Beyond: towards a sense of the field’ and further analyze the mediated knowledge practices that figure in her fieldwork. She will join us from mid-January, for a period of three months.
More information about our new fellow will follow shortly on the VKS website.
