University of Cambridge and Germany’s Max Planck Society to create new research centre

The Max Planck-Cambridge Centre for the Study of Ethics, Economy and Social Change, an innovative collaboration funded jointly by the University of Cambridge and the Max Planck Society, was formally established as of 1 July 2017. The Centre will be co-directed by Chris Hann (Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology, Halle/Saale), James Laidlaw and Joel Robbins (Department of Social Anthropology, Cambridge University), and Peter van der Veer (Max Planck Institute for the Study of Religious and Ethnic Diversity, Göttingen), and will be dedicated to pursuing fresh ethnographic research in fields of urgent concern to humanity today. Postdoctoral positions will be advertised shortly and the Centre will be officially launched in Cambridge in early 2018.
