aim of the network

The network for the history and sociology of fieldwork and scientific expeditions aims to create a forum for cooperation between Danish researchers who have worked and continue to work on different aspects, periods and episodes of the history of fieldwork and scientific expeditions.

The network works to explore and expand already existing international cooperative contacts and to map out initiatives towards the study of the history of fieldwork and scientific expeditions in other countries, mainly in Europe and USA.

Moreover, a number of workshops and conferences will be held in order to discuss and clarify the possibilities and perspectives of establishing an internationally anchored research centre for the history of fieldwork and scientific expeditions.
