A great big headline to catch some attention, because everyone likes attention

So you understand the roaring wave of fear that swept through the greatest city in the world just as Monday was dawning--the stream of flight rising swiftly to a torrent, lashing in a foaming tumult round the railway stations, banked up into a horrible struggle about the shipping in the Thames, and hurrying by every available channel northward and eastward. By ten o'clock the police organisation, and by midday even the railway organisations, were losing coherency, losing shape and efficiency, guttering, softening, running at last in that swift liquefaction of the social body.

Welcome to the Ethnography and Social Theory Colloquium Series (EST). The EST colloquium is a Monday afternoon speaker series organized by a graduate student coordinating committee, consisting of the first and second-year sociocultural anthropology graduate cohort at the Yale University Department of Anthropology.

EST aims to create an intellectually dynamic and rigorous academic space for public debate and discussion. It provides a forum for emerging and seasoned scholars to exhibit and experiment with new research and ideas. We invite scholars, researchers, post-docs, and advanced graduate students from within and outside the Yale community to share research approaches that emphasize connections between ethnographic writing, theory, and methods, especially those approaches that stimulate debate over innovation in anthropological praxis.

The 2023-2024 EST organizing committee includes Charlotte Bednarski, Hunter Craft, Logan Emlet, Devi Nayar, Aika Sato, and Andrés Triana Solórzano.

Professors Erik Harms serve as the faculty advisors.
