On October 30th, a workshop on ethnological network analysis organized by the SFB took place in Tehran, where after an introductory part, especially the work with the analysis and visualization software "VennMaker" was taught. The approx. 15 Iranian participants learned and practiced the presentation of egocentric networks, whereby the event, apart from the practical use, of course also served the intercultural dialogue.

On the Occasion of the 50th anniversary of its program ‚Collaborative Research Centers‘ the German Research Community DFG presented an article about it in its online magazine. Out of 260 Collaborative Research Centers in whole Germany they chose to present seven for being great examples of PR. Among them: the Collaborative Research Centre SFB 1070 ResourceCultures. We are very proud of that, because it shows that we are on the right track. Amongst the events our research centre had carried out they named especially three: The exhibition ‚Curse and Blessing of Resources‘ at the museum of the university at the castle of Tübingen wich took place from October 2016 until January 2017, Children’s University Tübingen, where Kids could discover bronze age resources by playing and last years school project: ‚The world is our field‘. In this project our researchers and students were able to give pupils some insights into various subjects of cultural anthropology. Our Collaborative Research Centre SFB 1070 ResourceCultures is one out of seven at the University of Tübingen. We are funded by the German Research Community DFG since 2013. Researchers from different fields of Archeology, Philology, the science of history, Cultural Anthropology and empirical Cultural Studies are working at a new understanding of the concept of resources. DFG is funding the staff, invests in scientific devices and finances field trips, symposia, guest lectures, international cooperations, PR, and programs concerning young researchers as well as gender equity. We congratulate the German Research Community DFG on this anniversary and we want to give our sincere thanks for allowing us at SFB 1070 ResourceCultures to do our research.
