School/Organization/Current anthropological attachment
UNICAMP, Brazil & Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology, Germany

Who am I?

All through the 1990s, I meandered from academic studies to music (and back). After numerous concerts and two CDs, I finally retired as a musician and concentrated on anthropology. In 2000, I graduated with a work on anthropological research on war prisoners in WWI (University of Hamburg). My Ph-D thesis (published 2006) is dedicated to “Post-Soviet Feasting: The Georgian Banquet in Transition”. Before becoming a member of the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology, I taught Social Anthropology at the Tbilisi State University (Georgia) and worked as a freelance copywriter and online-editor. Currently, I am a visting professor at the University of Campinas, Brazil, teaching a course on the "Anthropology of Citizenship in Post-Totalitarian Societies" and working on my book on "Being a State and States of Being in Highland Georgia". Besides, I am editing a volume with Sergey Sokolovskiy on "Soviet Era Anthropology in the Caucasus and Central Asia", as well as a Portuguese reader dedicated to Postsocialism with Omar Reibeiro Thomaz.

Hi Florian,

I notice that you now have two accounts here (http://openanthcoop.ning.com/profile/FlorianMuehlfried478). Was that intentional?

Hi Florian, I met you at a party here in Campinas, few months ago, but you shouldn't remember me. I do not attend your course, cause I don't speak english so well, but I read the program and found the excellent discussion. Good to see you here in OAC.

Hey Florian. Do you think we could put the Alterites Call for paper on the website? It would be so interesting to have texts from the Caucasus on feminism...If so please help me with the procedures...Thanks!

Lieber Florian, vielen Dank für Deine Initiative, diese Gruppe ins Leben zu rufen! Die Idee mit der Datenbank finde ich auch super! Viele Grüße nach Brasilien, Birgit

Lieber Florian. Wahrscheinlich hauptsächlich aufgrund deiner Bemühungen scheint " 'Anthropology in/of the Caucasus'" zu der am schnellsten anwachsenden Gruppe zu werden !!! Aber solltest du nicht artig an deiner Habil schreiben? - Am 4. Juli fliegen wir nach Georgien. Grüße nach Brasilien.

Lieber Florian, vielen Dank für die freundliche Begrüßung! Ja, Zaliko fehlt mir und dem Teil meiner Familie, der ihn kannte (Inna und Nastia) sehr. Mein persönliches Tbilisi hat sich durch seinen Tod verändert.
Alles Gute in Brasilien

Hi Florian,
I'm eager joining you in the Caucasus group. But as a specialist on kolkhozes (one of which we are) I'd like to note the absence of brigade units within the group. So why not to create, say, Islamic brigade inside the Caucasus group?
Cheers, Volodia

Florian, ich dachte immer, wir sind schon bei den Kaukasiern oder meinst ganz bestimmte Kaukasier z.B. aus dem Hochgebirge, die ich noch nicht kenne? ;-)
