Hands-on Anthropology and DAY (Do Anthropology Yourself) emerged from the larger interest of a group of anthropologists based in Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. We believe in engaged anthropology and how our scientific attempts are entangled with the people and regions where we conduct research and speak about. We suggest that anyone within the institution of university and academia has to do anthropology themselves, be it a student of Business Administration or be it someone from Medical sciences.  Off course, you need to conduct ethnography to practice DAY and where we would be without the stories that shape our ethnogeraphies? We suggest that everyone with interest in how social life works and where culture comes from must do anthropology themselves. Everyone needs to evoke the anthropologist within to be able to understand how people exprience their lives and lives of others.


Be Quiet, we are telling stories ... we are entering a soul
