'Workshop of the Society for Anthropological Sciences'
September 22-44, 2010, American Center, Pilsen, Czech Republic
Organizers: Daniel Sosna (University of West Bohemia), Stephen Lyon and David Henig (Durham University)

The first European workshop of the Society for Anthropological Sciences (SASci) was aimed at the promotion of rigorous approaches to the study of human sociocultural and biological variability. The primary goal of the workshop was the advancement of formal scientific approaches in anthropology. The last thirty years have witnessed the development
of a critical anthropology fostering the view that anthropology has been a literary project where rhetorical sophistication prevailed. SASci has grown out of the activities of anthropologists who prefer holistic and scientifically rigorous views of anthropology. The second goal of the workshop was to investigate the overlaps and tensions among subdisciplines
of anthropology through interdisciplinary design. The organizers assumed that the crucial predisposition for participation in the workshop was not the topic of research but the point of view. Formal approaches were applied to various anthropological topics including kinship terminologies, evolution of language and material culture, cognition and mortuary practices. The discussions demonstrated that formal methods can accommodate various kinds of anthropological data and expand to new spheres of interest.

'Easter Island and the Pacific: Migration, Cutlural Heritage, and Identity'
August 20-27, 2007, Gotland University, Visby, Sweden
Organizer: Dr. Helene Martinsson-Wallin (Gotland University)

Funding from the Wenner-Gren Foundation made it possible to invite young scholars and students form three World Heritage sites -- Rapa Nui National Park on Easter Island/Rapa Nui (Chile/The Pacfic); Stone Town on Zanzibar (Tanzania); and Visby on Gotland (Sweden) -- to participate in a workshop on 'World Heritage and Identity: Three Worlds Meet.' The workshop was held in conjunction with the 7th International Conference on Easter Island and the Pacific. Participants were mainly students and junior scholars who otherwise have little chance to participate in international conferences. They presented data about their sites and discussed concerns and problems facing their World Heritage status. The sites discussed are found on islands with different historical and religious backgrounds, but they all contain a vulnerable archaeological heritage and have an economy closely tied to cultural tourism. The workshop discussions resulted in new networks among the participants and built a foundation for the continuation of educational exchanges between Gotland University, University of Zanzibar, CONADI Rapa Nui, and The National University of Samoa.

'Human Warfare: An Integrative Anthropological Perspective'
October 16-18, 2008, University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon
Organizers: Frances J. White and Douglas Kennett, University of Oregon

This meeting addressed the need for an integrated model of the ancestral conditions that led to the emergence of warfare and/or to adaptations that evolved in response to those pressures. To this end, the conference brought together scholars from diverse anthropological sub-disciplines (e.g. primatology, paleo-anthropology, archaeology, behavioral ecology, ethnography) and related disciplines (e.g. political science, psychology, economics, evolutionary biology) whose work has significantly advanced knowledge on this topic but who would not otherwise have occasion to meet. The conference resulted in a book proposal, which has been enthusiastically received by Oxford University Press and will soon be sent out for review. This volume will constitute the first comprehensive evolutionary treatment of the ecological, social, and psychological processes involved in warfare.
