Candidates came from developing contexts and/or parts of the world where professional networks or societies of medical anthropologists have not yet fully developed. Wenner-Gren funding aided eighteen individuals from Argentina, Nepal, Thailand, Zimbabwe, South Africa, Tanzania, Lagos, Peru, Mexico, Chile, Portugal, Taiwan, the Philippines, India and Germany to attend the conference. Sessions, plenaries, workshops and cultural events were fully attended and the response from the participants was very enthusiastic.

'Transcending Postcolonial Conditions: Towards Alternative Modernities'
December 3-7, 2007, University of Cape Town, Cape Town, South Africa
Organizers: Andrew Spiegel and Fiona Ross (University of Cape Town)

An intercongress of the International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences (IUAES) joined together with the Pan African Association of Anthropologists (PAAA) and Anthropology Southern Africa (ASnA) for a conference on 'Transcending Postcolonial Conditions: Towards Alternative Modernities,' held in Cape Town. The goal of the joint meeting was for internationally based anthropologists to engage in ethnographically based discussion of the predicament of contemporarily marginalized people -- whether in formally postcolonial areas or in pockets of metropolitan countries -- and to consider alternative modernist structures that arise under those circumstances. It also hosted the first ever meeting of the IUAES executives and leaders of the World Congress of Anthropological Associations (WCAA).Two hundred twenty-two papers (including two keynotes) were accepted. Presented in 70 parallel sessions (plus three plenaries), they involved over 250 scholars from 49 countries in all five major continents. The conference was probably the largest and most diverse ever of social and cultural anthropologists held at an African continental venue. Particularly interesting was the final synthetic plenary. Presented by southern African graduate students, it revealed a sharp critique of various aspects of the discussions and also an intensity and lively interest among local younger anthropologists, and it offered reassurance of our discipline’s capacity to retain its critical edge. Similar reassurances emanated from a roundtable discussion on perspectives on doing anthropology in a contemporary context, with students and colleagues from peripheral areas whose attendance was made possible by support from Wenner-Gren.

Owen Lewis, Dr. Nancy, School of American Research, Santa Fe, NM -- To aid conference on 'Toward an Anthropology of Democracy,' 2005, SAR, in collaboration with Dr. Julia Paley

'Toward an Anthropology of Democracy,' March 5-11, 2005, School of American Research, Santa Fe, New Mexico -- Organizers: Nancy Owen Lewis and Julia Palay. Most studies of democracy have been conducted by political scientists whose concerns with formal political institutions, regime shifts, and comparative national studies have
shaped the questions and set the agendas for debate. Such studies seldom address the daily life and political struggles of people living in non-elite sectors of democratic societies. Drawing on ethnographic research of people outside the formal political system, eight anthropologists examined the religious, linguistic, and historical frameworks that inform the meaning of democracy in a wide range of geographic contexts, including the United States, Latin America, Asia, and Africa. Questioning the widespread use of 'models of democracy,' participants concluded that democracy is by nature an open-ended set of questions about the workings of power - questions that are best engaged through the dialogical processes of fieldwork and ethnographic writing. These results have important implications for the practice of politics in a democratic society.

Preliminary abstract: At the beginning of the 21st Century, a global economic crisis reminds us of the fragility of both our institutions and our epistemologies. Mutually compounding political, medical, ecological, cultural, economic, religious, demographic, ideological and military crises increasingly define our world and appear to delimit the boundaries of the knowable as well as the possibilities for collective action. We have moved from the 'old' crises which occupied the attention of anthropology in the past: acculturation, migration, (de)colonisation, ecological change and adaptation, fission of lineage systems, etc., to a series of ostensibly 'new' crises: global warming and the limits of non-renewable energy, AIDS, neo-imperialism, resource wars, military humanitarianism, the break-up of post-colonial multiethnic states and post-socialist blocs, the end of 'conventional warfare,' biotechnological invention and resulting ethical quandaries, new secularisms versus new fundamentalisms, and of course, global financial chaos and the crises of the 'Washington consensus' and neoliberal economics. How can anthropologists respond to, and help to resolve, these crises? EASA 2010 invites anthropologists to examine causes and consequences of contemporary crises and to contribute to imagining responses to them.

The European Association of Social Anthropologists (EASA), established in 1989, is Europe's largest association in sociocultural anthropology, with approximately 1200 members, including the most prominent anthropologists in Europe. The biannual EASA conference will host upwards of 1,000 social anthropologists from around Europe and the world in Maynooth, Ireland. The local organizer of the conference is the department of anthropology at the National University of Ireland Maynooth -- the only department of anthropology in the Republic of Ireland.
