Preliminary abstract: This Conference is the first joint gathering of the International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences (IUAES), the Australian Anthropological Society (AAS) and the Association of Social Anthropologists of Aotearoa/New Zealand (ASAANZ). It is a unique collaborative effort to facilitate an international debate about the epistemology of anthropology -- a critical re-evaluation and examination about our basic categories of understanding - as they have shaped recent developments within the discipline, and as they have informed popular discourse about the globalizing world. This will include a discussion about the ethical dimensions of the popularization of anthropology and the problematic use of our signature concepts by other disciplines. The aim of the Conference is create a dialogue that is as inclusive and as interdisciplinary as possible among scholars from the Global North and South. The Conference will also create a larger stage for antipodean anthropology which has had a significant historical role in shaping the history of the discipline; it will facilitate networks for early career researchers; and it will showcase the work of international and national postgraduate students. By bringing together local and global societies, we will provide an opportunity to attract attention to, and disseminate knowledge about, anthropological thought and practice.

Browner, Dr. Carole H., U. of California, Los Angeles, CA - To aid conference on 'Reproduction, Globalization, and the State,' 2006, Rockefeller Bellagio Center, Italy, in collaboration with Dr. Carolyn Sargent

'Reproduction, Globalization and the State'
June 1-7, 2006, Rockefeller Bellagio Conference Center, Bellagio, Italy
Organizers: Dr. Carole H. Browner (University of California - Los Angeles) and Dr. Carolyn Sargent (Southern Methodist University)

This workshop explored the impact of national and global structures and ideologies on reproductive health policies, behaviors, and technologies in diverse populations worldwide. The sixteen presentations generated three major themes: 'Conceptualizing the Local, State, Global;' 'Conceptualizing Linkages;' and 'Future Directions.' Discussions during the week-long workshop resulted in some of the following conclusions: 1) The nature of global processes requires an emphasis on connection, and definitions of local/global/state must be formulated in relation to one another; 2) Researchers must broaden the concept of 'site' so it refers to both 'place' and subject (or body) where multiple social agendas may converge; and 3) The concept of agency requires more investigation as a productive and/or counter-productive practice in the domain of reproduction.

Project Title: 
Chua, Dr. Liana Cheng Lian, Brunel U., London, UK - To aid workshop on 'Who Are We? Reimagining Alterity and Affinity in Anthropology,' 2014, Cambridge U., in collaboration with Dr. Nayanika Mathur

Preliminary abstract: This workshop revolves around the myriad ways in which anthropologists construe and conduct themselves as part of larger communities, movements, and disciplines, and the implications of these practices for our understandings of difference and similarity. Although the ethnographic 'other' has been subject to endless investigation and description, less attention has been paid to its implicit foil -- the anthropological 'we'. Yet the the tacit assumption of belonging and speaking to an intellectual collective is often pivotal to conceptualizations and theories of alterity, which remains a mainstay of anthropological knowledge-making. This workshop seeks to lay bare the relationship between forms and ideas of anthropological affinity and broader issues of alterity and affinity in ethnographic theory, practice, and writing. Explicitly plural and international in scope, it will invite scholars from around the world to interrogate questions about anthropology's composition, ethico-political agendas, and futures. In the process, it will build on existing reflexive trends within anthropology while extending them beyond the influence of post-modernism and the Euro-American circles in which they have mostly occurred. As the discipline becomes increasingly public, 'engaged,' and global, this workshop will be a timely and democratizing intervention that will engender new understandings of how anthropology is crafted and mobilized.
