'Ethnografeast III: Ethnography and the Public Sphere'
June 20-23, 2007, Instituto Superior de Ciencias do Trabalho e da Empresa, Lisbon, Portugal
Organizers: Dr. Manuela Ivone Cunha (Universidade do Minho) and Dr. Maria Antonia Lima (ISCTE)

'Ethnografeast III' brought together a group of field-based anthropologists and sociologists to address the relationship between ethnography and the public sphere. Questions raised by this relationship go beyond classical discussions about 'applied' or other research whose 'usefulness' is understood strictly in instrumental terms. They involve not only research that engages policy-making and makers, but, more widely, research that tackles salient social issues or politically significant phenomena. The relevance of ethnographic research for civic concerns or the public framing of research questions and findings, the agendas, the audiences, and the circulation of ethnographic products, the negotiation of ethnographic expertise, the question of the continuities and discontinuities between ethnographic knowledge and civic choices or political decisions, are issues that call for a broad reflection on the effects of public debates on ethnography and vice-versa.

Fitzgerald, Dr. Ruth, U. of Otago, Otago, New Zealand - To aid joint conference of New Zealand and Australian anthropological societies on 'Cosmopolitan Anthropologies,' 2014, Queenstown, New Zealand, in collaboration with Dr. Chrystal Jaye

Preliminary abstract: This combined conference of the New Zealand and the Australian anthropological societies explores and extends the critical study of cosmopolitan anthropologies by debating the theoretical value and practical applicability of an array of grounded Antipodean cosmopolitan anthropologies and by engaging systematically with the literature on cosmopolitan anthropologies from the perspective of medical anthropology. The aim is thus to further internationalise anthropological thinking and practice in New Zealand and Australia and to create a formal contribution to anthropological scholarship through the publication of two peer reviewed, edited collections drawn from the keynote addresses and plenaries and one special issue of the New Zealand based journal Sites featuring the best quality (peer reviewed) conference papers on the theme of cosmopolitan anthropologies of the Pacific. Two prestigous keynote speakers will address the delegates, Professor Nigel Rapport ( St Andrews University, Scotland) and Prof Sharon Kaufman (University of California). In addition to the delegates' presentation of original ideas for abstracts and panels for this conference, the programme will also feature invited panels on the following topics: 'Politesse as ethics?'; 'Feminisms and cosmopolitanisms'; 'Cosmopolitan health care practices' and 'The case for and against a grounded Antipodean Cosmopolitan Anthropolgy or Anthropologies.'
