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.

El-Tom, Dr. Abdullahi Osmon, National U. of Ireland, Maynooth, Ireland - To aid conference on 'EASA 2010: Crisis and Imagination,' 2010, National U. of Ireland Maynooth

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.

Project Title: 
Larkin, Dr. Brian, Barnard College, New York, NY - To aid research on 'The Media System of Empire'

Preliminary abstract: The aim of my project is to look at the communicative structures of empire �' the laying of telegraphs and railroad lines, the relay of files, desptaches and reports - that underlie the command and control structure of imperial orders. Imperial control organizes diverse territories into a hierarchical system that places into motion a ceaseless movement of files, persons, laws, documents and administrative practices. How do these modes of circulation constitute empire as a modern system of administration? In what ways are the systems of communication constitutive of the character of the Empire whose information they relay? How does this represent a modern form of control for colonized societies? In order to answer these questions, I plan to analyze the circulatory systems, what some have called the information orders of imperial rule.
