The network meeting will be carried out through the same Shindig platform as the conference. It is not restricted to who is registered to the conference. Even if you are not attending the conference, this enables you to join the network meeting. We will circulate a link to join the meeting as well as time, which will also be available on the conference webpage.
In our ASN meeting we would like to update you on the networks activities
and in specific discuss future directions and possible activities. We
will also be holding the bi-annual election for convenors. In occasion of the
conference in 2019 several possibilities to make the network more useful to
its members were discussed, some of which we have initiated since. But there is
certainly room for more, which we are looking forward to discuss. Save the date, we invite “old and new” colleagues to join the
meeting, which is open to everyone interested!
Conveners: Mark Maguire (Maynooth University), Alexandra Schwell (AAU Klagenfurt), Monika Weissensteiner (University of Kent)
Discussant: David A. Westbrook
Call for Papers for the EASA 2020 panel no. 116 in Lisbon (21-24 July 2020):
The Future in Security: ethnographies of security at the edge of tomorrow [ASN]
This Anthropology of Security Network (ASN) panel calls for anthropologists exploring the future in security to propose papers (with one-word titles) that are crafted to explain the term as used in their ethnographic field site.
Call for Papers for the EASA 2020 panel no. 077 in Lisbon (21-24 July 2020):
Securitized Education: critical perceptions on the entanglements between military, security and education [Anthropology of Security Network, Peace and Conflict Studies in Anthropology PACSA]
This panel seeks to demonstrate how military/security and educational domains are entangled in ways that promote militarization and securitization. By examining these entanglements critically, we aim to uncover processes that normalize the use of violence and military means within civil society.
The call for panels for the 2020 EASA conference in Lisbon is now open. We invite you to submit panel proposals under the Anthropology of Security Network. Please feel free to use the network email list to exchange upon proposals or to find colleagues interested in convening a panel together. The Call for panel closes on 21st of October.https://www.easaonline.org/conferences/easa2020/
To draw other security scholar’s attention to your panel and to increase the network’s visibility, we encourage you to propose your panel under the ASN banner by adding “[ASN]” in your panel submission. Please inform us(email@example.com) beforehand about the security-related panels you’re planning to submit.
The human body has become a privileged “bearer and signifier” of in/security – so the main message of the book “Bodies as Evidence. Security, Knowledge, and Power” (eds. Maguire, Rao, Zurawski 2018). As such, body-evidence relations can be turned into an insightful object of inquiry, as the nine thematic chapters of the book show. Jean Comaroff praises the book precisely for illuminating “the core drama of our times, when radical uncertainty feeds a fetishism of evidence, when alt-authoritarianism breeds a strange new relativism and an insidious obsession with fakery” (book-cover).
Call for Papers on ‘Security and Morality’ for a special issue of the Journal of Extreme Anthropology.
Following the Security and Morality: Critical Anthropological Perspectives conference organized by the EASA Anthropology of Security Network at the University of Oslo in March 2019, the open-access peer-reviewed Journal of Extreme Anthropology has decided to dedicate a special issue to the topic, with a planned publication date of April 2020. The special issue will be jointly edited by Tereza Kuldova & Jardar Østbø.
some of the conference participants have expressed their interest in
contributing already, the Journal of Extreme Anthropology invites
additional papers (please refer to the CFP below), and submissions in
different formats: articles, essays, book reviews, photo essays, and experimental submissions.
Those who did not attend the conference and are interested in
submitting a paper should send an abstract of 250 words to the
editor-in-chief at: firstname.lastname@example.org by 15th of May 2019. Submission date for the issue and those whose abstracts have been accepted will be: 31st October 2019. Articles
