Joint conference of the Anthropology of Crime and Criminalisation (AnthroCrime)
and the Anthropology of Security (ASN) EASA networks.
When: 17-19 May 2022
Where: University of Bologna, Department of History and Cultures (DISCI)
As a result of current social, political and economic trends, anthropologists are
increasingly interested in security, crime, and criminalisation. The first jointly
organised conference between the Anthropology of Crime and Criminalisation
(AnthroCrime) and the Anthropology of Security (ASN) EASA networks aims to
explore crime and security, developing novel methodological and theoretical
approaches to their analysis.
In addition to several panels (see the full list here) related to the anthropology of
crime and security, the conference will hold a workshop, a laboratory and a book
presentation session. The laboratory will be dedicated to the challenges of doing
ethnography in the field of security and crime, while the workshop aims to facilitate
future publications based on conference papers.
Deadline for papers submission and pre-registrations: 5 March 2022.
