Network meeting in Stockholm

by admin on August 12, 2018

The Anthropology network within EASA is holding its network meeting at the following date:

Day: Wednesday August 15, 2018
Time: 17:00-18:45,
Room: SÖ-E420

Today, “security” is everywhere – as also a look through this years’ conference abstracts shows. We believe that Social Anthropology has an important contribution to make and created the Anthropology of Security network in 2014 in order to bring together interested scholars.

We would like to invite “old and new” colleagues to join the meeting, open to everyone interested, and hope to see you in Stockholm!

Among other things we will be holding a little election for new convenors, as Mark, Catarina and Nils are ending their terms. Come and join us, be part of the network and shape its future.
