University of St Andrews, St Andrews 24-27 August 2020
The Association of Social Anthropologists of the UK and Commonwealth’s 2020 conference will be hosted by the Department of Social Anthropology at the University of St Andrews.
The call for panels under the theme of Responsibility is now open. The call for panels will close on 15 December, and the call for papers will open on 1 February following panel selection by the conference committee.
Anthropology has a long history in St Andrews, dating from the beginning of Andrew Lang's scholarly career in the 1860s and culminating in the founding of an independent department in 1979. Since then, the Department has championed innovative ethnographic and historical scholarship. In 1992, Social Anthropology was incorporated as a Department within the School of Philosophical, Anthropological and Film Studies. The Department is also home to the Centre for Cosmopolitan Studies, the Centre for Amerindian, Latin American and Caribbean Studies, the Centre for Pacific Studies, and the Centre for Minorities Research.
We invite panels to be submitted under the following sub-themes:
- Who speaks, and for whom?
- Health, disease and wellbeing
- Morality and legality
- Irresponsibility and failure
