ASA2021. Online, 29 March - 2 April 2021
Online, 29 March - 2 April 2021
The ASA2021 Laboratories (Labs) programme provides spaces and opportunities for participants to explore the conference themes in sessions that differ from traditional paper panels. With more flexible and experimental formats, these sessions open-up new methodological, ethical and epistemological possibilities for anthropological theory and practice. Labs therefore explore the conference theme of ‘Responsibility’ in reflexive and innovative ways by allowing for interaction, dialogue and collaboration between the convenors and participants.
This year, several Labs sit at the intersection of Art and Anthropology to provide practice-based, collaborative and creative ways of addressing questions of authorship, responsible representation, and communication.
Other sessions provide spaces in which to foster open dialogues on experiences of responsibility in anthropological practice and of translating ethnography into ‘evidence’. Finally, the programme also includes sessions which will bring together scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds to discuss intersections of the Medical Humanities and Animal Studies. We are therefore delighted to announce this exciting programme of interdisciplinary Labs which address wide-ranging themes through diverse formats.
The Labs programme, like all elements of the ASA2021, will be run virtually. Please note that some Labs have limited capacity and pre-registration is be required.
