WCAA Sister Association News

- First issue of new WCAA journal, Déjà Lu online
This journal consists of reprints of articles (as chosen by their editors) from journals published by WCAA member associations and aims at pluralizing the dissemination of anthropological knowledge on a global level. We look forward to Déjà Lu becoming bigger in future issues; for now, we are proud to finally have a common platform, whereby we can all easily read anthropologies from around the world in a single forum.
See: http://www.wcaanet.org/dejalu

Please disseminate this news on your websites and to your e-lists; and do get in touch with us if you have any comments or queries!

- Anthropology Southern Africa Annual Conference
Mutuality and Its Limits
Hosted by the Wits Anthropology Department
6-8 September 2013
University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa

Preliminary call for papers and panels:
How do people take others into account? What do we find interesting in other lives, and how do they become valuable, trivial, threatening, obscure or puzzling to us? How do our capacities for recognizing other lives depend on the work of particular kinds of social forms, relations, mediations and representations? A renewed interest in these elementary questions about mutuality has produced a wealth of new thinking in the humanities and human sciences in recent years. Questions about the conditions and the limits of mutuality are also of major importance for our understanding of pressing issues to do with inequality, solidarity, hospitality and violence.

For this year’s ASnA Conference, to be hosted by Wits Anthropology on 6-8 September 2013 in Johannesburg, we invite proposals for papers and panels broadly addressing the theme of ‘mutuality and its limits’. Within this rubric, we especially encourage participants to consider the ways in which new work in African anthropology is reorienting and revitalizing the discipline.

Proposals should include name, affiliation, paper/panel title and an abstract of no more than 250 words. For panel proposals, please include a list of prospective participants if these have already been identified. Proposals should be sent to asnaconference2013 gmail.com.
Deadline: 1 June 2013.

- ASAA/NZ conferences and journal
This year’s conference will be hosted by University of Waikato, at Raglan, a very picturesque little town on the wild west coast, Dec 1-3, with a theme of ““Ethnoscapes, Culturescapes: Anthropologies for the present”.” Contact Fiona McCormack.
Next years (2014) conference will be a combined one, with AAS (Australia), hosted by University of Otago and will be held at (even more picturesque) Queenstown, among the mountains in the South Island. Dates and other details will be announced in due course.
Our journal (of anthropology and cultural studies) SITES, continues to grow and flourish. Contributions are invited, from any discipline, but with a regional scope of “the Pacific” (broadly defined).

- AAA has launched a new website: This Is Anthropology
This Is Anthropology was created for students, parents and the general public to learn more about what anthropology is and what anthropologists do in simple, accessible language. The site allows anthropologists from around the world to share a photo and a brief “blurb” about their work along with their contact information. Visitors to the site can then enter a location anywhere in the world and find anthropologists who are working in that area.

Though still at the beta stage of development, the site currently includes an overview of the discipline of anthropology, the skills and careers of anthropologists, advice on how to become an anthropologist, and an interactive map displaying anthropology projects in different parts of the world. Visitors to the website will learn about the kinds of jobs anthropologists have, the skill sets we employ, the kinds of research questions we ask, and how anthropologists around the globe are attempting to better understand what it means to be human. We hope this visual display of the work of many and varied anthropologists will convey to visitors the critical thinking, productive approaches to diversity, effective written and oral communication, and technical skills that are central to the work of anthropologists.

We need the profiles of as many anthropologists as possible to demonstrate the breadth and importance of our work!

Before promoting the site to a broader audience, we need our members to add their profile to the map. It’s quick and easy to add your information. You can add photos and links, flag your research site on the map, and share information about your research. Simply visit this link: http://www.thisisanthropology.com/i... to share your work with the world!

- Irish Journal of Anthropology is putting out an open call for submissions.
The Irish Journal of Anthropology (IJA) is a biannual publication of the Anthropological Association of Ireland (AAI). The AAI and IJA seek to promote the discipline of Anthropology throughout the island of Ireland, both North and South, by providing coverage of anthropological research and issues regarding Ireland and anthropological discipline in general. It endeavours to be of interest not only to anthropologists and those engaged in academia but to those interested and engaged in various related fields, including but not limited to Archaeology, Cultural Studies, Development Studies, Ethnology and Folk Studies, Gaeilge, Irish Studies, and Sociology.

- CFP extended deadline 1 July 2013
Teaching Amidst Change conference, 5-6 September 2013, 15 Norham Gardens, Department of Education, University of Oxford

This two-day conference on teaching and learning anthropology will explore how we employ anthropological approaches, insights and debates within conversations about current events. We invite also ethnographic reflections on the role that ‘change’ may play within the classroom, the university, in the field and within the discipline. Are transformations, or ‘crises’, teachable in anthropology? What are their implications for academic research, teaching and learning across a pan-European anthropological community? What is the role for anthropological teaching and learning in articulating or engaging with ‘change’?

Keynote speakers: Professor Susana Narotzky (University of Barcelona) and Professor Sue Wright (Aarhus University)

Please submit abstracts between 400-500 words by 1 July 2013 to: editorsteachinganthropology gmail.com
