AAA 2015 logo

The Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness welcomes paper and

panel proposals for the American Anthropological Association meeting, 2015 in

Denver Colorado. Casting common sense in new light by making the familiar seem

strange and the strange seem familiar is a venerable strategy used across

anthropology’s subfields. This year, SAC invites participants to explore, in

particular, familiarity and strangeness in the context of neuroanthropology, which

emphasizes variation, brain plasticity, processes, and context. Topics related to

consciousness may include the following, although others topics are welcome:

  • Neuroanthropology of familiarity and strangeness
  • Liminality and in-betweeness
  • Ethnography of strangeness, “others”, or “othering”
  • Indigenous ways of knowing
  • Art and creative processes
  • Meditation and yoga
  • Ethnic, national, and political consciousness
  • Ethneogens and psychoactive substances

PROPOSALS DUE APRIL 15, 2015
