CFP Anthropology Matters!

Call for Papers

Anthropology Matters!

The theme for the AAA annual conference for 2017, in Washington DC, is a

call to action for anthropologists across all subfields of the discipline.

The AAA is asking its membership to demonstrate the relevance of its

research and the application of anthropology for understanding and

improving the human condition.

 

For SAC members, this is a perfect continuation of the conversation we are

starting in California this spring with our Transforming Energy into Action

conference.

 

This is a call for panels/workshops/events that involves consciousness in

translation, investigation, influence, and action.

Potential panel topics may include but are not limited to:

 The Anthropocene

 Social Consciousness and Action

 Political Consciousness and Protest

 Consciousness and the Environment

 Anthropology and Activism

 

Mark Flanagan and Sydney Yeager are the coordinators for the SAC

program at the AAAs. If you have ideas for panels, roundtable

discussions, or workshops, please contact us at:

markwflanagan1@gmail.com or sydneyyeager@gmail.com

AAA 2015 logo

The Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness welcomes paper and

panel proposals for the American Anthropological Association meeting, 2015 in

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

CALL FOR PAPERS
Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness
Annual Conference March 26-28 2015
McMenamins Edgefield, Troutdale Oregon

In the conclusion of an interview, the French philosopher Michel Foucault once pointed to the necessity of dreams and reflected on the dangers presented when “dreams dry up.” The 2015 Annual Meeting of the Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness will discuss the current “state of dreaming.” We will investigate, explore, discuss, and celebrate the state of dreaming on individual and collective levels. We would also like to engage with the ideas of dreaming as a vital tool of survival and as a radical act for the transformation of consciousness. The Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness
welcomes paper and panel proposals for its March 26-28, 2015 meeting in Portland, Oregon. We encourage submission of interdisciplinary and collaborative works. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

o Art and creativity
o Dreams and indigenous ways of knowing
o Dreams as a tool for survival
o Ethnic, national, and political consciousness
