Call for Papers: Anthropocene Transitions AAS Conference 2016

Call for papers for the 2016 Australian Anthropological Society Conference at the University of Sydney is now open.

The call for papers for the 2016 Australian Anthropological Society Conference is now open and authors wishing to present at the conference are invited to submit an abstract of their original work for consideration.

The conference will be held at the University of Sydney from 12 – 15 December 2016. The conference is hosted by the Department of Anthropology, School of Social and Political Sciences at The University of Sydney in partnership with the Australian Anthropological Society (AAS).

This year’s conference engages with the Anthropocene, which goes to the heart of anthropological enquiry. This conference calls on anthropologists to bring our skills, knowledge and wisdom to bear on a fleeting and fragile moment in the human career, when the species condition of Anthropos intersects with the transitional epoch of the Anthropocene.

Anthropological research engages with lifeworlds in transformation but must now come to terms with the particular challenges that humans face in adapting to this current epoch and its seemingly finite horizon. The conference will address a number of sub-themes within ‘Anthropocene transitions’. For more information: click here
