We are proud to announce the 9th annual hybrid (onsite+online) event Why the World Needs Anthropologists. A symposium that explores the different applications of anthropology beyond traditional academia.
At the next edition – Mobilising the Planet
we aim to create a collective movement to confront some of the most pressing and challenging global issues of our time.
SOCIAL MOVEMENTS / SOCIAL JUSTICE / ECOLOGY / HOUSING / MIGRATION / RESISTANCE / PROTEST / APPLIED RESEARCH / COLLABORATION
In an era of multilayered global crisis, witnessing amplified racial biases, segregation, inequality, polarisation, and the collapse of our democratic institutions and of our geosphere, we will create space for cooperation, inspiration and mutual learning.
We want to discuss and act on current social movements: how they emerge, disseminate and create space for different ways of socio-cultural transformation across the globe.
The goal is to mobilize our discipline in connection with those who act as civic activists in the domains of housing and migration justice, feminist and environmental movements. The goal is to give something back – our expertise and energy, to learn from each other and embark on new collaborative projects.
Mobilising the Planet welcomes people from different backgrounds to share their stories, ideas and experiences. Following the paradigm shift from anthropocentric to life-centric, we want to discuss how to create sustainable and liveable futures for different forms of life across the planet Earth, by quitting the reduction of human and non-human life to mere resources to be exploited at our will.
Communication language: English
The final programme will be released the last week of August, 2021.
