Call for Laboratories

The European Association of Social Anthropologists (EASA) is calling for proposals for the production of research-based creative works, with interactive and collaborative components, for its upcoming biennial conference in Tallinn, Estonia to be held from 31st July - 3rd August, 2014.

EASA2014 will provide spaces for producing and presenting ethnographic works that are not exclusively based on text-based conventions, but that are constituted through visual, acoustic, performative, and other forms of experience-based knowledge.

We are calling these spaces "Laboratories" in order to recall experimental practises and activities. The intention of these Laboratories is to explore methodological and epistemological possibilities of carrying out and presenting anthropological research using non-text based forms.

We are particularly looking for proposals with an interactive and collaborative component. Laboratories can be organised either as closed events (stating the names of the participants), or as invitations for individual submissions (which the respective Laboratory’s convener will be able to choose from among potential contributors).

Hello Fabiano,

In a certain way,  my research is related to your interests.  I've been searching the meanings invested in the so called " folk art" in Portugal for several years. My PHD was about the ethnographic politics in the thirties and forties, when folk art was a main symbl of national identity politics. Currently I'm interested in the new representations surrounding traditional portuguese artifacts. Hope we can talk about these subjects. Best regards

I am interested in museums as an open space for public documentation. I wonder if anyone in this group is interested in looking at the development of museums and history of museumization.
