I’m really excited about this, especially as I’ve been involved in the latter stages of organising it.
 
Being an Anthropologist in Academia and Beyond
Tuesday 8 November, 10:00-17:00, SOAS in G2
 
In inviting participants to think ethnographically about their working lives in the academy and beyond, the workshop aims to discuss the impact of emerging audit cultures, institutional conditions, and webs of power on the ways anthropologists work and produce knowledge. Since at least the 1980s, anthropologists have persuasively critiqued the politics of fieldwork and representation, but they have largely ignored the actual circumstances and structures under which they write and work. Rather than providing definitive plans for future action, the workshop hopes to foster a platform for discussing how anthropologists see their own role and practice in an increasingly corporate-oriented world of knowledge making. Speakers include: Brendan Donegan, Richard Fardon, Gustaaf Houtman, Julia Howe, Jeremy Keenan, Chris Knight, Caroline Osella, Kathryn Tomlinson.
