Subject: Call of papers: Association for Southeast European Anthropology
To all future members and friends of the Association for Southeast European
Invitation and Call for Papers
on December 10 - 12, 1999, an initiative group consisting of Milena
Benovska, Glenn Bowman, Christian Giordano, Deema Kaneff, Karl Kaser,
Vintila Mihailescu, Karin Norman, and Klaus Roth convened in Bucharest and
founded the International Association for Southeast European Anthropology
(InASEA). It succeeds the Association for Balkan Anthropology (ABA).
The founding committee kindly invites you to participate in the first
general assembly and conference of InASEA in Sofia and to present a paper.
The broad topic of the conference is
The Anthropology of Southeast Europe - Ten Years After.
Socio-Cultural Aspects of Transformation
The conference will be held on Sept. 14-17, 2000, at the Bulgarian Academy
of Sciences in Sofia. The organs of the association will be elected at the
general assembly of members. The language of the general assembly of
members will be English, while the languages of the conference are English,
French, and German.
The conference shall focus (1) on the cultural changes themselves and (2)
on the disciplines studying them. It will therefore discuss the following
- the study of the socio-cultural consequences of the transformation
processes in SEE, particularly the transformation of (socialist) everyday
- phenomena of contemporary (post-socialist) everyday culture and popular
- the change of paradigm in the study of ethnicity and ethnic groups,
as well as
- the status and the role of the cultural sciences (ethnology, cultural and
social anthropology, folklore, ethnography, historical anthropology) in
- the process of transformation (in subject matter, methods, theories,
approaches) which these disciplines are undergoing in research and teaching
in order to overcome the legacy of the past and to develop into a modern
ethnology and/or social anthropology.
The Südosteuropa-Gesellschaft has granted financial support; further
applications for funds are pending. Accommodation and travel expenses
(train, bus) of participants from AL, BiH, BG, HR, MK, RO and YU can
probably be paid for.
