Craiova, 28-30 november 2002
Dear Madam/Sir ,
It is our great pleasure to let you know that, from 28 to 30 November 2002,
it will take place in Craiova the International Conference in Ethnology and
Anthropology; AnthropoEast-The Anthropology of the South-Eastern Europe
in-between the reorganisation of the object and the methodological explosion.
Organised by the The Centre for Studies in Folklife and Traditional Culture
of the County of Dolj in co-operation with the Faculty of Letters of the
University of Craiova and The Department of Ethnography of the Museum of
Oltenia, our conferences aim is to create a debate framework for academics
both from Romania and from abroad, who are concerned with the (re-)defining
of the epistemological limits of the research field each of them cover.
The Conference will be divided in three large sections as follows:
Folkloristics: The perspectives of the "science": (in) dependence or
From the methodological rigour to the "academic" essay
Identity and Globalisation
Region and regionalization
Language and representations
Objective perception and cultural prejudice
Proteism and dispersion.
Without having any intention to cover the entire problems of the
anthropological research in the South-Eastern Europe, the
conference we organise is intended to be only a simple X-raying of the
discipline as it looks like at the beginning of the Century.
Papers will be given in English or French and they are not to exceed 20
minutes of time. In order to improve communication we are going to edit and
publish the volume of the conference, Symposia. Studies in Ethnology and
Anthropology, issue no. 2/2002 in advance, so that each participant should
have it in its conference portfolio. That is why the papers to be presented
during the conference, the in extenso copy, should be submitted to our
editorial board by October the 1st, 2002.
The submitters should send the papers to the publisher at the following
