Global Meet-up on Economic Anthropology

Dear all – Please consider attending.

The Global Meeting for Economic Anthropology is an attempt to make visible the breadth and depth of research in the sub-discipline today. Economic anthropologists make contributions to a wide range of contemporary scholarship in and beyond anthropology. Since the global financial crisis of 2007/08, the sub-discipline has gathered momentum, making critical interventions in academia, and in the world. The critical energy of Black Lives Matter, Ni Una Menos, and other powerful movements has led to increased collaboration between economic anthropologists across the globe. However, the scale and shape of the sub-discipline seems difficult to grasp for many.

Hence, as convenors of the EASA Network Anthropology of Economy, we hereby provide a platform for exploring contemporary economic anthropology. On June 30th and July 1st, we will host two virtual events to showcase, network, and to share experiences, themes, and knowledge in and about the sub-discipline. These meetings are intended as an exploration. Those asked to speak will provide lead-ins into regional knowledges and contemporary themes, intended to spark conversation amongst the audience in a spirit of exploring, engaging, and sharing.

We warmly welcome all those who consider themselves a part of (or interested in) economic anthropology to join the meetings and to share their perspectives of the sub-discipline. Please consider spreading the word about this event to increase the chances of those interested in economic anthropology joining in! Thanks.
