WORLD ANTHROPOLOGICAL UNION

CONGRESS 2024​

Call for Workshops

Deadline: 06 May 2024

To participate in this call you must register and access to WAU Congress System

We welcome two kinds of workshops.  One is a practical educational session where participants learn new skills or methods. They are guided by an expert who illustrates how to perform something, after which participants typically get to try out the new abilities or methods for themselves.  The other invites conveners to experiment with or approach questions through multimodal and sense-scape work that is non-textual, alternate, innovative and immersive.  We welcome formats such as performance, poetic, visual, aromatic, tactile, video, auto-, fictional, and experimental forms of ethnography. 

Workshops are in person only.

Workshops are in English only.
