Intersections of Humanitarianism

The workshop brings together cultural anthropologists from all over Europe, US, and Latin America to discuss what sort of hybrids emerge when, instead of maintaining its boundaries, humanitarianism becomes a part of a loose network of aid that moves throughout the world and replaces, suspends, or otherwise sidesteps state sovereignties in an attempt to save lives. The workshop participants will discuss the kinds of politics that such hybrids enable or prevent. What types of social dynamics, positions, and exclusions take place in such cases? What does humanitarianism look like when it intersects with the state and the military? Or with the vernacular ways of giving? The workshop will be the first meeting of the Anthropology of Humanitarianism Network (AHN). The network was founded in 2018 by the European Association of Social Anthropologists (EASA) with an aim to provide a platform for a broad discussion on the meanings and practices of humanitarianism and on the possible future directions of an anthropological study of humanitarianism.

The workshop will take place from 01-03 November 2019.

Please register by sending an email to cemig@uni-goettingen.de until 28 October 2019. No registration is necessary for attending the keynote lecture.
