Loss & Hope: Contemporary debates in Environmental Anthropology

Oct 18, 2018 to Oct 19, 2018



Loss and hope

A networking meeting hosted by the working group on environmental anthropology of the German Association of Social and Cultural Anthropologists (DGSKA), Kiel University and the University of Tübingen

This networking meeting for researchers focusing on environmental anthropology takes a productive tension between such recent diagnoses of loss and persistent hopes in betterment as starting point to open up our discussions: What does taking loss in relation to the environment seriously imply for anthropologists and how does this relate to projects that try to instill hope? To what extent are these undertakings desirable or risky? What affective attachments to hope or loss prevail in our fields of inquiry?
The main goals of this meeting are twofold:

1.    To open a space for the discussion of key current issues in the broader field of environmental anthropology, and
2.    To enable networking among members and scouting for interest for writing joint funding proposals and other academic collaborations.
