The Department of Anthropology presents a 2011 Anthropology in Transit Workshop Series event:
"Traces and Remainders"
Friday, April 8, 2011
10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Social and Behavioral Sciences Gateway (SBSG), Room 1517
The Department of Anthropology at the University of California, Irvine invites participation in the third installment of our “Anthropology in Transit” workshop series, which creatively leverages the extraordinary concentration of cutting-edge anthropological scholarship in Southern California. This workshop will build on the successes of the two day-long, commuter-friendly symposia held during the 2009-2010 academic year. The department is pleased to continue this forum, informally termed the “405/91/5 workshops,” as a means of promoting dialogue between colleagues in the region. The workshop will provide an opportunity for graduate students to present papers, discuss their work, and expand possibilities for anthropological research, contributing overall to a regional community of young scholars, as well as strengthened networking with faculty in Southern California.
The first two Anthropology in Transit workshops focused on various modes of movement and shifts; this spring’s workshop builds on these conversations by providing graduate students the opportunity to explore that which “remains.” This workshop asks what new insights arise when we attend to what is, in one or another sense, left behind.
Registration is free. For further information or to RSVP, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by April 1st.
