CFP: 7th CONGRESS OF THE PORTUGUESE ANTHROPOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION – APA

7th CONGRESS OF THE PORTUGUESE ANTHROPOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION (APA)
Lisbon, 5-8 June, 2019
(NOVA – School of Social Sciences and Humanities, Universidade Nova de Lisboa)
 
“2019”
The 7th APA congress aims to discuss the condition of being human and being in the world today, 2019. A year of a possible calendar among many other available. Without identifying themes, reference words, categories or classifications, 2019 marks a stage in the social and natural history of the planet. The openness suggested in an ‘untitled’ congress also points to an anthropology without conceptual, thematic or epistemological boundaries. It is life in itself that interests anthropology, anthropologies, thinking the gerund of human existence, others and the rest from multiple interpretive possibilities. After all, anthropology is practiced on everything and everyone in a project of knowledge that remains inexhaustible in terms of what exists and is to come.
By simply proposing 2019, APA recognizes that the terrain of anthropology goes beyond the most obvious – on the most immediate scales of perception possible from the condition of being human. In a time when we also talk about societal, anthropocentric, climate change or end of the world challenges, the intentionally open proposal is an invitation to think about everything that affects the past, present and future unequally lived by humans and nonhumans.
2019 marks the 30 years of APA as an Association that represents anthropology and anthropologists who speak Portuguese or who work in Portugal. It is a congress celebrating a journey seen as a process under construction and for which so many have contributed. May 2019 be the first of more 30 years of Portuguese anthropology in the world.
