Ethnographic Futures

Washington University in St. Louis is hosting the 2019 Annual Spring Meeting of the American Ethnological Society (AES), oldest professional anthropological organization in the U.S. founded in 1842. The conference theme is Ethnographic Futures.  Five years after protests in Ferguson around racialized police brutality, plenaries, paper sessions, and roundtables reflect and theorize possible unfoldings of the future in specific locales and explore how people with whom we study and collaborate imagine, create, participate, and refuse. The conference is co-hosted by the Association of Latina/o Anthropologists (ALLA) and Association of Black Anthropologists (ABA). The conference will be held Thursday, March 14th to Saturday, March 16th. Registration is open until the end of the conference.
