VANDA - Call for Sessions



Vienna Anthropology Days | IKSA, Universität Wien

Deadline: 01.02.2018


We are pleased to announce the CALL FOR SESSIONS for the VIENNA ANTHROPOLOGY DAYS (VANDA), which will take place in Vienna from September 19 through September 22, 2018.

VANDA is the successor event of the former TAGE DER KSA and is a joint effort between the Institute of Social Anthropology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ISA), the Weltmuseum, and the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology of the University of Vienna (IKSA). It is intended to take place biannually and will be organized each time by one of these institutions. IKSA will be the host for 2018.

VANDA is an international conference that is designed for the active involvement of young researchers. It therefore includes a YOUNG SCHOLARS’ FORUM and local students will have the opportunity to provide input by being part of the STUDENT ORGANIZING COMMITTEE.

The CALL FOR SESSIONS has just started (the deadline for submissions is February 1, 2018) and offers several session formats and network opportunities. For the interaction between young and experienced scholars, we would like to encourage you to participate in the VANDA MENTORS' EXCHANGE, which was created to connect mentors with mentees.

For further information please consult the VANDA homepage:

Please feel free to spread the word. We hope for your active participation and contribution and are looking forward to meeting you at VANDA in 2018.
