why the world needs anthropologists

Why the World needs Anthropologists

Coming out of the Ivory Tower.

This international symposium attempts to erase the boundary between “pure” and “applied” anthropology, and presents opportunities for establishing long-lasting cooperation between academics and practitioners.

Contemporary demands give us no time to get stuck by internal tensions and divisions within the discipline – anthropologists need to come out of their “ivory towers” and come to terms with the increasingly prominent economic, political and ecological challenges of our world.

The event is free of charge but registration via email is mandatory:, email Meta Gorup (meta.gorup@ugent.be).

Location: Centro Culturale Altinate/San Gaetano, Padua, Italy

The Social and Cultural Anthropology Department is part of the organizing committee.
