Papers are sought for a workshop entitled “Emergent Nature/Cultures,” hosted by the Department of Anthropology at the University of Minnesota. Papers should address the nature/culture thematic, but contributors may interpret this as they see fit.
The purpose of the workshop is to prepare manuscripts for inclusion in a new journal, tentatively entitled “After Culture: Emergent Anthropologies,” intended as an international graduate student journal (although it will publish faculty contributions as well). The workshop will only accept 16 papers for inclusion, 10 of these being earmarked for publication in the first two issues of “After Culture.” Full drafts of the manuscript (20-30 pages) must be made available by September 8th for other workshop participants; contributors are expected to participate in all of the workshop’s sessions.
Following the workshop, participants will have until March 2006 to revise their manuscripts, at which point they will pass through the traditional peer review process for inclusion in “After Culture.” The first issue of “After Culture” is planned for release in September 2006.
Funds are being sought from the University of Minnesota to support travel and lodging for participants. The dates for the workshop are tentatively planned for September 24-25th, although the schedules of participants will be taken into consideration.
Abstracts of 300-350 words with a tentative title should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 22nd. Decisions regarding the inclusion of papers in the workshop will be made by July 29th.
