The 10th international SIEF congress will take place in Lisbon, 17-21 April 2011.
SIEF is an international organization that facilitates and stimulates cooperation among scholars working within European Ethnology, Folklore Studies, Cultural Anthropology and adjoining fields. The conference is being organised by CRIA (Centre for Research in Anthropology) from Portugal which comprises over 200 researchers, including both Portuguese and international scholars.
Registration will open 1st December. Fees will be €250 for non-members, €170 for members and €80 for students. This includes three lunches, coffee during the breaks and the opening reception. The conference dinner will be an optional extra. There will be day-registrations available.
The congress will take place at the Faculty of Social and Human Sciences of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, Av. de Berna 26, in central Lisbon. The keynote speeches will take place (in principle) at the Gulbenkian Foundation, 5 minutes walk and on the same street as the congress' main venue.
We have a large range of panels and workshops, covering a wide variety of topics within the main theme of the congress, “People make places: ways of feeling the world“, and the three sub-themes: “Shaping lives”; “Creativity and emotions”; and “Ecology and ethics“. Before making your proposal, please read the descriptions of the theme and sub-themes, and then browse the panels/workshops to find a suitable home for your work.
SIEF has secured a small amount of funding from the Wenner-Gren Fund which will be used to assist the participation of scholars. We will post an online application form, once decisions have been made over papers.
