Local Node, Displacments Conference hosted by NIAS and Bangalore Research Network at NIAS Conference Hall, 1600hrs
Displacements are in the air: episodes of profound political upheaval, intensified crises of migration and expulsion, the disturbing specter of climatic and environmental instability, countless virtual shadows cast over the here and now by ubiquitous media technologies. What does it mean to live and strive in the face of such movements? What social and historical coordinates are at stake with these challenges? And what kind of understanding can anthropology contribute to the displacements of this time—given, especially, that our most essential techniques like ethnography are themselves predicated on the heuristic value of displacement, on what can be gleaned from the experience of unfamiliar circumstances?
Please join us for the local node of the "Displacements" conference at NIAS Conference Hall II on April 20, at 4 pm, for conference screenings and on-site multimedia presentations responding to the theme of displacements from academics, practitioners, and conservators. Details here. The event requires a sign up here.
Hope to see you!
