Just a short note - guess it was a typo: lke Mader is acutally Elke Mader, a viennese lecturer.
Corrected. Thanks Andrea.
I think I do have to comment on the workshop-reviews on the EASA-page: Not all of the reviewers seemed to have followed all of the papers fully-through. A few of the summaries just seem to be copy-pasted from the workshops abstracts and can’t be counted as reviews on the actually held papers as well as the following discussions and debates. I’m especially referring to the review of workshop W015: “Diversifying Anthropology: Politics of Research or Research in Politics?”
Both the Papers of Emilia Epstajn and Marija Licina on the ethnographic museum of Belgrade, and Kathleen Reedys paper on
HTS, AAA and the discussion on Ethics are more or less copies of the abstracts. Its not my intention to accuse the student of not doing their work properly, but especially the latter paper on HTS had more ( or , in some parts, less) to it than one could read in the abstract. Virtually no-one, not even the convenor of the workshop, A. Boscovic, seemed to be aware beforehand that the presenter was a member of the infamous “Human Terrain Team", defending her and her colleagues work with the US-military. Her “presentation” , and especially the discussion held afterwards belonged to the most vivid and controversial 30 minutes of the EASA-conference (in my oppinion). I hope to find the time, in the near future, to post some remarks and comments on the discussion held afterwards between the workshops attendants, including the current editor of Anthropology Today, Gustaaf Houtman, and Ms.Reedy.
Thanks for your comment. Writing reviews so fast has its price, it seems.
It would be VERY interesting to hear more about the HTS discussion!
