The annual conference of the Australian Anthropological Society will be held from 23 November to 26 November 2022 at Deakin University.
The Australian Anthropology Society's 2022 conference invites panels and papers that respond to the notion of 'Life Support'. This theme draws our attention to the principles, processes, activities, and ideologies of humans and non-humans who variously foster, care for, legitimise, frustrate, and explicitly reject particular forms of life.
Through this theme we invite panels, papers, events, provocations and performances that explore the strengths, gaps and frailties of anthropology as a practice, a discipline, a legacy, a strategy, a tool, a trope, and as a life.
All session lengths will be 105 minutes (that’s 1 hour and 45 minutes!).
