The Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness welcomes paper and panel proposals for the American Anthropological Association meeting, 2015 in Denver Colorado. Casting common sense in new light by making the familiar seem strange and the strange seem familiar is a venerable strategy used across anthropology's subfields. This year, SAC invites participants to explore, in particular, familiarity and strangeness in the context of neuroanthropology, which emphasizes variation, brain plasticity, processes, and context. Topics related to consciousness may include the following, although others topics are welcome:
Neuroanthropology of familiarity and strangeness
Liminality and in--betweeness
Ethnography of strangeness, “others”, or “othering”
Indigenous ways of knowing
Art and creative processes
Meditation and yoga
Ethnic, national, and political consciousness
Ethneogens and psychoactive substances
Proposals must be submitted by April 15, 2015.
Please contact Program Chair Mark Flanagan (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions.
To register and submit proposals online, please visit AAA’s website at: http://www.aaanet.org/meetings/
