EASA's biennial conference takes place this summer in the beautiful capital of Estonia, at the Estonian Institute of Humanities, Tallinn University. The Scientific Committee have been working hard to ensure this will be an exciting event and it looks set to attract over 1000 colleagues from across the globe.

Read the theme, the keynote and plenaries, the accepted panels and papers; learn about the innovative new laboratories; marvel at the film programme; read about the numerous events taking place during the confeence; view and download the conference logo, poster or web banner for print and/or display on your own website or institution. Visit the timetable page and consider the excursions you could indulge in during/after the event. Enjoy the abstract of Elizabeth Povinelli's keynote.

All delegates must be registered for the event and have paid their invoices for membership and conference ahead of the event.

Download the handy Travel information summary (PDF) to help you reach the reception desk. For help getting your bearings in Tallinn, take a look at the Tallinn University campus map (PDF) and the map of Tallinn on the travel page.

Download the printed conference programme as either a PDF or EPUB. (Please note these are equivalent to the printed book delegates receive at reception and so have the same inaccuracies as a result of subsequent withdrawals.)

EASA2014 is also providing spaces for producing and presenting ethnographic works that are not exclusively based on text-based conventions, but that are constituted through visual, acoustic, performative, and other forms of experience-based knowledge. We are calling these spaces Laboratories in order to recall experimental practises and activities. Laboratories aim to explore methodological and epistemological possibilities of carrying out and presenting anthropological research using non-text based forms, hopefully with an interactive and collaborative component.

There is also an additional film programme of EASA's AMCE network.
