EASA2020 will take place virtually. This announcement from the EASA President explains why. Participants will be able to find full information on the information page regarding how to navigate the online platform, later this week.

Early Bird registration is open and will end on 29 June. So register now.

Shindig platform
The conference will be run using the software platform (Shindig). Nearly 700 colleagues already attended a number of acquaintaince sessions to see the possibilities and restrictions of the format. There is a full set of resources online, so that those who want to look (again) at Shindig can do so; the resources include information about synchronous/asynchronous/mixed formats, a guide to pre-recording your presentations, the recording policy for the event, and guidelines on accessibility.

Field/Works. Kaleidoscopic activities between anthropology and art

The AntArt network seeks contributions – projects in any medium – for inclusion in the first ANTART Network Exhibition at EASA. See the AntArt sub-site for more information. Deadline for submissions is 30/05.

Through a generous award from the Wenner-Gren Foundation, supplemented by EASA money, funds will be available to support delegate participation. The organisers have now contacted all applicants with the results of that call.
