Subject: Call for Session Proposals: Twelfth International Conference on Hunting and Gathering Societies (due 7 September 2017)

Dear Anthromob members,
Apologies for cross-posting.
I'd like to draw your attention to the Twelfth International Conference on Hunting and Gathering Societies (CHAGS XII), to be held 23-27 July 2018 at Universiti Sains Malaysia, Penang. The Call for Sessions is open now.
More information below and on our website: chags.usm.my.
Mobility is a historical concern for hunter-gatherer researchers, as for this discussion group. There is some crossover of concepts and concerns, which I hope to see explored further at CHAGS XII. Even if you don't work with hunter-gatherers, I hope you'll take an interest in the conference and maybe even propose sessions and papers.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. And do join our mailing list (email and/or WhatsApp) for conference news and updates.
Do help us to spread the word. I attach some advertising graphics, which you can paste into websites, blogs, Tweets, and other media. 
Thank you. tp

Call for Session Proposals: Twelfth International Conference on Hunting and Gathering Societies (due 7 September 2017) “Situations, Times, and Places in Hunter-Gatherer Research” TWELFTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON HUNTING AND GATHERING SOCIETIES (CHAGS XII) 23–27 July 2018School of Social Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia, Penang Website: https://chags.usm.my          Contact: chags2018@gmail.com Convenor:Lye Tuck-Po, School of Social Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia Organisation:INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY OF HUNTER GATHERER RESEARCH (ISHGR) Hosted by:SCHOOL OF SOCIAL SCIENCES, UNIVERSITI SAINS MALAYSIA  Now open!Submission by online form only: https://goo.gl/forms/ ghcDs1WqHeFOCACF2.Closing date: 7 September 2017 (11:59 PM Kuala Lumpur time)  CHAGS conferences generate intellectual exchange, advance knowledge of the lives and times of hunter-gatherers in the past, present, and future, and have made significant contributions to anthropological theory. CHAGS X (Liverpool, 2013) and CHAGS XI (Vienna, 2015) attracted unprecedented numbers of first-timers and students interested in hunter-gatherer societies and the dynamics and conditions of their lives, and offered the promise of new disciplinary crossways, concerns, and approaches. The objective of CHAGS XII is to push this momentum forward and to expand the social spaces of knowledge sharing and production. We aim to cultivate not just diversity in concept-building but good practices of working with and relating to hunter-gatherers. As with previous conferences, the scope of CHAGS XII is broadly global and its perspective is towards the long-term. We welcome proposals for sessions that seek ways to go beyond geographical and disciplinary specialisms, and that promote new pathways of knowledge production. We invite participants to reflect on “situations, times, and places” whether integratively (as a springboard for general theoretical reflections on their interconnections) or separately (as discrete themes and topics), and to examine the intersections of time and place with fieldwork and theorising across the many concerns of hunter-gatherer research. This last will include the time-space compressions of the digital age, which are changing everyday experiences everywhere. The Call for Sessions is now open. The Call for Papers will open from October to December. Conference registration will start in January 2018.
