Future Anthropologies Network (FAN)

Future Anthropologies Network (FAN) is being established as an outcome of the work of the Anthropology at the Edge of the Future Lab held at the 2014 EASA conference. The intention of the group is to continue our shared work in conceptualizing, debating, theorizing and practicing an engaged anthropology that puts futures at the centre of its agenda. One of the key outcomes of our lab was to produce a manifesto, which captured and synthesised the feeling that we collectively took away from the lab. This document will form the basis of our work, and the point from which we will develop as a network.
