Teaching Amidst Change

5-6 September 2013, 15 Norham Gardens, Department of Education, University of Oxford, UK

Joint http://www.teachinganthropology.org/">Teaching Anthropology (TA), a journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute and http://www.easaonline.org/networks/teaching/index.shtml">EASA Teaching Anthropology Network (TAN) Conference

Public sector reforms on a national scale are being forced on European states struggling to sustain their financial systems. Funding for academic research and learning is curtailed and various reforms in response to the current financial crises unravel in academia. For more than a decade, European universities and anthropology departments have also been restructured by the Bologna process. Are such transformations, or ‘crises’, teachable in anthropology? What are their implications for academic research, teaching and learning across a pan-European anthropological community? What is the role for anthropological teaching and learning in articulating or engaging with ‘change’?

This two-day conference on teaching and learning anthropology will explore how we employ anthropological approaches, insights and debates within conversations about current events. We invite also ethnographic reflections on the role that ‘change’ may play within the classroom, the university, in the field and within the discipline.
