We are pleased to announce a one day workshop on :

Pilgrimages, Ontologies, and Subjectivities in Neoliberal Economies,

to be held at the School of Global Studies, Department of Social
Anthropology, University of Sussex, UK on July 18th 2016. We are able
to offer partial funding for travel/accommodation.


Sites of pilgrimage and heritage tourism are often sites of social
inequality, volatility, and
impaired by historical hostilities between historical, ethnic and
competing religious discourses
of morality, personhood, culture, as well as imaginaries of
nationalism and citizenship. These
pilgrim sites are often much older in national and global history than
the country as a modern
sovereign nation-state. Underlying these sites of worship, pilgrimage,
religion and piety are also
pertinent issues to do with finance such as local regimes of taxation,
livelihoods, and the wealth
of regional and national economies where these pilgrimage sites are located.

In this workshop, we discuss the ways pilgrimages are imbricated in
local, national and
transnational economies. We ask questions such as:

1. What are pilgrimage travel arrangements comprised of, and who has
control over the distribution of public resources and facilities such
as roads, housing, accommodation, and transportation?

2. What do such developments reveal about recent changes in these
historical places?

3. How are discourses and practices about money interrelated with
those about religion and divinity in pilgrimage sites?

4. How are neoliberal economies bolstered by these pilgrim sites
through heritage tourism?

5. How are subjectivities transformed in the context of pilgrimage in
neoliberal economies?


The workshop will also focus on the worshippers' own subjectivity
especially of holy sites as being situated in their imaginations of
historical continuity and discontinuity and their transformative
experiences of worshiping using both modern and traditional forms of
infrastructures.

We would like to discuss the infrastructures that facilitate ͚the holy
experiences͛ of the pilgrim
sites while also appropriating local and international demands for
modernizing pilgrimage
experiences for visitors who range from being local, national,
international, tourists, and the
diaspora. We welcome papers that are situated and/or ethnographic.

Please send an abstract upto 300 words, queries for being
discussants, or propose panels to pilgrimeconomies@sussex.ac.uk by
10th JUNE, 2016.

Take the public anthropology challenge with SAPIENS and Allegra Lab

Will the Next Margaret Mead Please Stand Up? The SAPIENS-Allegra
Competition to Discover New Public Anthropologists

The anthropologist is a peculiar creature. We study the world, yet too
often do not share our insights with the world.

Our work explores some of the most exciting and relevant issues that face
humanity. We study our collective origins, the origins of violence,
economic injustice, health disparities, our relations to family,
constructions of "race," education systems, how cities organize themselves,
how we talk, climate change, emerging digital worlds, and so much more. But
all too often we conclude our research into these vitally important topics
with texts that are accessible only to a narrow group of academics.

To encourage anthropologists to write about their work for a broader
audience Allegra and SAPIENS have partnered to launch a competition for
more engaged types of anthropological writing.

We invite submissions for timely and engaging articles that are accessible
yet authoritative, exciting yet not sensationalistic. In particular, we
welcome narrative-driven submissions that will appeal to a broad, adult
college-educated readership, while demonstrating how anthropology
contributes to a shared understanding of our world.

The contribution that most aptly fits these criteria will be awarded 1.000
USD, and 500 USD each for second and third prize. The best pieces will be
published in 2016 in SAPIENS and Allegra.

Anthropologists, more than other scientists, hold a pivotal role in
improving our common understanding of our increasingly complex world.
However, too often we hide our message behind a veil of obscure jargon,
murky narrative, and muddled theoretical convolutions—all to the great
detriment of our discipline. As experts who investigate the complexity of
our contemporary world, we are ideally positioned to become its narrators.
Now, let's start writing!

Rules
Anyone who holds a degree in anthropology (undergraduate or graduate), or
is currently enrolled in an anthropology degree program, may enter the
competition
The subject may cover any branch of anthropology.
Contributions can be single authored, co-authored or written by a
collective of individuals.
Authors must be able to vouch that their text is solely their own work and
has not been published elsewhere.
Texts should be no more than 3,000 words in length—and include no
references, notes, or other scholarly apparatus.
Follow the SAPIENS Style Guide.
We encourage the use of photography (no more than 5 pictures can be used to
illustrate the text) and other multimedia formats such as sound files and
videos. Sketches and drawings are also welcome. All images should be
uploaded on flickr and a URL link should be provided. Sound files should be
uploaded on soundcloud and short video clips on youtube and URL links
should be provided. Keep in mind that the use of multimedia is not a
guarantee of originality.
Texts must be submitted as a double-spaced Word document. The first page
should provide your name, address, and e-mail.
By your submission, you are agreeing to Allegra's and SAPIENS's Terms of
Use policies.
The deadline for submission of entries is June 1, 2016. Texts must be
submitted electronically, to submissions@allegralaboratory.net
Submissions will be read anonymously and adjudicated by a panel selected by
Allegra Lab and Sapiens editorial team members.
The result of the competition will be announced in September 1, 2016.
If a winner or invited, you are agreeing to work with Allegra and SAPIENS
editorial staff for online publication.
Questions concerning the competition should be directed to
submissions@allegralaboratory.net
