Incoming CASCA Executive, 2011-2012/ Nouveau comité exécutif de la
CASCA, 2011-2012


It is my great pleasure to introduce our members to three new incoming
members to the CASCA Executive. They will take up their positions
immediately after our AGM during the Fredericton Conference in May.


J?ai le plaisir de présenter à nos membres les trois nouveaux
officiers du comité exécutif de la CASCA. Leur mandat prendra effet
immédiatement après notre assemblée générale annuelle qui aura lieu lors
du colloque à Fredericton en mai prochain.


President-Elect:
Ellen R. Judd, B.A. (Queen?s U), M.A., Ph.D. (UBC), Diploma (Beijing
Language Institute), Diploma (Fudan U), F.R.S.C., is a Distinguished
Professor at the University of Manitoba. Her early research explored
cultural production in twentieth century China, including the Cultural
Revolution period and the revival of ritual opera. She later focused on
research in rural north China, examining how reform era thresholds could
be approached through the ethnography of gender, kinship and political
economy in households, communities and the initiatives of the women?s
movement. This was followed by ethnography exploring mobility,
livelihood and care in upland interior communities providing migrants to
cities and to centres of international commodity
production. Her current research explores how migrants care for the
health and wellbeing of their translocal families in an emergent milieu
of new health and social programs. She has long been involved with
CASCA, as Anglophone Book Review Editor and on the Editorial Board for
Culture/Anthropologica, and was guest editor of its special issue on War
and Peace.


Présidente désignée : Ellen R. Judd, B.A. (Queen?s U), M.A., Ph.D.
(UBC), est diplômée de la Beijing Language Institute et de la Fudan
University, membre de la Société royale du Canada et est une
professeure distinguée de la University of Manitoba. Ses premières
recherches s?intéressaient à la production culturelle dans la Chine du
XXe siècle, dont la période de la Révolution culturelle et la
renaissance de l?opéra rituel. Elle a plus tard effectué des
recherches en zone rurale du nord de la Chine. Elle y a examiné de
quelle façon l?avènement d?une ère de réforme peut être envisagé par le
biais de l?ethnographie du genre, de la parentalité et de
l?économie dans les foyers, les collectivités ainsi qu?au c?ur des
initiatives du mouvement féministe. Elle a ensuite utilisé
l?ethnographie pour explorer la mobilité, les moyens de subsistance et
les soins chez les collectivités des hautes terres intérieures que les
migrants quittent au profit des villes et centres internationaux de
production de biens. Grâce à ses recherches, Ellen a pu observer comment
les migrants s?occupent de la santé et du bien-être de leur famille
translocale dans un milieu émergent offrant de nouveaux
programmes sociaux et de santé. Elle est active depuis longtemps au sein
de la CASCA en tant que rédactrice de comptes rendus anglophones et au
sein du comité de rédaction de Culture/Anthropologica, et a été
directrice invitée pour le numéro spécial La guerre et la paix.


Treasurer: Lorne Holyoak completed his doctorate at the University of
Toronto in 2000. The topic of his dissertation was shamanism among the
Manzu of northeast China. From 1998 to 2001 he was director of
ethnography and oral history for the Ministry of Community and
Cultural Affairs of the Republic of Palau. From 2002 to 2006 Lorne was
an assistant professor of anthropology in the Department of Religious
Studies and Anthropology at the University of Saskatchewan. From 2006 to
2009 Lorne worked as a manager of policy teams for the Department of
Canadian Heritage in the federal government. Presently, he is a senior
policy and research analyst with Status of Women Canada and an adjunct
professor at Carleton University.


Trésorier : Lorne Holyoak a obtenu son doctorat à la University of
Toronto en 2000. Son sujet de thèse était le chamanisme chez les
Mandchous du nord-est de la Chine. De 1998 à 2001, il a été le
directeur de l?ethnographie et de l?histoire orale pour le ministère de
la Communauté et des Affaires culturelles de la République des Palaos.
Entre 2002 et 2006, Lorne a été professeur adjoint
d?anthropologie au département d?études religieuses et d?anthropologie à
la University of Saskatchewan. Par la suite, de 2006 à 2009, il a géré

professeur auxiliaire à la Carleton University.


Membre actif francophone : Nathalie Boucher est doctorante en Études
urbaines, un programme multidisciplinaire de l?Institut national de la
recherche scientifique - Centre Urbanisation Culture Société, à
Montréal. Elle s?intéresse aux interactions verbales et non verbales
qu?elle observe et analyse dans une perspective anthropologique. Cet
intérêt a d?ailleurs été au c?ur de ses recherches de maîtrise
(anthropologie, Université Laval). Ses recherches actuelles portent sur
Los Angeles et la façon dont la communication peut être le point central
d?analyse de diverses thématiques urbaines telles que
diversité sociale, fragmentation urbaine et espace public. Ces
intérêts de recherche sont sous-jacents à ses travaux au Canada, en
Inde, au Mexique et au Nicaragua. Elle a récemment publié sur
l?ambiance urbaine et la méthodologie.


Member-at-Large francophone: Nathalie Boucher Nathalie Boucher is a PhD
candidate in the interdisciplinary Urban Studies programme at the
Institut national de la recherché scientifique ?Centre Urbanisation
Culture Société, Montreal. She is interested in face-to-face
communication as seen through the lens of anthropology, in which she
holds an MA from Université Laval. In her ongoing doctoral research, in
Los Angeles, communication is understood as the point of
intersection at which one can draw together analyses of social
diversity, urban fragmentation, and public space. These research
interests have been the focus the research she did in Canada, India,
Mexico and Nicaragua. She has recently published on urban "ambiance" and
methodology.


Notre nouvelle présidente sera Marie Nathalie LeBlanc (UQAM) à compter
de mai 2011. Craig Proulx poursuivra son mandat de secrétaire pour une
dernière année et Christopher Fletcher (Laval) demeurera membre actif
anglophone. Michel Bouchard (UNBC) continuera son formidable travail
d?agent d?information et de webmestre tandis que Craig Candler
explorera les facettes de son poste de représentant de l?anthropologie
pratique et appliquée. Par ailleurs, j?aimerais également exprimer ma
gratitude à nos officiers sortants : Robert Adlam (Mount Allison) qui a
agi comme trésorier pendant deux mandats et qui a rendu la
comptabilité accessible et compréhensible pour nous tous. Martin Hébert
(Laval), en tant que membre actif, nous a habilement présenté les
activités de nos membres dans de nombreux numéros de Culture. Deirdre
Meintel (Montréal) nous a pris sous son aile avec compassion et
attention pendant les trois dernières années à titre de présidente
désignée, de présidente et d?ancienne présidente.

Bienvenue aux nouveaux officiers et merci à tous,
Janice Graham, présidente

Our new President, will be Marie Nathalie LeBlanc (UQAM) effective May
2011. Craig Proulx will be continuing as Secretary for a final year, and
Christopher Fletcher (Laval) will continue as Member-at-Large. Michel
Bouchard (UNBC) will still be keeping us all up-to-date as
Communications Officer and Webmeister extraordinaire, and Craig
Candler is travelling new paths in the Practicing/Contract
Anthropologist position. At this time, I would also like to extend my
appreciation to our outgoing Executive. Treasurer, Robert Adlam (Mount
Allison), has served two full terms and made accounting
transparent and understandable for us all. Martin Hebert (Laval), as

Anthropology in Education Panel Call for Papers, CASCA 2011

Anthropology in Education: Canadian Cases

The purpose of this panel is to bring together examples of Canadian
anthropological research into knowledge dissemination practises,
educational institutions and systems, and processes of teaching, learning
and child development in order to highlight the
distinctiveness of the Canadian perspective. Unlike the American
experience, with the Spindler= school and its generation of researchers,
the Council on Anthropology and Education (CAE), and the Anthropology
and Education Quarterly (AEQ) journal, the
sub-discipline of educational anthropology has never taken root in Canada.
American dominance of the sub-discipline has certainly not excluded
Canadian contributions, or others from a broad range of perspectives and
places. But the sheer volume of American research and researchers has
ensured an American focus in the CAE and the AEQ. Canadian history has
produced different experiences, practises and policies in the field of
education, which benefit from anthropological analysis and tell a
compelling and specifically Canadian story of educational involvement at
home and abroad.
Contributions to the panel could include Canadian researchers working
abroad, researchers working within Canadian educational institutions,
research with indigenous and Aboriginal knowledge systems, studies into
childhood and youth, formal and informal educational practises, and any
instance where anthropological theories and methods have been applied to
situations involving education in a Canadian context. Please contact Evie
Plaice at plaice@unb.ca if you are interested in joining the panel.

Panel proposal on food and identity CASCA 2011

Hello,

Merin Oleschuk and Helen Vallianatos are working on putting together a
panel session for CASCA 2011, and need another participant. Panel
participants will examine the experience of ethnic/national
identity/ies through food practices and beliefs. The abstract for the
panel is:

As an integral symbol of identity, foodways at once embody the
individual, group and nation. Individuals construct their subjectivity
through both their literal and symbolic associations with food; we
assert our collective identities through common eating practices and
delineate boundaries between groups in the opposite manner.
Ethnic and national identities are manipulated and reformulated in the
creation of a national culture and this is represented in the
development of national cuisines. As scholars such as Arjun Appadurai,
Igor Cusack, and Richard Wilk tell us, a national cuisine is created
by multiple gendered, ethnic, and classed groups to appropriate and
assemble regional and ethnic cuisines into a relatively cohesive
product which defines "the boundaries of edibility and the structure
of domestic ideologies" (Appadurai, 1988). The diversities within any
national cuisine are demonstrated in the gendered construction of
nationhood, where men and women have defined roles to play in the
performance of the nation (Yuval-Davis, 1997). In producing the food
of the nation, women can be understood as partaking in a form of
nationalism which is differentially situated within the realm of
empowerment and silence depending on the value placed on this work
(Clark, 2009; Cusack, 2000).
The papers presented in this panel will explore the gendered
performance of ethnic and national identities. We seek to critically
examine how food is used by individuals to express their gendered,
ethnic and national subjectivities.

Please contact Merin Oleschuk (oleschuk@ualberta.ca) if interested.

Call for Papers for a Session at CASCA 2011: Seeds of hope? Signs of Life in Latin America

Call for Papers for a Session at CASCA 2011

Seeds of hope? Signs of Life in Latin America
The dawn of the 21st century has seen a leftward turn in many Latin
American countries, altering the social, political and cultural
landscape. The papers in this session examine contemporary life
under these new conditions. They will consider questions such as:
What kinds of cultural and social practices and projects emerge?
How do people engage with this new, perhaps less hostile, state?
Have (or how have) the national agendas of these states effected the
lives of the people we work with? Here we refer of material changes
like social spending, but also of less material ones, like hope.
If you have a paper you think might fit in this panel, please send a
150 word abstract to Lindsay DuBois at Lindsay.DuBois@dal.ca

CASCA 2011 panel: call for abstracts - Post/Colonial (Re)Constructions of Indigenous parenthood and family life

CASCA 2011 Panel Proposal:
Post/Colonial (Re)Constructions of Indigenous parenthood and family life

We are still seeking one additional paper for this panel. Please send
abstracts by email to Krista.maxwell@utoronto.ca not later than 5pm (EST)
on Wednesday February 23rd. We will aim to respond within twenty-four
hours.

Proposed Panel:
Many colonial regimes around the world and through history have been
centrally concerned with Indigenous family relations, parenting practices
and children. The latter have constituted social sites for the
legitimization of colonization, through discourses which construct
colonized peoples as morally inferior and justify interventions by the
colonial state, religious authorities and/or settler society into
Indigenous family life. Anthropologists and other scholars are belatedly
analysing what Indigenous people have been arguing for several decades:
how colonial regimes, in Canada and many other parts of the world, have
practiced the coerced acculturation of colonized children as a central
technique of colonial governance, removing Indigenous children from their
families and communities and placing them in boarding schools, orphanages,
children's homes and settler families. Comparable practices continue to
the present day through child welfare systems in settler states including
Canada, the United States and Australia. The striking historical
endurance of practices of 'rescuing' Indigenous children, across different
settler colonies and over periods of profound political and social change,
should prompt us to analyse how legitimizing discourses shift over time,
in concert with dominant professional, institutional and other interests
and changing moral economies.

Historically and in the present, Indigenous people have disrupted dominant
accounts and assumptions about the legitimacy of state-authorised
professionals' interventions into Indigenous family life. Such challenges
have coalesced in organized political protests, legal actions and
Indigenous initiatives to develop child welfare, parent support and early
childhood education services which are accountable to Indigenous
communities and incorporate Indigenous knowledge and languages. Such
initiatives involve processes of institution-building and
professionalization, often in the context of colonial continuities in
relations between settler states and Indigenous peoples, creating new
sites for the (re)constructions of Indigenous family relations and
contestations of parenting practices.

This panel seeks to promote scholarly dialogue on these issues via a
series of papers which analyse dominant and resistant, historical and
emergent discourses and practices on Indigenous parenting, child welfare
and family relations across time and in geographically varied
post/colonial settings. Analyses might draw on ethnographic and/or
historical (archival, oral history, literary, photographic, other)
sources, and focus on policies, professions, institutions,
social/political movements, and/or any other relevant site. All
submissions engaging with the above themes are welcome. We are
particularly interested in those which:
• analyse the social complexity of colonial relations with due attention
to Indigenous people as social and political actors, rather than focusing
more narrowly on dominant/ settler discourses
• draw on ethnographies/sources from outside of Canada (two of our
existing papers are Canadian-based).

Panel organizers: Krista Maxwell (Department of Social Science, University
of Toronto Scarborough Campus) and Susanne Miskimmin (Department of
Anthropology, University of Toronto).

CASCA 2011: Keynote Speaker/conf=?iso-8859-1?Q?=E9rencier?= principal - Mark Nuttall

(English follows)

Le comité organisateur du colloque 2011 de la CASCA à Fredericton (du
11 au 14 mai 2011) est fier d'annoncer l'identité de son conférencier
principal : M. Mark Nuttall, titulaire de la chaire Henry Marshall
Tory à l'Université d'Alberta. M. Nuttall a mené des recherches
anthropologiques et effectué du travail de terrain au Groenland, au
Canada, en Finlande, en Écosse et en Alaska. Parmi ses champs
d'intérêt, on compte entre autres l'histoire anthropologique et
environnementale du climat; les questions des modifications de
l'environnement et de l'exploitation des ressources au sein des
communautés rurales et côtières; l'anthropologie de l'énergie et les
industries extractives (y compris leurs politiques de consultation
autochtone et culturelle); les espaces, localités, dépopulation et
migration; les dimensions humaines des questions globales de
l'environnement et de la durabilité; et les identités et frontières.
Au sens large, il s'intéresse à la compréhension des relations
humain-environnement, principalement dans le contexte de changements
environnementaux historiques et contemporains qui ont un effet sur le
gagne-pain de l'être humain, son engagement envers l'environnement et
son exploitation des ressources à différents niveaux interdépendants.
Ses travaux actuels explorent l?engagement de l'anthropologie face aux
bouleversements climatiques, les réactions culturelles et politiques
devant ce phénomène, ainsi que la négociation et la gestion des terres
en mutation et des processus politiques sur les changements climatiques.

Voici le résumé du discours thème que prononcera M. Mark Nuttall. Nous
sommes convaincus que cette présentation correspondra parfaitement au
thème du virage vert du colloque et nous espérons que vous assisterez
tous à ce qui promet d?être une excellente et enrichissante allocution.

Monde changeant, mises en garde et surprises :
Réflexions sur les changements climatiques, leur influence et leur
anticipation

Mark Nuttall
University of Alberta

Tant les recherches scientifiques que les reportages médiatiques
concernant les changements climatiques sont aujourd'hui saturés
d'expressions comme « seuil critique » et « point de non-retour ». Il
en découle des discussions caractérisées par une angoissante
anticipation d'un avenir modelé par de profonds bouleversements
climatiques, environnementaux, économiques, politiques et sociaux
irréversibles dont la portée serait considérable. Ce vocabulaire
influence le discours et les discussions servant à établir des
politiques quant aux catastrophes écologiques et aux crises
humanitaires, et les sens discursif, rhétorique et métaphorique de ces
expressions sont incroyablement puissants. Le climat est perçu comme
ayant le pouvoir d'influencer nos vies comme il ne l'a jamais fait
auparavant, ce qui implique un effet transformateur, perturbateur et
déstabilisant. Ainsi, la complexité du monde est exprimée par des
modèles scientifiques qui suggèrent un retour au déterminisme
climatique. De quelle façon l'anthropologie doit-elle participer à
cette discussion, à la recherche et à l'élaboration d'initiatives
concernant les changements climatiques? Les « points de non-retour »
et les « seuils critiques » sont-ils des métaphores? Doit-on les voir
comme d'hypothétiques prévisions ou comme la description d'événements
réels, indicateurs de futurs changements? Que voulons-nous dire quand
nous utilisons ces termes pour imaginer, décrire et représenter le
monde? Quelle importance leur accorder par rapport aux connaissances
et pratiques anticipatoires? En effet, comment l'anticipation nous
aide-t-elle à traverser un monde en constante évolution et plein de
surprises et comment influence-t-elle notre façon de se tourner vers
l'avenir?

The Local Organizing Committee for CASCA 2011 in Fredericton (May
11-14, 2011) is pleased to announce our Keynote Speaker: Dr. Mark
Nuttall, Henry Marshall Tory Chair at the University of Alberta. He
has carried out anthropological research and fieldwork in Greenland,
Canada, Finland, Scotland and Alaska. His research interests cover,
but are not confined to, the anthropology and environmental history of
weather and climate; environmental change and resource use issues in
rural and coastal communities; the anthropology of energy and the
extractive industries (including the indigenous and cultural politics
of consultation); place, locality, depopulation and migration; the
human dimensions of global environmental and sustainability issues;
and identities and borderlands. In a broad sense, his interests focus
on understanding human-environment relations, especially within a
context of historical and contemporary environmental changes which
affect livelihoods, human engagement with the environment, resource
use and development at multiple and interrelated levels. Ongoing work
explores anthropology?s engagement with climate change, the cultural
and political responses to climate change, and the negotiation and
management of both shifting geographical terrains and climate policy
processes.

Here is the abstract of his Keynote Address. We look forward to a talk
completely relevant to our conference theme of greening. We hope that
you will all attend what promises to be an excellent and informative
talk.

Shifting worlds, forewarnings, and sudden surprises:
reflections on climate change, agency and anticipation

Mark Nuttall
University of Alberta

Both scientific research and media reporting on climate change are now
replete with references to ?tipping points?, ?thresholds?, and ?points
of no return?. This prompts discussion characterized by a nervous
anticipation of a future shaped by dramatic, far-reaching, and
irreversible climatic, environmental, economic, political and social
change. It influences the development of narratives and policy
discussion of ecological catastrophe and humanity in crisis and it is
tremendously powerful in discursive, rhetorical, and metaphorical
senses. Climate is talked about and represented as having the power to
influence our lives in ways we have never before experienced ?
suggesting something transformative, disruptive and decentering. Yet,
in doing so, the complexity of the human world is explained in terms
of scientific models that suggest a return to climatic determinism.
How is anthropology to contribute to this discussion and to research
and policy action on climate change? Are ?tipping points? and
?thresholds? metaphors, are they to be understood within contexts of
speculative forecast, or are they descriptions of real events and
indications of future change? What do we mean when we use these terms
to imagine, describe, and represent the world? What relevance do they
have for anticipatory knowledge and anticipatory practice? Indeed, how
does anticipation guide us through a world of shifting conditions and
sudden surprises and influence ways we orient ourselves towards the
future?

Panel: Sight Unseen: Contact with the Invisible in Secularized Societies

In this session, panelists will the relations with the invisible in
Western societies. Though secularization has often been thought to have
effaced concerns with spirits and with the unseen in general, in fact, we
note a resurgence in beliefs and practices related to what is diversely
termed as the "world of spirit", the "paranormal" and so on. The works of
scholars such as Tanya Luhrman, Marion Aubrée, Meredith McGuire and others
indicate that relations with the invisible are part of daily life for many
in North America, Great Britain, France and other societies characterized
by institutional secularization.

The broad focus of the panel includes invisible aspects of human beings
and the world they inhabit; e.g. invisible entities (spirits, angels,
guides, beings of light, auras, energy fields etc. etc.) and the
practices associated with them (trance, possession, exorcism,
mediumship...) Though well known to anthropologists, these topics are more
often studied in other types of society, and occasionally, among migrants
from those societies to North America and Western Europe. This panel is
aimed at exploring relations with the invisible as well as the concepts
and methods used to study them. It is intended to be forum for exchange
between researchers working in the anthropology of religion, ontological
anthropology, « anthropology of the afterlife » (Fiona Bowie) and and
other fields.

Title: Spirits in the City

Direct contact with spirits is part of normal everyday reality for many
people in the city of Montreal, situated in the province of Quebec,
Canada. Spiritualists describe contact with a plethora of spirit entities
that comes about by various means. Even those who do not experience such
themselves often believe that others around them do; e.g., members of the
same spiritual group, mediums they know, and so on. Many consider urban
spaces –homes, in particular – as the habitat of spirit entities with whom
it is possible to interact. Such entities may be evil spirits, benevolent
ones or « lost souls » trapped on the earth plane, unable to move on to
the world of spirit without help. Many cases I will present here concern a
Spiritualist congregation that I have followed for many years. Others come
from a team project on contemporary religious currents in Quebec that I
have been directing for the last five years.

Key Words: spirits, possession,exorcism, urban life

Title: An « Ontological » Anthropology of Experiences of the Invisible
among Canadians


In this presentation, I explore the experiences of the invisible
(sensations, visions, voices, out of body experiences) of Canadians
(mainly Quebecois) and the meaning they give to them. The interpretations
my informants give for these happenings draw on a vast symbolic store of
meanings available in Western societies and at the same time are nourished
by direct experience. Unseen beings (the dead, beings of light,
guides...) and invisible dimensions of human beings (energetic bodies and
paranormal abilities) are invoked to explain such experiences. Such
explanations mobilize notions of being that constitute alternatives to
rationalism and materialism. Ontological anthropology, a theoretical
current that developed out of new readings of animism, appears fruitful
for giving account of my informants' experiences and the interpretations
they offer for them. An important influence on my approach is Tim Ingold's
notion of "attentive engagement".


Keywords: experience, the invisible, ontological anthropology, Western

Call for Papers: CASCA 2011 Panel

Time and the Expert: Temporalities and the Social Life of Expert
Knowledge.

This panel is concerned with the active social life of expert knowledge.
A curiosity for understanding the ways in which expert knowledge promises
particular futures and remembers specific pasts animates these papers. We
are fascinated by the forms of expert knowledge, but even more so in how
they circulate. How does expert knowledge become implicated in the
formation of communities or caught up in the creation or renewal of
stigmas and prejudices? How are temporalities in expert knowledge
harnessed to affect? How are forms of social and biological
differentiation created and reinforced? We delve into how temporalities
of expert knowledge can buttress or destabilize the legacies of
colonialism in contemporary experiences of post coloniality. We take a
broad approach to both "expert" and "knowledge". For example, papers on
this panel might consider temporalities of ethnographic reports and
religious texts, demographic or development models, academic biosciences,
agricultural knowledge or traditional medicine.

If you would like to participate in this panel, please send us an abstract
of 150 words by February 20th.

TRACES AND TRANSFORMATIONS IN ANTHROPOLOGY AND ART PRACTICES: A
STRATEGIC ENGAGEMENT?

We seek paper submissions for a panel organized to address the topic
of art and anthropological practices as it relates to this year's AAA
theme, "Traces, Tidemarks and Legacies". Despite recent attention to
the relationships between contemporary art and anthropology, the
traces and legacies that these two practices have left upon one
another remain underexplored. Papers presented in this panel will
explore questions about anthropology and art through the way both
modes of inquiry are engaged in practice, particularly through the
practice of visual art. We are interested in submissions from social
scientists and artists who can speak about how their own contemporary
art practices work as facets of their research. These art producers
move beyond recent discussions of borders, edges and borrowing to look
more closely at how art practices come to bear on anthropology and
what contribution anthropology makes to diverse art worlds. We pose
the question: How is the practice of art a form of strategic
engagement, rather than simply appropriation?

Questions that papers address may include:

1. What are the traces, tidemarks and legacies that the process of
art practice brings into anthropological practice?

2. In what way are art practices and art worlds transformed by
investigation that bears the marks of anthropological inquiry?

3. What traces remain of the legacy of critical conversation in
relation to the debate of knowledge production in visual anthropology
and filmmaking? Furthermore, what is impressed upon new practices
created within the realm of academics and art production? What lessons
can we learn from the debate around knowledge production and film
production in visual anthropology? How can this be applied to visual
arts production in the present?

4. What might the use of artistic production as a method of
knowledge production bring to anthropology?

5. Do anthropologists who use art practice and engage their art
production in the art world start from a different position than
artists who don't use this approach? If so, in what ways does it
differ? What ways do art practices differ if used in an
anthropological context? As anthropologists, can we ever not be
embedded in an anthropological context?

6. What happens when either art or anthropology leaves one world
and circulates to another without an artistic or anthropological
context?

7. What ways can anthropologists and artists learn from one
another -- for better or for worse?

8. In what way does art practice transform into something else if
it is approached by an anthropologist, with a set of anthropological
questions, and when the knowledge (or object) produced returns to feed
into anthropological knowledge? Does it transform it?

9. What ways of working and methodological approaches does art
offer anthropologists to approach the study of representation?

Paper Proposal Deadline

If you are interested in presenting a paper as part of this panel,
please submit a 250-word abstract by March 1, 2011 to trudis@uvic.ca

CASCA 2011 panel: call for abstracts - Post/Colonial (Re)Constructions of Indigenous parenthood and family life

CASCA 2011 Panel Proposal:

Post/Colonial (Re)Constructions of Indigenous parenthood and family life

Many colonial regimes around the world and through history have been
centrally concerned with Indigenous family relations, parenting practices
and children. The latter have constituted social sites for the
legitimization of colonization, through discourses which construct
colonized peoples as morally inferior and justify interventions by the
colonial state, religious authorities and/or settler society into
Indigenous family life. Anthropologists and other scholars are belatedly
analysing what Indigenous people have been arguing for several decades:
how colonial regimes, in Canada and many other parts of the world, have
practiced the coerced acculturation of colonized children as a central
technique of colonial governance, removing Indigenous children from their
families and communities and placing them in boarding schools, orphanages,
children's homes and settler families. Comparable practices continue to
the present day through child welfare systems in settler states including
Canada, the United States and Australia. The striking historical
endurance of practices of 'rescuing' Indigenous children, across different
settler colonies and over periods of profound political and social change,
should prompt us to analyse how legitimizing discourses shift over time,
in concert with dominant professional, institutional and other interests
and changing moral economies.

Historically and in the present, Indigenous people have disrupted dominant
accounts and assumptions about the legitimacy of state-authorised
professionals' interventions into Indigenous family life. Such challenges
have coalesced in organized political protests, legal actions and
Indigenous initiatives to develop child welfare, parent support and early
childhood education services which are accountable to Indigenous
communities and incorporate Indigenous knowledge and languages. Such
initiatives involve processes of institution-building and
professionalization, often in the context of colonial continuities in
relations between settler states and Indigenous peoples, creating new
sites for the (re)constructions of Indigenous family relations and
contestations of parenting practices.

This panel seeks to promote scholarly dialogue on these issues via a
series of papers which analyse dominant and resistant, historical and
emergent discourses and practices on Indigenous parenting, child welfare
and family relations across time and in geographically varied
post/colonial settings. Analyses might draw on ethnographic and/or
historical (archival, oral history, literary, photographic, other)
sources, and focus on policies, professions, institutions,
social/political movements, and/or any other relevant site. All
submissions engaging with the above themes are welcome. We are
particularly interested in those which:
• analyse the social complexity of colonial relations with due attention
to Indigenous people as social and political actors, rather than focusing
more narrowly on dominant/ settler discourses
• draw on ethnographies/sources from outside of Canada (two of our
existing papers are Canadian-based).

Please send abstracts by email to Krista.maxwell@utoronto.ca not later
than 5pm (EST) on Friday February 18th. We will aim to respond by 5pm on
Monday February 21st.

Panel organizers: Krista Maxwell (Department of Social Science, University

CASCA conference panel search: Seeding the City

Panel proposal and search for CASCA conference 2011, Fredericton, NB, May
11-14, 2011

Organizer: Martha Radice, Dalhousie University


*Seeding the City*

From green roofs to flash mobs, from the re-appropriation of public spaces
to the reinvigoration of social movements, people are continually seeding
cities with new ideas and practices. Urban anthropologists are likewise
breaking new ground and tending new varieties of research in their
fieldwork. What approaches to urban space and networks are being explored?
What can be said about the growth and decay of public spaces, city forms,
and urban trends? How is the city morphing under the influence of cultural
and social practices themselves shaped by forces at different scales? How
are urban dynamics like fragmentation, polarization, re-enchantment,
privatization, metropolitanization, sustainability and hyper-mobility
changing the ways we apprehend the city? This session call on urban
anthropologists and their colleagues from related disciplines to share the
greenest shoots of their research: their work-in-progress, their latest
theoretical frameworks, objects of study, methods or collaborations.

If you would like to present in this panel, please send the title of your
paper with an abstract of 150 words to Martha Radice, martha.radice@dal.ca,
by *Friday 18 February.* Decisions regarding inclusion in the panel will be
sent out by 21 February. This is a bilingual panel, accepting papers in
French and English.

Des toits verts aux foules éclairs, de la réappropriation des espaces
publics à la revitalisation des mouvements sociaux, les citadins ne cessent
de semer la ville d'idées et de pratiques novatrices. En parallèle, les
anthropologues urbains sont en train de creuser de nouveaux terrains et de
cultiver de nouvelles variétés de recherche. Comment mettent-ils à jour
l'étude des espaces et des réseaux urbains? Que disent-ils à propos de la
croissance et de la décomposition des espaces publics, des formes et des
tendances urbaines? Comment la ville se métamorphose-t-elle sous l'influence
de pratiques sociales et culturelles elles-mêmes forgées à d'autres
échelles? Comment notre compréhension de la ville est-elle affectée par des
dynamiques urbaines telles que la fragmentation, la privatisation, la
durabilité, la polarisation, le ré-enchantement, la métropolisation,
l'hyper-mobilité? Cet atelier invite les anthropologues urbains ainsi que
leurs collègues d'autres disciplines à partager les pousses les plus
tendres de leur recherche en cours.

Si vous souhaitez présenter une communication dans cet atelier, veuillez en
envoyer le titre avec un résumé de 150 mots à Martha Radice,
martha.radice@dal.ca, avant le 18 février. Une décision quant à votre
participation à l'atelier vous sera envoyée avant le 21 février. Cet atelier
sera bilingue, avec des communications en français et en anglais.

CIHR Grants and Awards Guide – Dec. 2010 Changes
Dec. 15, 2010 - CIHR announces the launch of the revised Grants and
Awards Guide. For a summary of the changes visit:
http://www.cihr-irsc.gc.ca/e/22730.html.

We would like to highlight the following change:

To further acknowledge researchers' contributions and team building,
and to more accurately reflect that grant membership can change over
time in response to research needs:

1. The Nominated Principal Applicant (NPA) on a grant may now add,
promote or remove Principal Applicants and Co-Applicants on their
existing grants, provided that:
* the individuals added, replaced or promoted meet the
individual eligibility requirements as outlined in the original
funding opportunity description; and
* the rationale for adding, replacing, promoting or removing
individuals has been deemed justifiable by the authorized official at
the Institution Paid. The signature of the authorized official at the
Institution Paid on the Request to Replace, Add, Remove or Promote
Individuals on Existing Grants confirms that the changes are
justifiable. Note: CIHR will deny the request if the authorized
official at the Institution Paid has not signed the Request to
Replace, Add, Remove or Promote Individuals on Existing Grants.
2. The replacement of individuals on existing grants is no longer
limited to a change in eligibility.

The Nominated Principal Applicant is encouraged to communicate and
ensure agreement on changes of this nature to project participants.

Changes to CIHR's KT Supplement
<http://www.researchnet-recherchenet.ca/rnr16/vwOpprtntyDtls.do?prog=1191&&view=currentOpps&org=CIHR&type=AND&resultCount=25&sort=program&all=1&masterList=true>

Funding
Opportunity
A core component of CIHR's mandate is to translate knowledge into
improved health, more effective health services and products, and a
strengthened health care system. The Knowledge Translation (KT)
Branch, through its KT Supplement Funding Opportunity, provides
supplemental funding to enable widespread dissemination and
implementation of research findings to communities beyond the
traditional scientific community so as to accelerate the capture of
the benefits of health research. The funding opportunity requires the
use of active KT strategies and interventions supplementary to
publication in peer reviewed journals. It is not intended to cover
typical KT costs budgeted for at the time of submission of the
original grant (eg. publication costs and open access fees for
anticipated publications, conference fees, etc).

In order to maximize the impact of this funding opportunity, CIHR has
instituted key changes to the scope of the KT Supplement Funding
Opportunity:

* The maximum amount awarded for a single KT supplement grant has
increased from $40,000 to $100,000 for up to one year. CIHR has
committed $2,000,000 to this opportunity and this increase is expected
to further allow applicants to develop substantial KT
strategies/interventions and activities appropriate to their research
findings. Please note that;
* The specific objective of this funding opportunity is to
facilitate the dissemination and uptake of research findings through
appropriate KT strategies/activities based on the best evidence of
effective methods for influencing the uptake of research by the
intended target audience(s) following the successful completion of a
peer reviewed grant/award or a component of a grant/award for which
dissemination and uptake is justifiable before the grant/award is
complete.
* KT strategies/activities must be appropriate to the degree
of generalizability of the research findings (ie. are the proposed KT
strategies/activities justified by the strength of the research
findings?). Furthermore, the justification for the activities must
include how the research findings fit within the context of available
literature.
* The eligibility criteria has been expanded to allow
applications related to improving health, health services or products
stemming from a peer reviewed grant issued by any recognized research
funder. Proof of previous and related grant funding will be required
with the application.

Please note that:
CIHR has committed $8,000,000 to the KT Supplement program, to be
distributed evenly, over the following four competitions; October
2010, February 2011, June 2011 and October 2011.

Inquiries regarding these program adjustments can be directed to Ms.
Yumna Choudhry, Senior KT Specialist, at 613-954-1944 or

15 décembre 2010 – Modifications - Guide de subventions et bourses des IRSC
15 décembre 2010 – Les IRSC annoncent le lancement du Guide de
subventions et bourses révisé. Pour une liste des changements,
veuillez visiter : http://www.cihr-irsc.gc.ca/f/22730.html.

Nous tenons à souligner le changement suivant :

Pour mieux reconnaître les contributions des chercheurs et la
formation d'équipe, et pour mieux tenir compte du fait que la
composition des équipes peut évoluer avec le temps en réponse aux
besoins de la recherche :

1. Le candidat principal désigné (CPD) d'un projet subventionné
peut maintenant ajouter, promouvoir ou retirer des candidats
principaux et des co-candidats, pourvu que :
* les individus ajoutés, remplacés ou promus répondent aux
critères d'admissibilité individuels tels que définis dans le texte
original de la possibilité de financement;
* l'ajout, le remplacement, la promotion ou le retrait des
individus soient estimés
justifiables<http://www.cihr-irsc.gc.ca/f/22631.html#2-B5-2> par le
représentant autorisé de l'établissement payé. Celui-ci confirme que
les changements sont justifiables en apposant sa signature sur la
Demande de remplacement, d'ajout, de retrait ou de promotion
d'individus pour des subventions
existantes<http://www.cihr-irsc.gc.ca/f/797.html>. À noter : Les IRSC
rejetteront toute Demande de remplacement, d'ajout, de retrait ou de
promotion d'individus pour des subventions existantes qui n'aura pas
été signée par le représentant autorisé de l'établissement payé.
2. Le remplacement d'individus pour des subventions existantes ne
se limite plus aux changements par rapport à l'admissibilité.

On encourage le candidat principal désigné à communiquer les
changements de cette nature aux participants au projet et d'en
convenir avec eux. Les IRSC n'exigent pas la confirmation des
candidats principaux et des co-candidats pour traiter une demande
d'ajout, de remplacement, de promotion ou de retrait d'individus pour
une subvention existante.

Pour obtenir de l'information sur la politique des IRSC sur le
remplacement, l'ajout, le retrait ou la promotion de candidats
principaux et de co-candidats (subventions existantes), y compris des
exemples de changements justifiables, veuillez consulter la
sous-section Remplacement, ajout, retrait ou promotion de candidats
principaux et de co-candidats (subventions
existantes)<http://www.cihr-irsc.gc.ca/f/22631.html#2-B5>.

Des changements à programme Supplément pour l'AC des IRSC
Une importante composante du mandat des IRSC est d'appliquer les
connaissances en vue d'améliorer la santé de la population canadienne,
d'offrir de meilleurs produits et services de santé, et de renforcer
le système de santé au Canada. La Direction de l'application des
connaissances (AC), par sa possibilité de financement Supplément pour
l'AC, offre du financement supplémentaire pour permettre la
dissémination à grande échelle et la mise en application des résultats
de la recherche hors du milieu scientifique traditionnel, de manière à
accélérer la concrétisation des avantages de la recherche en santé.
Cette possibilité de financement nécessite le recours à des stratégies
et interventions actives en AC autres que la publication dans des
revues examinées par des pairs. Elle n'est pas destinée à couvrir des
coûts habituels d'AC prévus au budget au moment de l'octroi de la
subvention originale (p. ex. coûts de publication et frais de libre
accès pour les publications prévues, frais liés à la tenue de
conférences, etc.).

Afin de maximiser l'impact de cette possibilité de financement, les
IRSC ont apporté des changements importants à la portée du programme
Supplément pour l'AC :

* Le montant maximal accordé par supplément pour l'AC est passé
de 40 000 $ à 100 000 $ pour une période maximale d'un an. Les IRSC
ont accordé une contribution financière de 2 000 000 $ à cette
possibilité de financement, et cette augmentation devrait mieux
permettre aux candidats de concevoir d'importantes stratégies,
interventions et activités d'AC appropriées à leurs résultats de
recherche. Il est à noter que :
o l'objectif particulier de la présente possibilité de
financement est de faciliter la dissémination et l'application des
résultats de la recherche grâce à des stratégies/activités d'AC
appropriées et fondées sur les meilleures données probantes qui
démontrent l'efficacité des méthodes influant sur l'application des
résultats de la recherche par les groupes cibles et ce, suite à
l'obtention d'une subvention/bourse ou un volet d'une
subvention/bourse examiné par les pairs, pour laquelle la
dissémination et l'application des connaissances sont justifiables
avant la fin de la période de subvention/bourse;
o les stratégies/activités d'AC doivent être adaptées au degré
de généralisation des résultats de la recherche (c.-à-d. le poids des
résultats de la recherche justifie-t-il les stratégies/activités
proposées d'AC?). De plus, la justification des activités doit
comprendre la façon dont les résultats de la recherche s'inscrivent
dans le contexte de la littérature disponible.

* Les critères d'admissibilité ont été élargis pour permettre la
présentation de demandes portant sur l'amélioration de la santé, des
produits ou des services de santé et provenant d'une subvention
obtenue suite à un examen par les pairs et accordée par tout bailleur
de fonds reconnu de la recherche. La demande devra être accompagnée
d'une preuve de financement antérieure et connexe.
Il faut également noter que :

Les IRSC ont consacré 8 000 000 $ au programme Supplément pour l'AC,
montant qui sera distribué équitablement lors des quatre concours
suivants : octobre 2010, février 2011, juin 2011 et octobre 2011.

Les demandes de renseignements concernant ces changements peuvent
êtres envoyées à Yumna Choudhry, spécialiste principale de l'AC, au
613-954-1944 ou à
yumna.choudhry@irsc-cihr.gc.ca<mailto:yumna.choudhry@irsc-cihr.gc.ca>.


Politique de RechercheNet des IRSC
N'oubliez pas : à compter du 3 janvier 2011, les IRSC mettront en
place une heure limite devancée à 20 h, heure de l'Est (HE), pour
toutes les possibilités de financement avec soumission électronique
sur RechercheNet. Pour plus de plus amples renseignements, visitez

Atelier d'été 2011 de l'Institut de la santé des femmes et des hommes des
IRSC

Du 6 au 10 juin 2011
Université de la Colombie Britannique, Vancouver (C. B.)

L'Institut de la santé des femmes et des hommes (ISFH) tiendra son
troisième atelier d'été annuel en juin 2011. Nous invitons à présenter
une demande les étudiants des cycles supérieurs et les postdoctorants
qui étudient la santé relativement au genre (essentiellement, les
facteurs sociaux) et/ou au sexe (essentiellement, les facteurs
biologiques). Le but de l'atelier d'été de l'ISFH est de fournir aux
participants la possibilité à la fois de mieux comprendre les méthodes
de la recherche sur le genre, le sexe et la santé, et de nouer des
liens avec des collègues et des mentors de partout au Canada.

Admissibilité

Les candidats doivent :

• être inscrits à un programme de maîtrise ou de doctorat à temps
plein ou à temps partiel dans une université canadienne ou être
titulaires d'une bourse d'études postdoctorales à une université
canadienne;
• avoir des intérêts de recherche, un sujet de thèse ou un projet
postdoctoral dans le domaine du genre, du sexe et de la santé;
• s'engager à s'assister aux cinq jours de l'atelier d'été de l'ISFH
(du 6 au 10 juin 2011);
• ne pas avoir assisté à l'atelier d'été de 2009 ou 2010 de l'ISFH.

Comme il s'agit d'une activité pour des stagiaires, l'ISFH n'acceptera
pas de demandes de participants potentiels qui ne sont pas des
étudiants des cycles supérieurs ni des postdoctorants (p. ex.
professeurs, responsables des politiques, membres du personnel
d'organismes non gouvernementaux).

Comment présenter une demande

Veuillez envoyer un courriel à
ea-igh@exchange.ubc.ca<mailto:ea-igh@exchange.ubc.ca> pour obtenir une
trousse de demande. La date limite pour les demandes est le jeudi 3
mars 2011. Nous encourageons les candidats à demander une trousse bien
avant cette date limite.
