RAI conference: Anthropology in the World
British Museum, London 8th-10th June 2012

The Call for Panels is open.

While anthropology has influenced the world outside universities in many
different ways, we have not yet attempted to sketch out clearly the way
that this has taken place. To gain a better understanding of how and where
anthropology is influential will be potential useful in many ways both
theoretical and practical: it will give us a better understanding of
anthropology's intellectual place, it will help us understand where we may
be most effective, and it will help us greatly in helping and advising
those who may wish to seek a career that is relevant to their
anthropological studies. This conference welcomes those persons within
universities who are curious as to the discipline's wider place in the
external world; those who are already employing their anthropological
skills outside academia, those who might wish to employ anthropologists,
and those who are studying anthropology and wonder how it may be a useful
skill for them in the future. Panels may be conventional in format, or
they may be fluid, for example round-tables, film showings, or debates.
