*Culture and Change: Towards a Dynamic Anthropology*

Anthropologists recognize that cultures are dynamic and changing. Recent
global events, such as the uprising in Egypt and the Occupy Movement, have
pushed these notions of social dynamism to the forefront of public
consciousness. How do global forces combine with local dynamics to shape
the futures of communities around the world? Scholars from the traditional
fields of anthropology, as well as geography, political science, law, and
other disciplines are engaging with this question in new ways.

We cordially invite graduate and undergraduate scholars across disciplines
to join us for an exploration of these themes. Please submit paper, poster,
and documentary/ethnographic film abstracts by the new extended
deadline *February
15th, 2012*, via the submission form on the conference website. Abstracts
are limited to 150 words. Please include 3 or 4 keywords below the body of
the abstract.

To register for the advance rate of $15, and to purchase banquet meal
tickets for $20, please visit the conference website at Also check back for continual
updates on the program and schedule.

Please circulate widely to interested parties and direct any questions to Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you on
March 3rd!
