Taiwan Fellowship opportunity for faculty

Dear colleagues,****

** **

I wanted to let you know of a great opportunity to conduct up to one year
of funded research in Taiwan. The Taiwan Fellowship provides return
airfare and a stipend of up to 60,000 New Taiwan Dollars a month for up to
one year. This is equivalent to just over $2000 CAD, and is enough to
generously cover living and research expenses here (rent is typically
$300 CAD/month). ****

** **

The link to the on-line application is here:********

The official language of Taiwan is Mandarin Chinese, but many people,
particularly at universities, speak English quite well and Chinese
ability, while obviously helpful for day-to-day living and research, is not
strictly necessary.****

** **

Taiwan is a beautiful, heavily forested sub-tropical and tropical island
east of China. The climate is excellent, the food world-renowned, and the
people unimaginably friendly, generous and hospitable. I strongly
encourage any of my colleagues to consider applying. I would also be happy
to do what I can to assist in making contacts with the Taiwanese
geographical community.****

Note: the Deadline is very close (July 15); I only received this notice
today. ****

the One World One Health International Expert Consultation (Winnipeg,
Canada, 2009) and Operationalizing One Health (Stone Mountain, USA,
2010). Both the US CDC and the European External Action Service have
been instrumental in moving One Health forward towards implementation.

Call for Papers: Human Capital

*Call for Papers: Altérités*
(Voir ci-bas pour la version française)

Due to exceptional circumstances*, the deadline for submission for this
issue has been extended to *30 September 2012*.


Edited by Kim Turcot DiFruscia, Catherine Laurent Sédillot, Vincent Duclos
and Bernard Bernier

For the last thirty years, the concept of human capital has become a
reference in numerous social spheres, beyond its initial economic field
boundaries. Either right or left wing, in surplus labour contexts or in the
'knowledge economy', in corporative, industrial, educational or economical
environments, work management and social program designers 'think with' the
human capital concept, which is a prevalent element in neoliberal newspeak.

From complex and debatable origins, the human capital concept has been
diffused in its contemporary form by the Chicago neoliberal economists.
Deviating from classical economic thinking, commonly taking mankind as a
resource from which capital gain can be achieved through work extraction,
the contemporary neoliberal concept of human capital goes beyond the work
field to offer a two-sided conception of capitalist subjectification. On
one hand, the human capital concept refers to the idea that, as a
production means for a capitalist organization or for 'society' itself,
human capital is an investment site (in health, education, training,
morality) of which a profitable return is expected. On the other hand,
human capital refers to all the personal characteristics that an individual
(his qualification, skills, talents, but also his aptitudes, experiences
and personal qualities) can develop and use in a productive manner. Bearing
witness to the absorption by economy of all competitive values, self
capitalisation is inherent to the human capital concept. It is nevertheless
represented by its promoters as the humanization of economic thought and
rationality, now coherent with the nature of homo oeconomicus. The success
of the human capital concept is to be an indicator and instigator of
profound social, political, cultural, ideological and anthropological
transformations. The present issue of Altérités wishes to elaborate these
changes from an anthropological perspective.

We suggest contributors consider the following points:

* 1-* Theoretical and historical analysis of the human capital concept,
as well as the analysis of its entry into economic, political and social
fields. From what sources and what contexts was the concept developed,
adopted and diffused? In accordance with which ideological, political and
social transformations? With what logic and effect?

*2- * Ethnographies of programs, initiatives and milieus that refer to
or work with the human capital concept (for example corporate social
responsibility programs, development initiatives, new public policies but
also educative ideologies, psychological approaches, management and work
methods, etc.).

* 3-* Explorations of the human capital concept, its meanings,
applications and interpretations in various sites and by the different
protagonists who appropriate or promote it as well as those who resist or
criticize it.

*** For now over four months, Quebec has been the site of an unprecedented
student strike. In support of the movement, we felt that the deadline for
submission should be extended. The very meaning given to higher education
(the mission of universities, etc.) has proven to be central to this
protest movement (which for instance has been associated with the boycott
of a product, instead of a legitimate strike). As such, it has provided an
occasion to think about human capital in relation with neoliberal
management of higher education. Any contributions related to the important
questions raised by this conflict are most welcome.

Depuis trente ans, la notion de capital humain s'impose comme référence,
au-delà des frontières du champ économique, dans d'innombrables espaces
sociaux. À gauche comme à droite, dans des contextes de surplus de main
d'oeuvre comme dans les « économies du savoir », les milieux politiques,
corporatifs, éducatifs, les industries du développement et celles de la
santé, les gestionnaires du travail et les designers de programmes sociaux
« pensent avec » le concept de capital humain, élément courant de la
novlangue néolibérale.

D'origines complexes et débattues, le concept de capital humain est diffusé
sous sa forme contemporaine par les économistes néolibéraux de Chicago.
S'il relève de la pensée économique classique d'appréhender l'être humain
comme une ressource de laquelle extraire une plus-value par le travail, la
notion néolibérale contemporaine de capital humain déborde le champ du
travail pour proposer une conception biface de la subjectivation
capitaliste. D'une part, la notion de capital humain renvoie à l'idée que,
en tant moyen de production d'une organisation capitalistique comme de « la
société », le capital humain est un site d'investissements divers (en
santé, en éducation, en formation, en moralité) duquel un retour profitable
est attendu. D'autre part, le capital humain réfère à l'ensemble des
caractéristiques personnelles possédées par l'individu (ses qualifications,
ses compétences, ses talents, mais aussi ses aptitudes, expériences et
qualités personnelles) qu'il peut développer et mettre à profit à des fins
productives. Signifiant l'absorption par l'économique de toute valeur
concurrente, la capitalisation de soi inhérente au concept de capital
humain est néanmoins représentée par ses tenants comme une humanisation de
la pensée économique, maintenant cohérente avec la nature de l'homo
oeconomicus. Le succès du concept de capital humain est à penser comme
indicateur et instigateur de profondes transformations sociales,
politiques, culturelles, idéologiques et anthropologiques. Ce sont à ces
transformations que le présent numéro d'Altérités souhaite réfléchir depuis
une perspective anthropologique.
Nous invitons les contributeurs à considérer les pistes suivantes :

*1-* L'analyse théorique et historique de la notion de capital humain, de
même que l'analyse de sa pénétration des champs économique, politique et
social ainsi que du sens commun. À partir de quelles sources et dans quels
contextes la notion a-t-elle été développée, adoptée et diffusée? En
résonnance avec quelles transformations idéologiques, politiques et
sociales? Dans quelles logiques et avec quels effets?

*2-* L'ethnographie de milieux, de programmes, d'initiatives, de politiques
qui réfèrent à la notion de capital humain (par exemple: programmes de
responsabilisation corporative, initiatives de développement, nouvelles
politiques publiques, mais aussi idéologies éducatives, approches
psychologiques, méthodes de gestion, de travail, etc.).

*3-* L'exploration des significations, utilisations et interprétations de
la notion de capital humain, dans les milieux et chez les différents
acteurs qui se l'approprient ou en font la promotion comme chez ceux qui y
résistent ou la critiquent.

*** Depuis plus de quatre mois, le Québec a été le lieu d'une grève
étudiante sans précédent. En guise de support à ce mouvement, nous avons
ressenti le besoin de repousser la date limite de réception des

du sens donné à l'éducation supérieure, du rôle social des universités. Les
récents événements ont ainsi donné l'occasion de réfléchir à la notion de
capital humain en lien avec la gestion néolibérale des institutions
d'enseignement supérieur. Toute contribution aux importants enjeux soulevés

PhD opportunity - Northern research

1. The University of Aberdeen invites applications for three PhD
on the theme of Northern Colonialism: Historical Connections, Contemporary

These studentships are part of the University's strategic investment in
northern research and aim to foster path-breaking interdisciplinary
research on the processes and impact of colonialism in the North. The
Northern Colonialism programme builds upon existing expertise in
Anthropology, Archaeology, History and Geology and is structured around
three themes: Economies and Polities, Environments, and Cultural

Doctoral students will undertake ethnographic, archaeological, archival,
museum and/or material culture research to consider the intersections of
history, colonialism, and contemporary social life in The North. The North
is defined here not so much by latitude as by the intersection of climatic,
environmental, historical, geopolitical and cultural conditions, all of
which come together to give the region a significance for the future of
life on earth quite out of proportion to its relatively sparse human

CFP: Anthropology and Imagination - ASAANZ Annual Conference 2012

Subject: CFP: Anthropology and Imagination - ASAANZ Annual Conference 2012
Reply-To: Lorena Gibson <lorenagibson@GMAIL.COM>

Dear all,

The Association of Social Anthropology of Aotearoa/New Zealand is holding
its annual conference from 8-10 December 2012 at Victoria University,
Wellington, New Zealand. The Call for Papers is below and the website will
be available soon.

Call for Papers:


Imagine yourself suddenly set down surrounded by all your gear, alone on a
tropical beach close to a native village, while the launch or dinghy which
has brought you sails away out of sight… (Malinowski 1922:4)

Is there a distinct anthropological way of imagining the world? How might
we as anthropologists imagine our discipline, our objects of study and the
relationship between them? This conference will explore the imaginative
processes that shape and emerge from the anthropological project.

At its core anthropology demands an imaginative leap by comparatively
challenging the naturalness of one's own cultural world. But imagination
also drives the transformation and reinvention of the discipline.
Postcolonial and postmodern anthropologists, for example, sought to
re-imagine anthropology, the politics of knowledge and the discipline's
place in the world. This project continues in the context of
globalisation, and Appadurai (2000:6) has called on anthropology to
refigure the research imaginary in order to capture emerging transnational
flows and disjunctures. Recognising the role of imagination, he argues,
attends to “a faculty that informs the daily lives of ordinary people in
myriad ways: it allows people to consider migration, resist state
violence, seek social redress, and design new forms of civic association
and collaboration across national boundaries.”

Imagination, while clearly evident in artistic processes, is equally
present in the worlds of science, in technological, "rational‟ processes
such as Development, and in political movements such as the recent Occupy
movements. Such practices invite people to imagine new and possible social
forms and subjectivities. Attending to imagination thus allows us to
understand both the agency and ingenuity of our participants, and how they
make do within the confines of everyday life.

We invite papers and panels that interpret and critically reflect on the
conference theme in its broadest sense. We also welcome abstracts from
anthropologists who feel their research falls outside the bounds of this
theme. Potential themes for panels and papers could include, but are not
limited to, the following:

What is the role of imagination in ethnography, for example in conceiving
a research topic, conducting fieldwork, analysing findings, creating
research relationships, and writing ethnographic texts? How might we
imaginatively re-craft or extend anthropological methods?
What can the concept of imagination yield analytically for anthropology?
How does imagination figure as a social practice in a range of
ethnographic settings, and does the concept have cross-cultural
How do different groups and publics imagine anthropology?
How is anthropology re-imagining its analytical frameworks, for example in
concepts such as agency and structure, morality and ethics, gender,
kinship, culture, political ecology, migration, globalisation, capitalism,
development, mobility, tourism, class, sexuality, race, social movements,
and more?
What is the relationship between imagination and creativity, hope, desire,
utopia and fantasy, and ideas of the real and possible?
How are imagined communities shaping contemporary life, such as online and
transnational groups?
How is the university and education being reimagined through evolving and
emerging forms of governance, and what is anthropology‟s role in shaping
such imaginings?
How might we imagine the future of anthropology?

Canadian Federation of University Women -- Bill C-38, Employment Equity Act and the Federal Conractors Program

On Monday, CFUW submitted a Brief to the Standing Committee on Finance in
which we included a recommendation to remove Clause 602 from Bill C-38,
which will amend the Employment Equity Act. We made sure to point out that
the changes to the Employment Equity Act had no clear connections to the

program are discussed in the budget. You can read our brief here if you are
