Beyond perception conference

The previous blog topic by Anna on humans and animals is very prominent in the programme of the upcoming super-interesting “Beyond Perception” conference at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland.

perception, livelihood, dwelling, movement: Kamchatka's number one reindeer herder Kiriak Petrovich in the front of his nomadic dwelling and his horses. Both humans and animals moved to Kamchatka from Yakutia in the 19th century

The conference takes key topics of Tim Ingold’s work as starting points and explores in five sessions how researchers – from anthropology and also other disciplines – have worked with these ideas in their work. Ingold’s work has inspired a whole generation of anthropologists well beyond the North, not least because his ideas are so inviting for critical ethnographic scrutiny and discussion. As Arctic Anthropology has been a lot about human-animal relations, the perception of the environment in general and movement, this multidisciplinary conference will surely be extremely inspiring for any of our readers to attend. Early bird registration is now open until July 1. Check out their website here.
