Interdisciplinary News: Anthropology Symposium

Each year, the South East DTC has an interdisciplinary competition to fund student-led interdisciplinary events.  Last October, the School of Anthropology and Conservation hosted a three-day Symposium “Repositioning the social at the heart of the anthropocene: A transdisciplinary dialogue”. The Symposium was generously funded by the ESRC and the School of Anthropology and Conservation, and was organised by four PhD candidates, Tony Knight, Viola Bizard, Laura Montesi, and Jan van der Valk. The symposium was aimed at students and scholars across the humanities and social sciences, willing to foster transdisciplinarity to a more critical and effective engagement with the challenges of the anthropocene.
