New IUAES World Congress Publications

The ASA monograph based on the 2013 IUAES World Congress in Manchester, World Anthropologies in Practice, has now been sent out to ASA members.

But I am also pleased to announce that, thanks to Simone Abram, one the liveliest  debates from the congress has now been published in print form in the journal Identities. The motion debated was “The free movement of people around the world would be Utopian”. It is obviously more topical and timely than ever in the light of developments in Europe since the debate originally took place in August 2013.

The motion was proposed by Bela Feldman-Bianco (State University of Campinas), and seconded by Noel Salazar (University of Leuven). It was opposed by Shahram Khosravi (Stockholm University), and seconded by Nicholas de Genova (then at Goldsmiths’ College), with Simone Abram (Durham University) in the chair.
