Are you teaching, working or researching in the field of Anthropology and Education?

My name is Emma Ford and I am the Education and Communications Officer of the Royal Anthropological Institute & Secretary to the IUAES Commission on Anthropology and Education. This August in Poland, three panels on Anthropology and Education will take place at the IUAES 2019 Inter-World Congress (27-31 August 2019). IUAES stands for the International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences. The IUAES is the largest world forum of anthropologists and ethnologists, with members from more than fifty countries.

We’ve got panels on teaching, learning, games, technology, resources and how anthropology can be of value to teachers.
If you’d like to submit a paper abstract to any of the three panels, further info about each one is below.
The call for papers is now open but closes on 15 February 2019.

Info about the event as a whole can be found here:

If you have any questions about the event or want to know more about what presenting a paper would entail, please contact me, Emma Ford:
