General assembly of the new federative association of anthropology (in France)

Organised by the Comité de liaison et de travail de l’anthropologie en France (CLETAF, Liaison and work committee of anthropology in France)

The CLETAF, set up by Assises de l’anthropologie et de l’ethnologie en France (Dec. 2007) to prepare for the establishment of a new umbrella association of anthropology (in France) and provide a founding congress, decided to convene a General constituent Assembly of the new Association:

Saturday, January 17th, 2009
9:00 am – 12:30 am
Theater of EHESS (École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales)
105, bd Raspail – 75006 Paris (France)

The Assembly will aim to establish the new association:

In a period where this science is threatened and where each of anthropologists is facing some complex choices, this new association aims to allow anthropologists both individuals as associations of anthropology, to gather our forces, to exchange experiences and to reaffirm the importance of our discipline in our contemporary public debates.

This assembly is open to everybody interested in the anthropology and ethnology (in France).
All welcome!


My opinion remains the same: the new entity should be created to replace two other competitors and historically ineffective today, the AFA and APRAS. But the AFA seems to drag its feet to wind itself up to the benefit of a strong one voice. As a result, we may have one more association... Let’s see, and participate.
