I apologize for cross-posting, but I'm hoping that you will do me the kindness of forwarding the following announcement to your students. I'm a US anthropologist living in Florence since 2006, conducting research and working with a range of study abroad programs, and I'm drawing on that combined experience to offer my own summer program in ethnographic research methods. Please feel free to contact me for any more information or just to talk about urban research in Europe. Grazie mille!
I am currently seeking abstracts for a panel on race and racism in post-socialist contexts for the American Anthropological Association’s annual meeting in San Jose, CA, November 14–18, 2018. Below is the tentative panel title and abstract (to be revised based on common themes/questions across the abstracts).
Panel title: From Friendship of Peoples to Racism: Constructing Race and Resisting Racism in Post-Socialist Societies

18th Annual Aleksanteri Conference "LIBERATION – FREEDOM – DEMOCRACY? 1918–1968–2018"
Dates and venue: 24–26 October 2018, University of Helsinki, Finland
The Aleksanteri Institute of the University of Helsinki will hold the 18th Annual International Aleksanteri Conference aiming to bring together scholars, experts, and advanced graduate students from a variety of disciplines such as history, political science, sociology, geography, law, economics, and media and cultural studies.
This five-day Summer School and two-day Seminar – organised and hosted by Anglia Ruskin University under the auspices of the International Urban Symposium (IUS) – will bring together social anthropologists, sociologists, urban planners, architects, and human geographers committed to empirically-grounded analysis of cities in order to examine a number of pressing methodological and theoretical questions relating to urban change.
