Conference by Francisco Ferrándiz at the V International Congress of Anthropology AIBR

V International Congress of Anthropology AIBR

THINKING CULTURES CHANGING WORLDS

9 – 12 July, Madrid

 

 

Francisco Ferrándiz will close the V International Congress of Anthropology with a conference entitled “Exhume Francisco Franco? Ethnography of a descent to the depths of the Valley of the Fallen”.

Under the motto “THINKING CULTURES, CHANGING WORLDS”, AIBR celebrates its annual meeting in Madrid, from 9 to 12 July. This Congress poses the challenge of questioning the very concept of culture, which like any concept is limited by our values, structures, languages and criteria. Thinking cultures becomes a way of moving those limits. It is another way of understanding the world, of understanding the worlds and therefore of changing them.

On this occasion the AIBR Association has the collaboration of the Department of Social Anthropology and Spanish Philosophical Thought of the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM) and the Research Group Anthropology, Diversity and Coexistence of the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM) as co-organizers. As in previous editions, the Congress will bring together students and professionals from all over the world who devote themselves to anthropological research in all its fields..

XXII Ankulegi Anthropology Conference (2019)

“Anthropology in the face of death”

San Sebastián, 12 April 2019

 

Zoé de Kerangat and Miriam Saqqa Carazo will take part in the XXII Ankulegi Anthropology Conference, “Anthropology in the face of death”, which will be held on 12 April at the San Telmo Museum in San Sebastián. The conference was organised by the Ankulegi association and the Department of Philosophy of Values and Social Anthropology of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU).

Death is present in all societies and times, although, like any biological and social process at the same time, it manifests itself in very different ways depending on the cultural and historical context. The XXII Ankulegi Anthropology Conference, linked to the exhibition “Heriotza. Ante la muerte”, organised by the San Telmo Museum, will focus this year on death and its multiple representations and meanings: How is death faced and how is it communicated? What form do funeral ceremonies and rituals take? What are the characteristics of the process of mourning, mourning or the search for meaning and recomposition after a death? What relationship do the living establish with corpses? How are the dead dismissed and how are the dead remembered? What is their presence in society (symbolic, ghostly, spiritual, festive)?

A Change of Aesthetics: Citizen Ruptures in the Spanish Transition

A course conducted by Germán Labrador

24, 25, 28, 30 and 31 January 2019

Museo Reina Sofía, 5pm / Sabatini Building, Workshops

 

This course, with its design rooted in the exhibition The Poetics of Democracy. Images and Counter-Images from the Spanish Transition, explores the imaginary of 1970s Spain from a central hypothesis: the articulation, in the confrontation with Francoism and post-Francoism, of citizens’ breakaway resulting from an upsurge in certain aesthetic practices. Through these practices, new political subjects were shaped in opposition to the regime’s institutions and forms of discipline. This other society included women, young people, neighbourhood groups and “dangers to society”, the last of which refer to the Francoist Law that stigmatised those considered a menace to the regime, from beggars to homosexuals. In parallel, the emergence of this multifarious civil society and its struggles for emancipation questions the limits of the dictatorship and the transition to democracy, its practices producing and organising alternative forms of culture and social and urban models, in addition to ways of life referred to here inside this framework as ‘transitional’. The documents of such actions and proposals constitute a democratic archive, susceptible to questioning, in exhibition terms, and intervened in from the present. Thus, to think about the transitional legacy means to reflect upon the origins, devices and limits of democracy, and imagine its possible transformations.
