Tenth Annual GASC in Nagoya, Japan

The Tenth Annual Generative Anthropology Summer Conference was held June 17-19 at the Kinjo Gakuin University in Nagoya, Japan. The organization by Matthew and Emi Taylor and Kiyoshi Kawahara was flawless and included simultaneous translations of many of the papers. The conference was dedicated to the memory of René Girard, who passed away last November.

Next year’s conference, our eleventh, will be held at the University of Stockholm, Sweden, in early June 2017.
