The Eleventh Annual Generative Anthropology Summer Conference was held at Stockholm University on June 10-12, hosted by GA stalwart Marina Ludwigs, who is a professor in the English Department here. It featured three keynote speakers and 23 other sessions (including three Skype sessions). There were presentations by a remarkable 14 first-time participants, many of them graduate students and junior faculty.
We thank Stockholm University and its English Department for their contribution to the conference, as well as for the friendly, positive (and apolitical) atmosphere that reigned throughout. Special thanks are due Marina for putting it all together, as well as to Ben Matthews, who built the conference website and provided other assistance, Skyping in his paper from Australia.
The banquet in one of Stockholm’s classic waterfront restaurants was also a great success. Participants enjoyed the long, cool, sunlit June evenings in this northern city where the streets remained crowded until midnight, as well as its many museums and historic monuments.
Plans are already under way for next year’s conference, to be hosted by Magdalena Złocka-Dąbrowska in Warsaw.
