Event: Why the World Needs Anthropologists

Why the World Needs Anthropologists

This international symposium attempts to erase the boundary between “pure” and “applied” anthropology, and presents opportunities for establishing long-lasting cooperation between academics and practitioners.

Contemporary demands give us no time to get stuck by internal tensions and divisions within the discipline – anthropologists need to come out of their “ivory towers” and come to terms with the increasingly prominent economic, political and ecological challenges of our world.
