Students of anthropology, new graduate teaching staff, and teachers across all sectors are welcome to attend.

We warmly welcome you to attend the inaugural annual Teaching Anthropology Conference, focusing on the theme Teaching Through Ethnography: Process, Product, Practice. Papers will focus on the value and challenge of engaging with ethnography in the teaching and learning of anthropology. In particular we hope to explore how teaching through ethnography is achieved in the context of constrained curricula, where educators may struggle to carve out the time and space required for critical engagement with ethnography.

We welcome dialogue about the value of teaching through ethnography as a fundamental but contested component of anthropological practice. We invite teachers and learners of anthropology to consider how they nurture ethnographic sensibilities, or ways of seeing.

In the spirit of encouraging dynamic approaches to engagement, the conference will incorporate traditional academic presentations with teaching tasters, hands-on exhibits, and a forum for sharing innovative practice.

We look forward to welcoming you to Oxford in December!
