extends an invitation for international conference on anthropology of the senses


Transgressing visuality. Sensorial cultural practices.

Poznań, Poland

April 26-27, 2012


We search academic papers examining and interrogating the various critical and cultural contexts of the senses within anthropology/ethnography and the humanities. The main themes of the conference will focus mostly, but not exclusively, on:

- Devisualisation of the cultural/social anthropology as the alternative to traditional form of scientific knowledge production

- Sensualizing ethnography: theory and research methods

- Anthropology of the senses as theory of the extravisual and extratextual representation production

- Fieldwork as sensory experience

- Devisualisation as cultural trends: „new multimediality”

- Cultural hierarchies of the senses: ruling, posessing senses, creation of hierarchies of the senses

- Cultural practices of sensualizing social reality: managing of the perception

- Processes and forms of extravisual objects creation


Conference’s languages: English (20 minutes presentations should be extravisual)

Accommodation: free for all participants (April 26/27, 2011)

Conference’s fee: free

Deadline for the submission of proposals (abstracts – no longer than 250 words): January 15, 2012
