Anthropology of / in the future

Anthropology of / in the future

As part of the celebration of the SASA Institute of Ethnography’s 75th anniversary, a national scientific conference with international participation, “Anthropology of / in the future”, was held on the 8th and 9th September at the Viminacium Archaeological Park. The co-organizers of the scientific conference, which gathered 24 scientific workers both from home and abroad (the United Kingdom, Slovenia, Germany, Greece and Montenegro), were the SASA Institute of Ethnography and the Institute of Archaeology, Belgrade. The scientific conference was conceived as a discussion platform for ethnologists and anthropologists, professionally engaged in various scientific and professional institutions, on the future of anthropology as a discipline, but also on the world we live in. In this sense, the topics that were explored in the conference concerned, on the one hand, theoretical and methodological innovations in the discipline that are necessary for “coming to grips with” the modern world and, on the other hand, new fields and new topics that appear in the digital era. Some of the questions raised by this conference include: new information technologies, surveillance society, science in the Anthropocene, anthropology and environmental issues, the issue of migration in light of new technologies, anthropology and social media, etc. The conference was organized as three plenary lectures and five thematic sessions.

The organization of the scientific conference was supported by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development of the Republic of Serbia and Viminacium Archaeological Park.
