CFP – Panel on Himalayan Climate Change in London

The Royal Anthropological Institute and the British Museum (London) will be hosting a special conference in May 2016 examining Anthropology’s contribution to weather and climate research and discourse production. Himalayan anthropologists Ben Campbell and Andrea Butcher are co-convening a panel that will explore climate science, its evidence and associated policies, and their interaction with local experience and explanation in Himalayan societies. The focus is on anthropological method, but we do wish to consider climate science and its impacts in the wider policy context. We therefore welcome those contributing to projects of conservationists, engineers, governmental and non-governmental organisations working with climate change agendas, as well as those engaged in more “classical” anthropological research.

If you are interested in proposing a paper, please follow the link below:

The Call for Papers will remain open until Friday, 8th January 2016.
