SAC announces the Spring 2016 Conference to be Held in Portland, Oregon
“Wisdom Sits in Places:” Place, Space, and Consciousness
The Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness welcomes paper and panel proposals for its March 31-April 2, 2016 meeting at University Place Hotel in Portland, Oregon. We encourage submission of interdisciplinary and collaborative works.
In his book Wisdom Sits in Places, Keith Basso suggested that place making involves multiple acts of remembering and imagining which inform each other in complex ways. The 2016 Annual Meeting of the Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness will discuss how “wisdom sits in places” the ways in which people remember and imagine the realms in which they live. Panel and Paper Topics include: Ecopsychology, Virtual spaces and realities, Liminal places, Places and perception of time, Indigenous ways of knowing and place making, Ethnic, national, and political imaginings of place, Narratives and storytelling, Entheogens and psychoactive substances, Contested geographies and war zones, Climate change and ecological precarity, Natural disasters and gentrification, Art and place-making.
