Climate Anthropology Network Launch

Come and find out about the ASA’s new climate anthropology network and how you can get involved.

Are you an anthropologist working on climate change? Or are you working on climate change and interested in what anthropology might have to offer?

Join us at PeopleFest in Manchester for the inaugural meeting of the ASA Climate Anthropology Network. We will kick off with a discussion of how the network came about and we’ll share a few examples of climate anthropology.

We’ll then open the floor to hear from you about what the Climate Anthropology Network should focus on in its first year.Interested, but busy or not nearby? Sign up to our network mailing list here:
