VANDA aims at bringing together scholars from various fields of anthropology, social sciences and humanities. We are dedicated to creating a conference that is as green and socially inclusive as possible. Furthermore, we aim at offering opportunities for exchange and networking among the participants through a wide variety of social activities.

VANDA is meant to be more than a mainstream conference. It includes an interactive Young Scholars’ Forum, where graduate students can network, receive mentoring and practical advice from experienced researchers. Apart from the classic conference formats, session organizers are free to introduce their own creative formats.

For the Regular Conference please submit a descriptive abstract of your session (90 min per slot) in English that should not exceed 350 words - any research topic is welcome. Session organizers (PhD required) are free to choose their session formats (e.g. classic presentations, panel discussion, round table etc.), albeit the included presentations are bound to a maximum of 15 mins per person. Please add a short description of your chosen format to your session abstract.

Young scholars (BA or MA required) are welcome to submit a session to the Young Scholars' Forum. The requirements are the same as those for the regular conference (see above), the only additional one being the inclusion of at least one experienced researcher (PhD) as discussant. We encourage applicants to approach experienced scholars on their own.

We are eager to receive your session submissions (deadline March 1st)
