“Bridging the Collaborative Gap”
SEPTEMBER 25-27 2015
The Department of Anthropology at the University of Tennessee, through its program in Disasters, Displacement, and Human Rights (DDHR), is at the forefront of strengthening collaborations within anthropology and cultivating non-anthropological partnerships. The program graduates inter-disciplinarily trained researchers and practitioners who address natural and anthropogenic disasters, conflict and violence, historical and contemporary processes of displacement, and development.
The 2015 DDHR Conference, “Bridging the Collaborative Gap,” will explore and problematize the practice of collaboration at all levels. International researchers and practitioners who exemplify collaboration and/or cross-training within and/or outside of anthropology are particularly invited to participate. Moreover, since research and praxis within DDHR necessarily entails engagement of affected populations, we seek the participation of members of affected communities, especially those who have worked closely with anthropologists and other professionals.
Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to participate in all aspects of the conference.
