Events of the Anthropology of Mining Network

Mining temporalities: ideas, experiences and politics of time in extractive industries. Panel at EASA2016.
Convenors: Lorenzo D'Angelo, University of Milano-Bicocca
Robert Pijpers, University of Oslo
Chair Sabine Luning, Leiden University
Discussant: Samuel Spiegel, University of Edinburgh

During the 2016 EASA conference in Milan the network has successfully organized the panel ´Mining Temporalities´. During the panel we discussed the various ways in which (ideas and perceptions of) time and temporality play a role in natural resource extraction. Interest in the panel was remarkable with 23 submissions.


During EASA2016 the network also hosted its first network meeting. During this meeting, the convenors gave an update about the past activities and the attendants discussed future activities: a newsletter (spread via the mailing list), a network event next year and mini-profiles to be published on the networks website. Hedda Haugen (University of Newcastle) has been appointed to prepare and coordinate the newsletter. In addition, the two network convenors have been re-elected and will continue to serve for the next two years.
