Workshop: Queer Devices
On September 11-13 ENQA held its first workshop at the Central European University, Budapest. It gathered twenty scholars and scholar-activists from different countries, in different stages of their careers, to discuss their work, research collaborations, publishing initiatives, and network. The workshop organized two open panels at CEU on queer anthropology and the current refugee crisis in Europe, with specific focus on the Hungarian and southeast European perspectives.

The panel was well attended and spurred a roundtable debate among key participants/presenters. This was recorded and later transcribed into an essay format, as it will be published in an issue of Ethnos: Journal of Anthropology, edited and with an introduction by Mark Graham (Stockholm University).

Panel: Same-sex Sexualities and Ethnic Minorities in Europe (P080). EASA Conference Tallinn 2014.

Co-sponsored with the Gender and Sexuality Network, this panel, too, generated much interest and thus assisted in building the profile of ENQA and the critical study of gender and sexuality in European Anthropology.

Business meeting at the EASA conference in Tallinn, 2014.

ENQA organized its first business meeting at the EASA conference, with about twenty-five attendees. We discussed plans for publishing, meetings, network building, organization, and support work more generally. We are working to follow up on these conversations in the year ahead, with particular focus on building support networks, furthering our digital communication platforms, and organizing events.
