Events of ENQA
ENQA at EASA2018
ENQA is looking for paper, panel, and roundtable submissions for the upcoming EASA meeting in Stockholm in August 2018. All members are encouraged to submit papers and to organize panels and roundtables with an ENQA-theme. Should you have an idea for a paper, a panel or a roundtable, please submit it. ENQA's visibility depends directly on its member's contribution and their willingness to organize events at the EASA meeting.
Please feel free to contact ENQA (enqaeasa(at)gmail.com) should you have an idea for a panel or a roundtable but are missing the right network and connections to organize it or if you feel like it would be a good idea to motivate people up front to send in papers for your panel or if you just don't know how to go about organizing a panel/roundtable. We will do our best to help you and to spread the message among ENQA members via our mailing list and Facebook page.
You can access more information about the upcoming meeting, its theme, and submission rules following this link: easaonline.org/conferences/easa2018/index.shtml

Workshop: Queer Devices

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.
Panel: Whatever is Happening to the Critical Study of Gender and Sexual Diversity in
EASA Conference Tallinn 2014.
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
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.
