Election results 2013 Election results
At the beginning of the year EASA members voted for a new executive committee, and they met in Tallinn in February and allocated responsibilities. Noel Salazar was elected unanimously as President.


Noel SalazarLetter from the President
Noel Salazar writes to the membership about the future of EASA:
The job insecurity of anthropology students and recent graduates, the precarious state of some anthropology departments and the endangered funding of anthropological projects have made it necessary for EASA to start lobbying at the European level.

The new Executive Committee is keen to activate the presence of the association on Facebook and Twitter. We are already using these channels to promote association news and events, but wish more widely to use social media to further the reach of anthropological interests and agendas across and abroad Europe.

NetworksNews from the Networks
The EASA Networks have expanded in number and become very active. This is good news for EASA as it proves the vitality of anthropologists and their engagement both with the discipline and with the pressing problems that beseech us. It is also an expression of growing interaction and collaboration among anthropologists in Europe and beyond.
