Anthropologists often hope to change this world. Canadian anthropologists have long championed indigenous rights, ever since Frank Speck advocated in Ottawa for fishing rights for the Innu of Moisie River. CASCA still embodies this spirit. The IUAES was founded by people who hoped that anthropology could become a truly international discipline, bringing together people of all nations as equals. Both organizations thus were founded by people who want respectful relations between peoples, peace, and social justice.
This resonates well with the vision of Elder Commanda. I hope that anthropology can take up the oars that move our human canoe along those waters. Finally, this conference is only possible because of the work of many people on many committees who dedicated their time to this effort.
I personally thank everyone who made this conference possible through volunteer work, through funding, as well as by giving papers and just being here. Together, we can move anthropology and we can move the world! Il y a cinquante ans avait lieu en Ontario son premier rassemblement international pour la paix. Pourtant, en , notre monde semble se mouvoir dans une direction contraire. Chi miigwetch!
Merci beaucoup! Many thanks! Scott Simon, Ph. They will attend sessions and provide their teachings and guidance to anthropologists in a concluding session on Saturday afternoon. We thank our Indigenous Elders for their teachings, guidance and prayers: In so doing it highlights the promiscuous nature of the analytical space opened by the processes of life forms, things and ideas enmeshing through relationships in space and time.
Movement as renewal, growth and paths along which life can keep on going implies the potentialities of falling down, destruction or dying, which are also paths of becoming, sometimes as something else.
In the era of massive displacements caused by war, climate change, trafficking and economic desperation, we are called upon to make sense of movement through its gaps, dams, borders, and camps.
Such a sense of breakdown does not merely characterize space—it also affects perceptions of time. Amidst rising uncertainties and disappearances of experienced living possibilities, we must make sense of contexts marked by blockage and impasse.
On the other hand, emphasis on movement also points to the ways in which human lifeworlds and affective ecologies, as well as their pasts and futures, are continually imagined and remade in labile relation to an ever shifting, sometimes inchoate sense of the present. Attention to movement opens anthropology up to alternative and new arrays of life forms, including things like rivers, electricities, and chemical waste.
It also enables us to address imperatives to decolonize our discipline; and it implores us to explore the emergent life-making processes that become open to common improvisation, composition and hopeful futures. Worlds in motion; In what ways are worlds made or unmade through movement?
Alternatively, can new or remediated worlds arise out of obstructions such as enlightenment thinking and colonial imperatives and out of the knowledge and perception gaps that have arisen in their wake? What happens through lively cohabitations of organisms and things, undergoing continuous trans formation? How are existing dominant and emergent and re-emergent but ancient forms of knowledge brought to bear on world-making projects, their imaginaries and infrastructures?
How might we think new, pluralizing spaces for dialogue and exchange between historically constituted traditions and communities of difference?
Living landscapes; What analytical possibilities open up once we begin to see landscapes, not as static but as assemblages in motion? In other words, how do these living emplacements become part of us, just as we are part of them? How has this escaped science and how is it shyly weaving itself back into it in new ways? Moving bodies; How might bodily forms of life be understood as permeable rather then closed upon themselves as objects or species to know, protect or defend, and how have those been understood from a non-enlightenment perspective?
Moving beyond the physical body itself, how are we to conceptualize its location in novel and mobile lines of practice, experience, experiment, technology and everyday lives? In such lively bodily entanglements involving materialities, how do some movements promise increased vitalities and enhancement, while other movements promise elimination or slowing down? Relational movements; How can moving relationships be brought to the center of anthropological enquiries and analysis? What things, values and meanings need to move between those in relationship with each other, both to sustain and to shift the forms of those enmeshments and the labels by which they are described?
In what respects and how might relationships themselves be moving — of affect, values and things? In what ways is mobility itself rendered into a political-economic problem and a site of intervention? Who gets to move and how?
In what ways do the exigencies of the present also demand a shift in our own conceptual languages? Can political, economical, religious, ecological, indigenous movements be understood as directive yet unpredictable, underground and at the same time public, both liberating and dangerous, real and virtual? In the following pages you will find a concise guide to the conference, its venues and the city of Ottawa which we hope you will find helpful.
This is followed by a Restaurant guide and a few sightseeing suggestions. The general Timetable at the end of the book gives a quick overview of when receptions, panel sessions, plenaries and keynotes and other events are taking place.
The Events, workshops and meetings section ordered chronologically gives details of the activities taking place during the conference besides the panel sessions e. You will find the map showing the various venues we are using in town, as well as the map of campus building at the back of the book. The full academic programme, combined with the events, is detailed in the Daily timetable section which shows what is happening and where, at any given moment, in chronological sequence.
If you need any help interpreting the information in the conference book, please ask a member of the conference team at the reception desk.
There may be up to four papers per session. We are using panel rooms at a time, so any one panel is up against that number of alternatives. The start times of each panel are shown in the respective abstract section and are also indicated in the Daily timetable. In most panels, the time allocated per paper will be minutes, but this may vary depending on how convenors have structured their sessions.
The keynotes and plenaries will take place in Auditorium at the Marion Hall which sits people. Panels will be spread over various buildings on the University of Ottawa campus, all within walking distance of each other and the reception and catering area. When looking for the location of your panel, please pay attention to the building code that is the first part of the location reference. For example, if the location of your panel is marked as DMS , this means that the panel will take place in room in the Desmarais Building.

Wednesday 3rd May This lab builds on the work of engaged co-researchers Inuit and non-Inuit interested in creating community radio for and by urban Inuit communities.
This lab functions as a workshop and is divided into two parts. The first highlights the story of Nipivut, the Inuit radio show in Montreal.
Participants are introduced to interviewing techniques, and the opportunity to collect and record interviews and stories at the conference. This Inuit-centred lab, aimed at participants of all ages, explores the power and potential of community radio. Professor Georges Sioui Huron-Wendat , as well as officials from the two associations and the University of Ottawa, will give words of welcome. Practicing Anthropology with Indigenous Communities, MNT Subhadra Channa University of Delhi and Rodney Nelson Carleton University In recent years there has been a growing, disciplinary awareness of how anthropological theorizing about indigenous communities continues to be produced from predominantly Euro-American, metropolitan locations.
By the same token, there has been a multiplication of institutional protocols promoting research that is more cognizant of indigenous epistemologies, knowledge systems and methodologies. This workshop will explore the complex political, ethical and disciplinary stakes of the anthropology of indigeneity.
It will ask not only how anthropology might become more responsive to and inclusive of indigeneity, but also how the discipline itself might be substantively refigured and thus decolonized in the process.
It will also explore an indigenous perspective on anthropology and the value it continues to provide for communities. Promenade B The following commissions are meeting: Thursday 4th May Led by anthropologist David Jaclin, this lab builds on projects such as wildlife trafficking and green criminality in South Africa, and contemporary nomadism in Mongolia to engage with different media potentialities when doing anthropology.
Photo, video, sound and tailored polymedia configurations will be explored. More details of these themes can be found here: It is now broadly recognized that anthropology is a discipline well suited for robust public engagement, and yet the discipline has not realized its potential in this arena.
Multiple constraints likely explain this situation. The leaders of this workshop will address some of the most important, while also providing guidance on a range of items.
Themes will be guided in part by workshop participants, but are likely to include: The workshop is intended for graduate students and for anthropologists already working in and out of academia. William Commanda, Officer of the Order of Canada. Over the past decades, the University of Ottawa has presented him with an honorary doctorate degree, a justice award, offers a medical school scholarship in his name, launched the Aboriginal studies program at his teaching lodge, and created the William Commanda Hall in recognition of his many contributions to the university and the capital city.
This special workshop examines his fifty years of decolonizing, peace and environmental work and influence at local and international levels, and explores the relevance of his knowledge and wisdom for academic studies and cyber cartography. Margaret Critchlow and the award reception that follows.
Margaret Critchlow has done extensive research in Vanuatu, including nine fieldwork trips studying customary land tenure, colonial history, and development issues, among other topics.
A collaborative book written with Vanuatu women, House-girls Remember , gives voice to women who worked as maids in the colonial era. Recently, Dr. Critchlow has been working on co-housing projects in Canada, exploring new ways for living and thriving in communities. What it is that we look for with every submission?
What might capture our attention? What are our constraints? How is it we select reviewers, and why is that such a tough decision, as well as process? We will also share each step in the production to publication process: We will offer advice on publication strategies for senior graduate students post fieldwork and early career academics. The aim of the workshop is to demystify the process of getting published in Anthropologica.
Officials from the two associations will discuss plans for future conferences. Mardi 2 mai Mercredi 3 mai Jeudi 4 mai Consulter le site suivant en anglais pour de plus amples renseignements: Friday 5th May Quelles sont les contraintes avec lesquelles nous devons composer?
Saturday 6th May Undoubtedly, this is one of the essential challenges faced by anthropology in a universe profoundly transformed by the intensification of flows.
Since a quarter of a century, there has been a multiplication of the descriptions and analyses of these mutations. Yet, one cannot stick to a prudent and routine empiricism. This would be as if the position of the observer had not changed since the heroic epoch of the founding fathers of anthropology.
The simple fact of thinking the contemporary in terms of circulation, of frictions, and of tensions on the planet leads us to rethink our epistemological basics. In this orientation situated at the junction between anthropology and philosophy, we need to adopt a heraclitean point of view for questioning the issues of the present time. He has authored eighteen books, and numerous scientific articles, and held visiting positions at a number of prestigious international universities, including Brown, Stanford and New York University.
La biographie: On the other side of the planet, ancient Chinese thinkers were working with the knowledge of the propensity of movement in a substance -- the notion of li -- as the basis of knowledge.
What would modern knowledge have become if movement had been central in the debates of the ancient Mediterranean? The question comes to the fore in the Anthropocene, a time in which we begin to recognise changes in molecular flows -- of carbons, of nitrogens -- are altering the planet, yet our legal systems are ill-equipped to address a global commons that does not cooperate with territorial boundaries or with territorial law, or with the timeframes of electoral cycles.
Contemporary social sciences, I suggest, demand from us an intellectual mobility across different authorisations of reason that would persuade us that they are the only way to know. She has published numerous books and peer reviewed articles that traverse these themes; namely she writes on the question of knowledges, thinking through energies, water, space, skies, animals, time, tracks, fracking, oikos and omics within both indigenous and scientific contexts and epistemologies in sub saharan Africa as well as in the Brazilian site, thus offering a broad anchored theoretical contribution to reflect on Mo U vement across our four themes.
Her thought provoking keynote address invites us to think of the kinds of sciences decolonials have needed to imagines ways forward. Thursday, Friday, Saturday: In each plenary circle, four leaders in their fields, sitting in the four cardinal directions, will present their views and perspectives on the issues under discussion.
Each person has a turn to speak in an atmosphere of respectful and attentive listening. At the conclusion of the plenary circle, members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions and add their own voice to the discussion. David Jaclin University of Ottawa Participants: How are life forms and forms of life intrinsically imbued with others? New and disciplinarily innovative ethnographies have broadened our sense of what it means to live and act politically, disclosing the presence of the political in novel registers and locations.
Specifically, work on the anthropology of ethics has revealed subjectivity, affect, traditions of embodied practice and historically constituted difference, as the grounds from which political repertoires emerge. Research on the contemporary postcolony has relativized and revised canonical concepts of Western political theory, conceptualizing actually existing democratic movements in terms of distinctively postcolonial historical trajectories and modernities.
Most recently, engagements with technology and infrastructure illuminate the formative role of non-human, material agencies in political contestation and expression. At the broadest level, this plenary asks what the contemporary promise of an anthropological approach to the political consists in. What download does it give us on new and emergent movements?
In a global context of growing doubt about the ability of the formal political sphere to provide a space for meaningful political articulation, what new horizons and potentialities might political anthropology yield? Rodney Nelson Carleton University Participants: Our shared history has always been one of movement; and now we have new social movements like Idle No More that promise renewed relationships between Indigenous people and settler allies.
This is also a time for anthropologists to reflect on past practices and potential future relationships with Indigenous peoples, in Canada and abroad. How can we recover misplaced patrimony and correct biased representations of the Indigenous? How can we re-set the relationship between Indigenous peoples and anthropologists in a spirit of mutual respect and obligations to one another? How can anthropologists be influential in the design of a new, collaborative approach to relationships between Indigenous peoples and the scientific community at large?
What are the most important issues to address as we move forward into a shared future? Animating nature, animating capital: Many have sought to invert this relationship by decentring the human subject and drawing attention to such things as: These contributions have brought forward a number of provocative question, such as: What form might a post-human ethics take?
Still, questions remain about whether the strong emphasis on emergent properties and nonhuman agency in new materialisms can be reconciled with the critical force of earlier materialist analyses, which emphasized the centrality of capitalist labour relations and exploitation along lines of race, class and gender in constructing the contemporary world.
More-than-human moves: Paul Hansen Hokkaido University Participants: This is an epistemological move that underscores humans are ever-entangled with nonhuman animals, technologies, the environment and spiritual entities.
Anthropologists, perhaps due to the centrality of anthropos in the discipline, were slow to respond to broader moves to decentre the human subject. However, the publication of the special issue The Emergence of Multispecies Ethnography in the journal Cultural Anthropology in prompted a growing number of anthropologists to focus on more-than-human conceptualizations as valuable in understanding and describing everyday interactions.
This round table discussion focuses on how the nonhuman turn informs the work of participants and how they maneuver within the academy. Put concretely, why and how is the nonhuman turn prominent in your work and what are the implications of more-than-human research for methods and practices? Janice Graham Dalhousie University Participants: Martha Radice Dalhousie University Canadian anthropology does not have a code of ethics: CASCA is a rogue society.
But what are we really thinking? What values underpin our anthropological practice, and what do we need to advance our collective cause?
An ad hoc committee has been meeting at CASCA over the past few years with the aim of developing a non-prescriptive, living document that would guide us and guide others toward the principles we stand by. This would be useful for anthropologists practicing both within and outside the academy. All are welcome to join in. Mais que pensons-nous en fait? Quels valeurs sous- tendent notre pratique anthropologique et de quoi avons-nous besoin pour faire avancer notre cause collective?
Un tel document serait utile tant pour les anthropologues qui travaillent au sein du monde universitaire que pour ceux et celles qui travaillent en dehors de celui-ci.
Resurgent racism, ethno-nationalism and xenophobia in a world of mo u vement: Discussion will focus on deployments of racist expressions and actions, ethnic nationalisms and religious chauvinism in the exercise of power in colonial pasts and especially in present-day continuing-colonialism contexts. Voices of the precariat, MNT Organiser: Recognizing and representing the many types of precarity, participants will share insights and advice about teaching and scholarship in increasingly corporatized universities and colleges.
Collectively we will work to encourage a dialogue between precariously and stably employed faculty, and develop strategies to advocate for equality within academia. This roundtable is sponsored by the Network for Precarious Anthropologists. Brian Noble Dalhousie University Participants: This roundtable is meant to begin that national discussion, and is necessarily open-ended, reaching out to other anthropologists, mostly based outside the US. Several questions will be explored: What is the character of these anthropological engagements with Technoscience?
What sorts of projects are underway? How do worldly events and forces impinge on our work? How might productive conversations challenge this community of interest to grow in new directions? The 12 presenters will follow a format of 3-minute quick-reflex presentations meant to generate motion, with the idea of picking this up both post-session, and in more diverse and pointed panels, interchanges in subsequent CASCA and IUAES gatherings. Marie-Claude Haince University of Ottawa This Roundtable provides an opportunity to discuss cross-disciplinary feminist research and teaching that engages a broad range of issues concerning gender: Lori Burns whose interests include popular music and video, contemporary female musicians, representations of violence, narrative and lyric analysis; Nadia Abu-Zahra who has addressed equity and development through research on Palestinian resistance movements, the current refugee crisis, and leadership programs among Inuit youth; Ruksana Ahmed who has worked to improve communication strategies for health care among marginalized communities, and studies new forms of multicultural media; and Sharon Cook History and Education whose research has covered a broad spectrum of issues from gender and peace history, representations of working women in cigarette advertising, to developing curriculum on gender issues in for public education.
Gavin Smith University of Toronto Participants: Winnie Lem Trent University Conventionally the expanded reproduction of capital is achieved through the extraction of relative surplus value from labour exploitation or the appropriation of rents through financial instruments. These latter involve the devaluation of places and people through political, ideological and violent means.
Jasmin Habib Waterloo University Participants: In this roundtable, anthropologists who have fieldwork experience in Israel will discuss the practical as well as political limitations they have faced, along with the promise such research holds.

Resulting data are being shared as part of a global data ecosystem and risk reduction network.
LL-AS03 Ecological refugees: Changing social order under the condition of population decrease in Japan Goro Yamazaki Osaka University This paper explore the progress of population decreases from the perspective of the transformation of the local community and discuss how human and non-human actors alike articulate a society that is totally different from that of modern society.
Then again, for the more vulnerable strata of society, including refugees,the outcomes of globalization are frequently less promising. The ways that stewardship of the river is constituted by a collective of the human and non- human is considered with a focus on the worlding capacity of water. The river as basin, the river as place: I demonstrate that scales are discursive strategies for water governance with consequences for our hydrological futures.
Managing water through indigenous knowledge: Inter-state river water crisis governance and Indian federalism Vaishali Saxena Lucknow University Of late, Indian cooperative federalism has started spanning towards competitive federalism. This paper purports to examine the impact of this changing paradigm on interstate river water conflict management in India The making of a public resource: Multi-scalar water justice: An attention to justice is inextricable to systems-level solutions.
The change of Natural environment, resource management, and disaster prevention in the radiation disaster in the Marshall Islands Satoe Nakahara Chukyo University The Rongelap is one of atolls belonging to the Marshal Islands that suffered from the US nuclear bomb tests.

High noon robbery: Paper traces their struggle.
Sat 6th May, Covered here are various risk and disaster scenarios, ways and topics in which the anthropological perspective has become crucial. Risk after disaster: This paper presents a part of the results of an anthropological study about social consequences, and applies anthropology to examine the paradigm of new energetic development.
Faas San Jose State University In this paper, I discuss responders and experts working for nongovernmental organizations attempting to work with disaster-affected communities in the Ecuadorian highlands by adopting local practices in resettlement construction and administration, while imposing their own standards of practice.
Climate Change and Environmental Issues: We examine case studies from Atlantic Canada to discuss how various actors struggle to influence knowledge of risks to the marine environment, and authority over managing marine resources. This method could improve development project outcomes.
The joint production of knowledge through scientist-fishermen collaborations on the impact of aquaculture Donna Curtis Maillet University of New Brunswick Joint knowledge production JKP has gained popularity as a tool for the management of risk in marine environments. But what is actually meant by knowledge?
Politics and science in the risk society: In the s, local producers decided to obtain a PGI to protect their tradition. I consider the ways they used to take into account the existence of quite different groups of interests: An anthropological study on alcoholic beverages of Kinnura tribe in Sangla Valley Kinnura Himachal Pradesh Amanjot Singh Panjab University Chandigarh the alcoholic beverages have a very significant role in occasions, social gatherings, fair and festivals and rituals of kinnura tribe of Himachal Pradesh India.
Using anthropology in these context reveals significant meaning and heritage value of indigenous beverages of the tribe. Milpa system: The panel seeks to explore examples of local food models impacting communities and economies. The broader local food movement that focuses on local production and consumption must also take into account local food traditions if it is to remain successful. Un exercice en locavorisme: Food inter activism: It debates ecological performances ritualized by a movement of consumers and producers of organic foods as a way of sacralization of nature.
Banning the bottle: What happens when some residents attempt to minimize the distance that their local water travels, and when some residents wish to maintain the freedom to decide from where they source their water? Insects as food: Entomophagy in North-eastern India is the product of their traditional beliefs, food habits and available natural resources. It has its implications on the livelihood of the people and their culture.
By doing so, the papers aim to reflect on the everyday experiences of life and death in the face of global disasters and climate change. Waiting for the flood: Conflicting epistemologies of time impacted the perception of risk associated with the flood. A phenomenology of floods in North Bihar Luisa Cortesi Yale University An ethnographic narration of floods illuminates the gendered ways in which people understand their space, grade the disaster and evaluate risk.
Remembering floods, rethinking water: Refiguring the delta: How the reforestation of the mangrove, a priori, consensual, updates conflicts of use of the delta spaces but also conflicts of gender. National flows: It argues that the production of Turkish wetlands required the integration of international categories of wetlands into national imaginaries, as well as the material making and remaking of landscapes themselves.
This session aims to examine how taste may help peoples and communities acquire local food and drink. Atsushi Nobayashi National Museum of Ethnology, Japan This paper compares indigenous food and taste in historical documents with those appeared in modern recipes of the indigenous culinary dishes. I argue merits and demerits of the cuisine as the cultural heritage, which is an appliance of civilization, for the local foods and its taste.
Taste of fermentation: Culturally produced palatability makes the boundary between the fermented and the rotten unsettle and relational. This paper discusses the movement of regional fermented food into urban culinascape. I will thus show how durians, which can transmit it, are adapted to, and at the same time afford, the transmission of the taste within very local food pratices.
Edible insects and cultural perceptions Michelle Roberts Cali Sate University Sacramento and University of Nevada Reno This research looks at different cultural perceptions about insects as food by comparing ethnographic data from Southeast Asia and the United States. Why do some cultures accept insects as food while they repulse others? What makes an insect culturally appropriate to eat, and others inappropriate?
But in many Western cultures, they face considerable obstacles which go far beyond issues of sensory appreciation, as perceived food inappropriateness still hinders adoption. The documentation of animals destined to be food, and their relations to humans and each other, also has other effects, including making certain beings visible within institutions, and others unaccounted for. The changing meanings and values of pork in Denmark Martha Karrebaek University of Copenhagen This paper focuses on ongoing changes in Denmark with regard to the meaning of pork.
Communal meals in the village feasts of the Causse du Quercy: I pay special attention to the semiotics of the food served at these meals and to the metagastronomic discourses complementing the meaning of these meals Hardly speaking: By bringing within a single analytic field the exchange of words and things, it argues that the expression and concealment of desires within host-guest interactions is key to the reproduction of the local political economy.

I love the fact he openly talks about sex; the forbidden topic in Sri Lanka, like in many other Asian countries. By the end of the story, the author achieves his goal of normalizing the three letter word - "sex" within the Sri Lankan readers If that is his goal, which I'm sure is - looking at his other novels as well.

It's a beautifully written story, which also gives a different perception on the Sri Lanka's two most famous love stories; Daskon-Pramila and Lovina-Maitland. A disparate fable written about circadian lives of the bygone Lankans. Making rodi caste the centerpiece, the author has done a passable job to intrigue the reader.
But I personally dislike his use of language, withal certain words are way beyond one's perception. It's a beautiful story, predominantly about Punni intertwined by the stories of other individuals.
Sexuality holds a major chunk in this story yet the author hasn't utilized the subject in an enrapturing way. Most of the paragraphs wer A disparate fable written about circadian lives of the bygone Lankans. Most of the paragraphs were quite disturbing. Punni's gallantry is the best thing about this story and I adore the way she tackled and maneuvered whenever there was a controversy: View 2 comments.
Interesting for its treatment of caste. The use of magic realism is interesting but not always convincing. Too long! May 21, Ramzi rated it really liked it Shelves: I think I couldn't have said it better than Thevuni.
Simply loved the story telling ability of the author. Sep 17, Dulshani rated it really liked it. I have very mixed feelings about this book.
What I liked: But no, this was the Kandy Kingdom, and t I have very mixed feelings about this book. But no, this was the Kandy Kingdom, and the fat, deranged king drags her off to his harem. Pramila's resigned acceptance of her fate, Punna's bout with depression, her obsession for Daskon, the brutal caste system I much prefer this interpretation than her and the middle aged Maitland being starstruck lovers: And Maitland actually having genuine feelings for her in the face of her indifference adds a bittersweet touch.
What I didn't like: I didn't mind Punna's early display of supernatural powers. What I didn't like was how little these powers served as a plot device. It adds nothing to the plot.
This is the first book I've read in Sinhala that involves magical realism and mildly explicit depiction of sexuality, and in that perspective it seems that the author has done very well. A fantasized version of history, legends and folklore; an interesting read altogether but I'm doubtful I'd read it again.
Is this book based on a real research? If it is so the story I knew about mount lavinia is wrong.
