Meeting Description:

The Conference on Anthropology & Sustainability in Asia is an international biennial conference. The first conference was held in 2012 in Bangkok, Thailand, and the 2014 conference will be held in Asia’s ‘City of Peace’: Hiroshima, Japan. CASA 2014 will begin with a welcome party on March 16 followed by a two-day interdisciplinary platform for scholars, researchers, policymakers, entrepreneurs, students, and practitioners on March 17 and 18. Selection of Hiroshima as the venue site provides the ideal backdrop for a conference that will draw researchers and scholars from around Asia to discuss the importance of anthropology in regards to the CASA 2014 theme: Anthropological Perspectives on Holistic Sustainability.

Call for Papers:

The 2014 Biennial Conference on Anthropology & sustainability in Asia invites scholarly interactions among academics, researchers, doctoral students, and representatives from industry, as well as think tanks, non-profit / non-governmental organization professionals to submit proposals by December 15, 2013.

Under the theme of Anthropological Perspectives on Holistic sustainability, CASA 2014 welcomes submissions from the following sub-themes and special topics:

- Linguistic sustainability

- Social sustainability
- Political sustainability
- Economic sustainability
- Archaeology and sustainability
