We hereby invite you to submit an abstract for our panel ‘Conflicts on
the Move’ that will be held during the annual AAA meeting between
November 17-21 2010 in New Orleans.

We are organizing this panel as PACSA (Peace and Conflict Studies in
Anthropology) a network of the EASA (European Association of Social
Anthropology).

Conflicts on the Move

Erella Grassiani (VU University, Netherlands), Barbara Karatsioli
(EHESS, Paris), Nerina Weiss (University of Oslo, Norway)

Recent studies have focused on peace and conflict as particular sites of
circulation. Thus Nordstrom (2009, 2010) has documented the linkage
between political violence, global supply chains and the complex
relationships of extra/legal and extra/state networks around the world.
Along these ‘fracture lines’ economics, politics and identities are
crafted, and power accumulated and abused. But also ideas are exchanged
and appropriated. New war techniques, different ideologies, and
legitimate forms of peace building and peace keeping are constantly on
the move, and circulate across spatial and temporal boundaries.
Knowledge on warfare for example has for years circulated around the
globe, as the US intelligence in the Latin American dictatorships or
Israel’s export of anti-terrorism war-craft indicate. Private security
firms offer their services in different conflicts, as the mujahedin
warriors have migrated from conflict to conflict. The circulation of
people and ideas has influenced the ways wars are fought and violence is
legitimated. The circulation and thus perhaps the standardization of
certain values have also an impact on orders of justice and peace
building, which again presupposes certain understandings of the
political and the state.
The session aims at further exploring this circulation of ideas, images
and people. How are concepts of peace and conflict framed, how are they
appropriated and used? Anthropology provides analytical tools and frames
for examining the means by which violence is concealed, naturalized and
blurred (Ben-Ari 2010), and has at its focus the complexity of social
processes, at the heart of which is the construction of meaning of
violence (Coulter 2006). Comparative anthropological perspectives might
even contribute to analyse conflicts that are not directly accessible
(Robben 2009). We encourage contributions to delineate, how
anthropology, its analytical and methodological approaches may
contribute to a better understanding of these circulations, and thus a
better understanding of conflicts and peace building attempts in our

We invite you to submit an abstract of no more than 250 words to Erella
Grassiani at [log in to unmask] before the 23rd of March 2010.
