*CALL FOR PAPERS*



*INTERSECTIONS OF HUMANITARIANISM*

*Kickoff workshop of the EASA Anthropology of Humanitarianism Network (AHN)*

Goettingen, 01-03 November 2019





What does humanitarianism look like when it intersects with the state and
the military? Or with the local ways of giving? What sort of help are we
dealing with when humanitarian forms of reasoning and practice become
intertwined with “that which is not humanitarianism”, to paraphrase Gupta
(1995: 393)? Anthropological studies have suggested that a lot of work has
to be invested into keeping up the boundaries of humanitarianism (Fassin
2012, Dunn 2018, Gilbert 2016). The result of this work has been a loose
network of aid that moves throughout the world and replaces, suspends, or
otherwise sidesteps state sovereignties in an attempt to save lives
(Redfield and Bornstein 2011, Ticktin 2014, Schuller 2016, Ramsey 2017).

In this workshop, we will focus on what sort of hybrids emerge when,
instead of maintaining its boundaries, humanitarianism intersects with
other ways of thinking and acting. What kind of politics does this enable
or prevent (cf. Feldman 2018)? What types of social dynamics, positions,
and exclusions take place in such cases? We invite papers that explore the
following five thematic strands:



1.      Humanitarianism and voluntarism: What happens when humanitarianism
becomes intertwined with vernacular ideas about how to help others
(including activism, solidarity, or charity)?

2.      Humanitarianism and military: how is the relationship between
humanitarian aid and the use of military force evolving in the context of
transnational securitization and border management?

3.      Humanitarianism and development: How do large-scale humanitarian
initiatives relate to developmental projects?

4.      Humanitarianism and human rights: How does humanitarianization of
state politics and human rights look like?

5.      Humanitarianism and religion: Which moral configurations emerge as
part of humanitarian projects and how are they related to religious orders?



This will be the first meeting of the Anthropology of Humanitarianism
Network (AHN), founded in 2018 by the European Association of Social
Anthropologists (EASA), with an aim to provide a platform for a broad
discussion on the meanings and practices of humanitarianism and on the
possible future directions of an anthropological study of humanitarianism.
The kickoff workshop “Intersections of humanitarianism” will provide a
venue for the network members to meet in person, share ongoing research,
and make plans for the future development of the network.


If you are interested in presenting your research during the workshop,
please send an abstract of 200 words to [log in to unmask] as well as a
100-words-bio by 30 June 2019. The workshop is open to the public.



The workshop “Intersections of Humanitarianism” is supported by EASA,
Centre for Global Migration (CeMIG) of the Georg August University
Goettingen, and Chr. Michelsen Institute.
