WELCOME!

Join us May 30 - June 2 at Western University for the 2020 annual conference of the Canadian Anthropology Society/Société Canadienne d’Anthropologie.  Meeting in conjunction with the Congress of the Humanitites and Social Sciences will offer many opportunities for interdisciplinary conversations, access to professional development activities, reconciliation programming and a wide range of academic and cultural events.

We acknowledge that Western University is located on the traditional lands of the Anishinaabek (Ah-nish-in-a-bek), Haudenosaunee (Ho-den-no-show-nee), Lūnaapéewak (Len-ahpay- wuk) (Len-ahpay-wuk) and Attawandaron (add-a-wnd-da-run) peoples, on lands connected with the London Township and Sombra Treaties of 1796 and the Dish with One Spoon Convenant Wampum.

With this, we respect the longstanding relationships that Indigenous Nations have to this land, as they are the original caretakers.  We acknowledge historical and ongoing injustices that Indigenous Peoples (e.g. First Nations, Métis, and Inuit) endure in Canada, and we accept responsibility as a public instiution to contribute toward revealing and correcting miseducation as well as renewing respectful relationships with Indigenous communities through our teaching, research and community service.

To PLAN YOUR VISIT, including information on accomodations, travel,
childcare, maps and local information and more see the Congress website here.
