2016 Contemporary Ethnography Across the Disciplines Hui

The fourth international Contemporary Ethnography Across the Disciplines (CEAD) 2016: Ethnographic Imaginings: Place, Space, and Time will take place between 15-18 November 2016.

Sponsored by the Association for Contemporary Ethnography Across the Disciplines, the hui will move from the beautiful campus of the University of Waikato in Hamilton in Aotearoa New Zealand to Cape Town, South Africa.

The conference will take place in the stunning surrounds of University of Cape Town (UCT) campus. Sessions are housed in the newly opened Centre for African Studies (CAS) Gallery and the Snape Building.

Four keynote speakers are confirmed:

César A. Cisneros Puebla, Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana, Iztapalapa;

Keyan G. Tomaselli, University of Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa;

Jean Clandinin, University of Alberta;

and Nolwazi Mkhwanazi, University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa.

The move to the African continent—and then to South America (Santiago, Chile) in 2018—marks a significant turn towards truly internationalizing the Association and the hui itself.

The CEAD itself can provide a touchstone for its delegates, a biannual oasis for intellectual and spiritual replenishment and renewal. Every year seems to get better with this group, and 2014 was no exception. Our keynotes earned standing ovations, and the ACEAD was incorporated as an Aotearoa/NZ Association. The official name is "The International Contemporary Ethnography Across the Disciplines Association Incorporated," and all who have been delegates of this hui (2010, 2012, 2014) are de facto members. So, to keep it straight: ACEAD—Association of CEAD (established in 2014); CEAD—conference/hui.

Expand your worldview with CEAD! With us, see the Southern Hemisphere: in 2016, Cape Town, South Africa; in 2018, Santiago, Chile!

Make plans now for our prestigious ethnographic conference, with fabulous cutting edge researchers and practitioners delivering intriguing keynotes; intensive pre-conference workshops with world-renowned qualitative researchers; Special Interest groups; and the chance to replenish your researcher's spirit.

The CEAD welcomes all forms of engagement in ethnographic disciplinary practice, and aims to stimulate rich intellectual discourse. In the ACEAD Constitution, in fact, this goal is made explicit:

"CEAD recognizes that contemporary ethnography has wide-ranging, shifting interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary manifestations and that those who populate such ethnographic endeavours need forums to disseminate their knowledge, collaborate, and garner encouragement and critique from others."

As a Southern Hemisphere conference, CEAD offers a richness of perspective that is slightly counter to the dominant, hegemonic worldview of many ethnographic pieces; for example, informed by a Kaupapa M?ori wordview of “research,” discussions of participant/researcher “ethics” take on a decidedly-richer, more nuanced, view. Broadening our scope to the continent of Africa, we hope that African qualitative researchers will draw upon African indigenous forms of knowledge to enliven, enrich, and inform current dominant, experimental, and emerging forms of the ethnographic project. As always, we expect that researchers and practitioners from across the disciplines of law, anthropology, arts & letters, education, geography, health, management, business, psychology, sociology, cultural, Kaupapa Maori, African Studies, and ethnic and gender studies—and any other discipline where ethnography advances scholarship and public understanding of the way groups and individuals interact and live their lives into being—will seek to share in the rich diversity that this biannual conference and hui provides.

The major theme for the hui in 2016 is Ethnographic Imaginings: Place, Space, and Time and there are four major content streams for exploration (read more about each one here). All abstracts are peer-reviewed, and submitters will be notified of acceptance status in a timely manner. Submit your abstract today.

1. Emerging Methods: Traditional, Experimental and Transgressive Forms
2. Praxis and Advocacy: Doing Ethnography on the Ground
3. Social Justice and Transformation: Theoretical Ethnographic Visions
4. Indigenous Voices: Communicating Peoples

4th Annual International Conference of the Centre for Phenomenology in South Africa

1st Call For Papers: Justice and the Other

24-26 March 2017
Chintsa, South Africa

Main organisers: Abraham Olivier and Rafael Winkler

The contemporary discourse of post-colonialism, which addresses such issues as imperialism, migration, xenophobia, assimilation, hybridity, alterity, subaltern peoples or the status of the refugee, calls for a thinking of the various modalities of exclusion or othering, whether on the basis of gender, race, nationality, culture, religion or species, and also for a way of thinking of the relation with the other that is beyond the law – a relation of justice perhaps, which is bent on redressing the effects of these various modes of exclusion. Who or what is ‘the other’? Does ‘the other’ refer to the inner strangeness of the self that haunts it and that it repudiates by projecting it onto others? Or does it refer to the strangeness of the other, his or her radical alterity? What are the ways in which the other is othered? Is othering always to commit an injustice? How can justice be a concern for the otherness of the other?

Some of these questions, including the question concerning our various relations with the other – legal, ethical, historical or psychological – have been at the forefront of past and current studies in philosophy and in other disciplines such as psychology, cultural studies, and history. In particular, some of them have received special attention in the works of Husserl, Stein, Heidegger, Sartre, de Beauvoir, Merleau-Ponty, Levinas, Lacan, Foucault, Deleuze, Ricoeur, Derrida, Nancy and Fanon.

The aim of this three-day international conference is to explore the many sides and facets of the question of the other, othering and justice in philosophy and related disciplines.

Topics include but are not restricted to:

Othering and exclusion, ethics and justice;

Migration, xenophobia, Afriphobia, Islamophobia, Orientalism, racism, colonialism, sexism, genderism, human trafficking, speciesism, assimilation, appropriation, hybridity, alterity, subaltern peoples, the status of the refugee;

Otherness and the mind-body problem, the problem of other minds;

The self and the other: subjectivity, sympathy, empathy, shame, mourning, friendship;

Justice and the othering of nature;

Methodological otherness: phenomenology and other schools of thought in philosophy; African Philosophy and the limits of Western Philosophy;

Otherness in Plato, Aristotle, Kant, Fichte, Leibniz, Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche, Freud, Benjamin, Husserl, Stein, Heidegger, Jaspers, Scheler, Sartre, de Beauvoir, Merleau-Ponty, Buber, Ricoeur, Levinas, Lévi-Strauss, Althusser, Lacan, Foucault, Derrida, Taylor, Irigaray, Nancy, Rorty, Gramsci, Kristeva, Fanon, Biko, Wiredu, Appiah, Hountondji, Said, Spivak, Singer, Regan;

The problem of other minds in Descartes, Locke, Mill, Wittgenstein, Ryle, Ayer, Kripke, Nagel, Malcolm, Jackson, McGinn, McDowell, Rorty.

Submission:

Please provide a 500 word abstract for blind review and send it to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The full paper should be no more than 3 500 to 4 000 words (the conference format allows for a 35-40 min. presentation followed by a 10-15 minute discussion).

The deadline for submission of abstracts is the 31st of January 2017.

Notification of acceptance will be sent latest by the 20th of February 2017.
