Cultural/Social Anthropology Research Seminar

ILCAA offers this seminar as a training activity for young anthropologists in the Core Project (Anthropology).

Since 2011, this seminar has been held for doctoral students and young researchers specializing in cultural/social/ecological anthropology in order to provide them opportunities for paper presentations and academic arguments for the elaboration of their drafts of presentations into their doctoral theses and/or manuscripts. It has been cosponsored by ILCAA and the Japanese Society of Cultural Anthropology (Next-Generation Raising Seminar) since 2015. Each presenter is accompanied with a commentator suitable for his/her presentation content, who provides comments and information on the latest academic arguments equivalent to peer review. In addition, the seminar aims at providing the participants opportunities to extend their knowledge through listening to presentations of other young researchers in the same generation and exchanging opinions with each other from various viewpoints. We expect that this seminar will promote interaction between researchers crossing the boundaries of where they belong and lead to activation of research activities of young researchers.
