26th October 2017

A specialist seminar bringing together scholarship on contemporary hunting in the European region including scholars working in Germany, England, France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Sweden, Malta and Cyprus. The first objective of this seminar is to establish what expertise as a group of scholars we already hold, as well as where we are lacking. Whilst Europe is a socially and ecologically vast and diverse region, this seminar's second objective is to identify what the (5) most common topics are that characterise hunting across scholars' different field sites. Professor Garry Marvin will be assisting in this objective, drawing on his experience in the subject. The third objective is to identify the (3) most poignant ways in which scholarship of hunting in Europe addresses people, places and subjects beyond the scholars of it.

The seminar will be held at the School of Anthropology and Conservation in the Stirling Library on the 18th and 19th November.

Please contact Avi Heinemann if you wish to attend. Co-organised by the Anthropology of Hunting and Conservation Network and Kent Interdisciplinary Centre for Spatial Studies (KISS). Supported by the Royal Anthropological Institute and Kent Graduate School.
