COMING OUT OF THE IVORY TOWER
This international symposium attempts to erase the boundary between “pure” and “applied”anthropology, and presents opportunities for establishing long-lasting cooperation between academics and practitioners. Contemporary demands give us no time to get stuck by internal tensions and divisions within the discipline
– anthropologists need to come out of their “ivory towers” and come to terms with the increasingly prominent economic, political and ecological challenges of our world.
