ASA18: Sociality, matter, and the imagination: re-creating Anthropology

18-21 September 2018, Examination Schools, University of Oxford

Book exhibit

The ASA annual conference will take place in the magnificient Examination Schools in central Oxford, now attracting over 700 delegates. It will be a joint ‘pan-anthropology’ conference, as the Committee is taking forward efforts to forge closer collaborative links with other Anthropology/related organisations in the UK, with a view to (a) composing more strategic and effective liaison between our disciplinary areas and key policy and decision makers and (b) enabling a fuller exchange of ideas with our sister disciplines. Read more about the UKAN initiative and the list of possible organisations. The exhibits will be in the centre of the action in the same space as the catering, guaranteeing a steady footfall throughout the conference.

Publishers and other exhibitors can choose one or more of the following options:

Participation with single display table (~1.8m x 0.8m) - full access for one staff member to panels & events and a single display table. Registration fee - £430

Participation with double display table (~3.6m x 0.8m) - full access to panels & events for two staff members and a double display table. Registration fee - £640

Full page portrait advert in abstract book.
Please email a 300dpi, black & white TIF, 210mm (h) x 148mm (w) with 3mm bleed to conference(at) by July 17th 2018 with subject line “Publisher ad in conference programme”. Charge - £240

How to book

To register for the conference including some exhibition space at ASA18, please email conference(at) and specify the type of participation required (number of staff and display tables required); we shall then contact you with instructions on how your staff members attending the event should register in our system. If interested, you can also book tickets for your staff to attend the conference dinner.

Please note:

we do NOT offer unstaffed displays - experience shows that you do not get to really market your company and simply lose your stock. We would have to pay a student to mind your stand, so the cost would rise, and while very able, students are not trained in marketing and are not grounded in your company profile. Come along and meet your client base!

we do NOT offer insertion of ads/catalogues in delegate packs - experience shows that the clutter in a delegate bag is quickly junked, and rarely placed into a recycling bin. Ads printed in our conference book will not be thrown away, and so will have a longer shelf-life. This will also have environmental benefits.
