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

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


Early Bird Registration for ASA2018 will begin on June 6th. All convenors, authors, chairs, discussants, organisers, keynotes, plenary speakers, guests, volunteers and committee members who wish to attend the conference must register online in advance of the event.

Registration is by online form only and does not require instant payment. On completing the form your registration will be manually processed, and an invoice will be emailed after a few days, containing payment information.  Payment will be online by credit card using PayPal, or via bank transfer.

The registration fee includes access to all sessions, entrance to the opening reception, a printed conference programme, lunches and tea/coffee in the specified breaks. The conference gala dinner is an extra, to be booked at the time of registration. The dinner will be held on Thursday 20th September in the magnificent Victorian Gothic Dining Hall of Keble College. The dinner will include excellent food and wine and the ticket will cost £60.

Registration rates will be finalised at the end of April, but the Early Bird rates* are likely to be as follows:

Non-member: £315
Member: £270
Student/unemployed/ no income: £170
Student/unemployed/ no income member: £145
Day-rates: £95-£180, depending on category

*N.B. Early-bird rates will cease to be available after July 16th when prices will rise by £60.

Please note: Unfortunately we have just learned that our application to a major anthropological foundation was unsuccessful. We will continue to explore other possibilities, but at the moment -- and with the exception of ASA student awards – it does not look likely that we will be able to offer any financial assistance in order to subsidize attendance at ASA2018. Only UK postgraduate students are eligible for ASA student awards.

One can also book accommodation at one of the following colleges when registering for the conference via our registration form: Exeter College, Lady Margaret Hall, Balliol College. There will be a range of standard and en-suiterooms available, with prices ranging from approximately £60 to £105. Details to follow. Please note that these college rooms are limited in number and will go on a first-come-first-served basis!
