In light of the COVID_19 pandemic, St Andrews and ASA have decided to postpone the conference to Monday 23rd - Thursday 26th August, 2021. In the meantime the selection of papers by panel conveners will commence and those who have submitted papers will be notified of the results of the selection process by 29th May 2020.
Given the extraordinary circumstances, a second round of CFP will be announced in the autumn for those panel conveners who wish to re-open their panels for additional paper proposals.

Anthropology has a long history in St Andrews, dating from the beginning of Andrew Lang's scholarly career in the 1860s and culminating in the founding of an independent department in 1979. Since then, the Department has championed innovative ethnographic and historical scholarship. In 1992, Social Anthropology was incorporated as a Department within the School of Philosophical, Anthropological and Film Studies. The Department is also home to the Centre for Cosmopolitan Studies, the Centre for Amerindian, Latin American and Caribbean Studies, the Centre for Pacific Studies, and the Centre for Minorities Research.
Panels were invited under the following sub-themes:
Who speaks, and for whom?
Health, disease and wellbeing
Morality and legality
Irresponsibility and failure
