The Ahi Evran University dept. of anthropology has announced that the 2010 IUAES Inter-Congress will be held in Antalya, Turkey, October 3-6, 2010, with the theme: “From the Crossroads of Civilizations: Understanding Cultural Diversity to Connect Societies.” The organizers note:
We believe that the physical and metaphorical bridge that Turkey embodies creates an optimum perspective from which to approach, investigate, and share with one another methods for exploring key anthropological subjects: cultural diversity, multiculturalism, migration, transnationalism, the other, belonging, and religion, politics, ethnicity, culture, and gender.
