IInd Conference of the SIEF Francophone Working Group

This comparative, self-reflexive and critical workshop would like to deepen the analysis of time and temporalities in Europe, an analysis which had already been undertaken in several previous workshops of the Eurethno network. The focus of this workshop, first based of ethnology and cultural anthropology, is also open to the points of view of other disciplines (history, geography, archaeology, art history, sociology, cultural studies, philosophy, religious studies etc.).

Delegates have to secure funding from their institution to pay for their trip to/from Lodz and accommodation (low cost accommodation will be available at the university). The conference fee includes all meals (the coffee break and lunch for the 2 days, and the festive dinner): 80 Euros (60 Euros for unemployed or colleagues coming from non-Euro zone countries).

Deadline for proposals: December 31st 2019.

The programme of the conference will be published in January 2020.

Please address your proposals on a Word document (1 page abstract + name, surname, e-mail address, institution) before December 31st 2019 at laurent.fournier(at) and inga.kuzma(at)
