To all future members and friends of the Association for Southeast European Anthropology (InASEA) Invitation and Call for Papers Dear colleagues, on December 10 - 12, 1999, an initiative group consisting of Milena Benovska, Glenn Bowman, Christian Giordano, Deema Kaneff, Karl Kaser, Vintila Mihailescu, Karin Norman, and Klaus Roth convened in Bucharest and founded the International Association for Southeast European Anthropology (InASEA). It succeeds the Association for Balkan Anthropology (ABA). The founding committee kindly invites you to participate in the first general assembly and conference of InASEA in Sofia and to present a paper. The broad topic of the conference is The Anthropology of Southeast Europe - Ten Years After. Socio-Cultural Aspects of Transformation The conference will be held on Sept. 14-17, 2000, at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences in Sofia. The organs of the association will be elected at the general assembly of members. The language of the general assembly of members will be English, while the languages of the conference are English, French, and German. The conference shall focus (1) on the cultural changes themselves and (2) on the disciplines studying them. It will therefore discuss the following general topics: -the study of the socio-cultural consequences of the transformation processes in SEE, particularly the transformation of (socialist) everyday culture, -phenomena of contemporary (post-socialist) everyday culture and popular culture, etc. -the change of paradigm in the study of ethnicity and ethnic groups, as well as -the status and the role of the cultural sciences (ethnology, cultural and social anthropology, folklore, ethnography, historical anthropology) in Southeast Europe, -the process of transformation (in subject matter, methods, theories, approaches) which these disciplines are undergoing in research and teaching in order to overcome the legacy of the past and to develop into a modern ethnology and/or social anthropology. The Suedosteuropa-Gesellschaft has granted financial support; further applications for funds are pending. Accommodation and travel expenses (train, bus) of participants from AL, BiH, BG, HR, MK, RO and YU can probably be paid for.
