European Anthropology Days in Greece | 2024

The Association of Social Anthropologists of Greece (SKAE / ASAG) celebrates European Anthropology Days from the 15th of February up to the 20th of March under the rhetorical question “Is Anthropology present?“. Anthropology, in its polyphonic, open and critical approach, can contribute decisively to highlighting social problems, mitigating their causes and amplifying the voices of those affected. Anthropology enables new paths of understanding and can inform new policies and alternatives, evidence-based practices and shared visions.

Our celebrations include four movie screenings, four workshops, two performances, one exhibition and an online event held in English (link to access provided below) as well as six dedicated blog posts on ΣΚΑΕ/ASAG’s website. We are collaborating with the Ethnographic Film Festival in Athens, Fiji, Anthropology-inspired Storytelling network in Volos, Panteion University of Social and Political Sciences (Athens), the University of Thessaly (Volos), the University of Macedonia (Thessaloniki), the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, the University of Aegean, four K-12 schools in Piraeus, Korydallos, Athens and the island of Amorgos, and a cinema club based on Amorgos. Our planned activities are outlined below.
