Anthropology and Conservation

Call for papers now open!

We are very pleased to announce the call for papers for a major interdisciplinary conference on Anthropology and Conservation. The aim of the conference is simple: it is increasingly recognised that conservation can only be properly achieved with Indigenous Peoples, in full recognition of their rights. It is therefore urgent that we develop cross-disciplinary understanding not just of conservation, but also of the way that conservation and people go together. The conference will be held virtually. The conference was originally proposed by the University of East Anglia’s School of International Development, and we are pleased to welcome as co-organisers alongside UEA: Forest Peoples Programme, the Linnean Society, Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, the University of Kent’s School of Anthropology and Conservation, the Anthropology and Environment Society (a section of the AAA), Botanic Garden Conservation International, the Society of Ethnobiology and Cambridge Conservation Initiative.

The Anthropology and Conservation conference will be held 25 to 29 October 2021 online.

Please visit the conference website ( to browse the full list of panels and decide where to propose your paper. All proposals must be made via the online form that can be found on each panel page.
