Second City Anthropology Conference
Culture in Motion: Anthropological Perspectives on Movement, Interaction, and Exchange
March 5, 2016, Student Center East
What do we talk about when we talk about culture? There are many ways to define this evermore complex concept: A system of meanings and symbols, an exosomatic means of adaptation, a suite of learned behaviors, a system of institutions -- both material and ideal -- and the relationships that intertwine them. But whatever a culture’s primary features are, they are not in stasis or isolation. Culture is emergent and continually evolving at the intersections of individuals and communities -- where knowledge and practice are created, exchanged, and challenged.
“Innovation is rearrangement of existing forms. There must be differences among the forms which are brought together, and there must also be a way of bringing them together.” - Joseph R. Caldwell.
Attendance and participation in the conference are free and open to all students and other members of the UIC community.
