CHAGS conferences generate intellectual exchange, advance knowledge of the lives and times of hunter-gatherers in the past, present, and future, and have made significant contributions to anthropological theory.


CHAGS X (Liverpool, 2013) and CHAGS XI (Vienna, 2015) attracted unprecedented numbers of first-timers and students interested in hunter-gatherer societies and the dynamics and conditions of their lives, and offered the promise of new disciplinary crossways, concerns, and approaches.


The objective of CHAGS XII is to push this momentum forward and to expand the social spaces of knowledge sharing and production. We aim to cultivate not just diversity in concept-building but good practices of working with and relating to hunter-gatherers.


As with previous conferences, the scope of CHAGS XII is broadly global and its perspective is towards the long-term. We welcome proposals for sessions that seek ways to go beyond geographical and disciplinary specialisms, and that promote new pathways of knowledge production. We invite participants to reflect on “situations, times, and places” whether integratively (as a springboard for general theoretical reflections on their interconnections) or separately (as discrete themes and topics), and to examine the intersections of time and place with fieldwork and theorising across the many concerns of hunter-gatherer research. This last will include the time-space compressions of the digital age, which are changing everyday experiences everywhere.
