2019 Vega Symposium on Anthropological Journeys
Most Welcome to the 2019 Vega Symposium on Wednesday 24 April, 13.30–17.00, Beijersalen, Kungliga Vetenskapsakademien, Stockholm
Witnessing Anthropological Journeys, and the Returns
The 2019 Vega Symposium honours Professor Emily Martin, Professor of Anthropology at New York University, recipient of SSAG’s Medal in Gold 2019, for her profound contributions to anthropological thought and research. The theme of the symposium will focus on anthropological journeys, and the returns. Honoring complex cross-cultural differences in ethical codes about reciprocity, anthropologists have returned books and articles, analytic grammars and dictionaries, and material support. What does the reciprocal relationship between ethnographers and their interlocutors tell us about the kind of knowledge ethnography can produce? Similar questions are now being raised about the proper fate of ethnographic treasures that are housed in American or European museums and libraries. Should such collections of cultural heritage be returned to their communities of origin?

SSAG's Medal in Gold to Emily Martin
SSAG has decided to award Professor Emily Martin, New York University, USA, for her contributions to anthropology in a long row of influential books and articles. Her most classic book is about medicine and American culture, titled The Woman in the Body: a Cultural Analysis of Reproduction (1987). This book reads science with an eye for the cultural values that it reproduces and reinforces, even as it disavows and denies that it is a cultural product at all. Professor Martin's approach combines feminist analyses with an ethnography of science and medicine and was highly innovative and original. It moreover founded a productive and constructive way to contrast the views of medical science with those of real people from diverse social and economic backgrounds.
Professor Martin’s production of classic works has continued and also influenced feminist and gender studies outside the discipline of anthropology. She is still publishing major works that challenges new generations of young anthropologists.
On 24 April 2019 Professor Martin will receive SSAG's Medal in Gold by the King of Sweden. On the same day the 2019 the Vega Symposium is focusing on Professor Martin's research. SAVE THE DATE! ... See MoreSee Less
