GfA Meeting 2019: Abstract Submission Deadline extended

The deadline for abstract submissions for the 13th meeting of the Society for Anthropology (Gesellschaft für Anthropologie, GfA) in Göttingen (Germany) has been extended to 07 July 2019. Originally, abstract submission closed on 16 June.

The society stresses that contributions to all aspects of anthropology are welcome, not just for the guiding theme „Health and Wellbeing“. The deadline extension intends to ensure that contributions are not held back because of related misunderstandings. As with previous meetings, some special sessions will be dedicated to the guiding theme while most of the programme will accommodate contributions on other areas of research.

The GfA, therefore, renews its call for papers. An updated version of the document, containing the extended deadline, is now available through the meeting website. Submissions can still be made through the abstract submission page.
