The 17th World Congress of the International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences has the overall theme “Evolving Humanity, Emerging Worlds.”
The congress will be hosted by the University of Manchester with the support of Manchester City Council. This is the first world congress to be held in Britain since the initial meeting of the International Congress of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences in London in 1934. The Congress Agenda is being planned by a UK Organizing Committee which includes anthropologists working in all sub-fields of the discipline. The conference program is available online.
