Paper long abstract:

We are looking forward to discuss these and related questions, share our experiences from the practice of applied and engaged anthropology, and exchange ideas about how novel future engagements could emerge: o How can we differentiate between public, applied and engaged anthropology? o What are the benefits, and what are the dangers of public visibility and engagement for researchers? o How can we make use of the technological innovations that have changed the relation between researchers and audiences, and where are the dangers of these technologies?
