European Association of Social Anthropologists (EASA)

Région concernée : Asie centrale

EASA is a professional association open to all social anthropologists either qualified in, or else working in, Europe. It is a society of scholarship, founded on January 14th, 1989 at the "Inaugural General Assembly" in Castelgandolfo/Italy of twenty-one founder members from thirteen European countries and one from the US, supported by the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research. This meeting drafted the Constitution and elected the Association's first Executive Committee (1989-90), chaired by Prof. Adam Kuper, Brunel University.

The Association seeks to advance anthropology in Europe by organizing biennial conferences, by editing its academic journal Social Anthropology/Anthropologie Sociale, its Newsletter and the two publication series. The Association further encourages and supports thematic networks.

EASA is a self-governing democratic body. No member may be elected to office more than twice in succession; the only exception are up to two members co-opted by the elected Executive so as to ensure the continuity of EASA's administrative and publishing functions. The composition of the successive Executive Committees shows the pan-European character of EASA.

A network about Asia exists in the association: Anthropology of the Middle East and Central Eurasia (Russia, the Caucasus, Central Asia, China) (AMCE)

European Society for Central Asian Studies (ESCAS)

Région concernée : Asie centrale

In 1985 a group of scholars from the Netherlands, Germany, France, Great Britain, and Denmark, working within Central Asian Studies decided to establish informal cooperation with the purpose of promoting joint research and interdisciplinary studies among European scholars on Central Asia. The Department of Oriental Languages and Cultures of the University of Utrecht took the initiative to organise the first and founding conference of ESCAS, inviting also scholars from Central Asia.

The immediate purpose of the conference was to define the geographic area of Central Asia which would be dealt with. It was agreed to include the Soviet republics of Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan as well as adjacent areas of Mongolia, Northern Iran, Northern Afghanistan and Northwestern China. A primary reason for establishing ESCAS was to give Central Asian Studies the status of a separate research field in its own right, independent of Soviet and Eastern European studies, to establish research links with disciplines working within the same historical and cultural continuum in adjacent areas, and to create opportunities for direct cooperation between scholars of the former Soviet Central Asia and scholars in adjacent areas.

Société Européenne pour l'Etude des Civilisations de l'Himalaya et de l'Asie Centrale (SEECHAC)

Région concernée : Asie centrale

SEECHAC's aim is to make better known the civilisations, arts and religions of the Himalayan and Centralasian countries. Its ambition is to establish ties between scholars from different countries by organising meetings, exchanges of informations, international conferences etc. At Paris, it acts so to spread the diffusion of the most recent results of research by organising high level lectures, nonetheless comprehensible to a large audience, open to every member of the Society. Alongside with its scientific activity (professional meetings, colloquiums, etc) the SEECHAC organises in Paris high level lectures open to all its members, given by specialists, both French and from other countries. Generally they take place at Musée Cernuschi.
