We are very pleased to announce the call for panel proposals for the third Nepal Anthropology Conference 2017. This year, it will be organized by the Anthropological Association of Nepal (AAN) with support from the Central Department of Anthropology at Tribhuvan University. AAN welcomes proposals from any of the sub-fields of anthropology, and those which draw across social science and other disciplines. The theme for the third annual anthropology conference has been chosen as "Inclusive Pathways to Society. Governance and Resilience." Hence, proposals relating the theme are particularly welcome, especially papers that reconsider the relationship between inclusion. governance and resilience with anthropology today and in the past. This, however. is not meant to restrict any potential suggestions and papers are welcome on any aspect of the theme, whether theoretical or ethnographic. 

Annual Conference 2017 will also honor the distinctive contributions that have been made by Professor David Holmberg and Professor Kathryn March to scholarship and teaching on Nepal and the Himalaya. as well as to the significant contribution they have made in promoting the field of anthropology itself in Nepal during last four decades. There will be 2-3 panels with papers presented under the broad themes on the study of Nepali/Himalayan Culture and Society in their honor at the conference. Papers and Panels 

Proposals are invited for stand-alone papers or three-paper panels. Interested persons are requested to send their abstract of 200 words along with their 2-page CV. The final paper with words not exceeding 5,000 words needs to be submitted before the conference.

For the panel proposal, individual and institutions can propose three paper panels on a particular theme including the proposal for chair. Panel proposal should have 500 words abstracts of all papers as well as panel abstract. The CVs of presenters and chair should also be included.
