VANDA is an international conference, taking place in the beautiful capital of Austria. It aims to bring together scholars from various fields of anthropology, social sciences and humanities. 

VANDA is meant to be more than a mainstream conference. It includes an interactive Young Scholars’ Forum, where graduate students can network, receive mentoring and practical advice from experienced researchers.

VANDA is a green, socially inclusive conference and offers a unique social activity program. It is hosted by the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology of the University of Vienna.

The keynote speaker will be Thomas Hylland Eriksen, University of Oslo. The call for sessions will start on January 1, 2022.
