Who are MASN?

MASN - the Moving Anthropology Student Network - was founded in 2005 to promote communication, networking and interaction among students of social and cultural anthropology, and has since become the largest international exchange platform of its kind.

Alongside virtual communication via the world wide web, several moving conferences in different European countries (Austria 2005, Croatia 2006, Poland and Germany in 2007, Italy in spring 2008, Slovenia in summer 2008, and Poland in spring 2010 ) have brought us together in actual life.

This summer's conference in Maynooth, Ireland will be the 8th Moving Anthropology Student Network conference.

Over 1650 anthropologists and anthropology students from more than 80 different countries have already become members of the MASN community!

We are: Deirdre Carolan, Shannon Damery, Amélie Hérault, Thomas Keegan, Anthony Kelly, Mike Kelly, Thérèse Lyons, Rebekah McCabe, Helen McCarthy, Alex O'Connell, Will Peat, Tamryn Reinecke, Katja Seidel, Tara Taheny and Sarah Walsh.
