Epic

Ethnographic Praxis in Industry Conference (EPIC)
November 14-15, 2005
Microsoft Corporation, Redmond, WA

"The EPIC is a new conference at the juncture between ethnographic praxis and corporate research. EPIC presentations span a broad range of work from critical theory and application papers, to interactive demonstrations, videos, installations, posters and workshops. Beyond this, the conference aspires to promote the integration of anthropological perspectives, methods and theory into business practices; to advocate business decisions based upon sound research; to promote public recognition of practicing ethnography as a profession; and to support the continuing professionalization of the field. This announcement is for an early call for papers and workshop proposals within the scope of Sociality."

Papers, Abstracts Submission Deadline June 17, 2005

Thanks Chad

Update 01/06/05

Carl points me to this job opening in Redmond for a cultural anthropologist. Now if I could just stop laughing at the fact that they want a candidate who possesses "Stage Presence"... My best case scenario interpretation of this requirement is "No socially retarded academics need apply" but I fear worse.
