Urgent Invitation

I am very pleased to invite you to participate to an "individual session" which will be taking place to the IUASE INTER-CONGRESS in Tokyo, September 2002.

I have proposed an individual session called "Body-Soul-Spirit. An Anthropological Interdisciplinary Approach", which was accepted by the Congress Council.

I will be honored and very glad if you would come to make public your own researches in my session.

If you decide to participate and to send an abstract of your scientific paper to the General Secretary of the Congress, please let me know! (but NO LATER THAN MARCH, 31, 2002)

The ORIGINAL abstract form of the paper AND its THREE COPIES should be mailed to:

Prof. EISAKU KANAZAWA, Secretary General, Inter-Congress of IUAES 2002, Department of Anatomy, Nihon University School of Dentistry at Matsudo, 2-870-1 Sakaecho-Nishi, Matsudo-shi, Chiba 271-8587, Japan.

The 2002 IUAES inter-congress (=the International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences) will be held in Tokyo over six days, from September 22 to September 27, 2002. The Science Council of Japan, the Anthropological Society of Japan and the Japanese Society of Ethnology will host the meeting.

Now, at the beginning of the 21th century, our understanding of the human being is to be changed due to the world-wide social and political transformations and the accelerated progress of the information technology. The framework of natural sciences has been rebuilt because of the environmental problems and due to the development of life and sciences. The anthropologists and ethnologists are required to re-examine the research methodologies and to revise the classic racial views. "What is anthropology/ethnology in the 21th century?" "What can anthropologists and ethnologists do in the new era?" We hope to find a way to answer these questions at the congress.

The theme of the 2002 IUAES inter-congress in Tokyo is "The Human Body in Anthropological Perspectives".
