Thursday July 17, 2008

After making brief presentations of all present Peter Nas opened the agenda for discussions. Some changes were made to the agenda in order to include honorary members and WCAA.

Jing Jun brings an official letter inviting the Union to postpone our Congress to Kunming in July 2009. He further explains the postponement of the 2008 Congress in relation to riots in Tibet. Our Congress was not the only international event that was put on hold, he said, adding that a number of concerts and trade fairs were also postponed. And after the Sichuan Earthquake took place, the decision to postpone the 2008 Congress became final as Yunnan was also one of the areas affected by the earthquake. However, the decision of the Chinese Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences to reopen the Congress in 2009 has been approved by and received support from Chinese authorities. In addition, the preparations for the Congress are still proceeding. By now, Jing Jun said, the film festival during the Congress has received enough submissions. Rooms for students are booked. All the chairpersons of the Commissions, distinguished speakers and other participants had been invited. The resources to pay for these activities are still available. Jing Jun’s speech at the Executive Committee contained a formal apology to IUAES for the postponement of the 2008 Congress.

The possibilities are to postpone the Congress to December 2008 or July 2009, and there are arguments for and against both times. What is the biggest concern is that the Congress should no be postponed again, since this would hurt the Union deeply. There are arguments for holding the meeting at any of both times, and it is proposed that it is decided by the Chinese Organizing Committee taking into account arguments for both sides.

Jing Jun suggests that Peter Nas should travel to China to receive a commitment from the Chinese Government that the Congress will not be postponed again, and Mugsy Spiegel adds that this should include aspects in addition to the ones related to politics, such as floods, etc., plus allowing for academic discussions of delicate issues.

Tomoko Hamada suggests that this has to be made known to the anthropological community. Many people are scrutinizing our Union and institutions and we have to be very careful to demonstrate that we have been very careful in obtaining assurance that the conditions to hold the Congress have been acceptable.

Faye Harrison suggests that we also consider the possibility of changing the site of the Congress from Kunming to Hong Kong.

Decision 1: The Executive Committee unanimously agrees that we are in favor of holding the XVI IUAES Congress in Kunming, China preferably in July 2009. The Executive Committee will reach the final decision by email vote, after a visit to China led by the Secretary General who will obtain written assurances from the Chinese Government, that there will be no further postponements or cancellation. Freedom of speech and participation as well as provision of visas for all participants must be guaranteed.

The vote was unanimously in favor. Mugsy Spiegel states that we should have alternatives if the answer is negative.


Decision 2: It is agreed that in that case the Congress should be cancelled. We have a proposal for a next Congress in Manchester for 2013, which can be anticipated, but there is also the possibility of holding a meeting of the Executive Committee in Cameroon, during the Inter-congress in August 2009.

The Committee received a proposal to prepare a Statement on Human Rights by IUAES. B. Chaudhury is preparing a draft, to be sent to us. Petr Skalnik is also preparing an expansion of the Statement on Human Race with the results of the discussion held in the Pardubice Inter-congress. This opened the question on how to facilitate the Executive Committee to make statements about concrete matters, which are urgent.


Decision 3: The Statement on Human Rights will be done by a committee made up of Mugsy Spiegel, B. Chaudhury, Soheila Shahshahani and Hao Shiyuan, from the Institute of Ethnology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. This will be presented by our Committee to the Permanent Council in China and then made public.


Decision 4: Petr Skalnik consulting other members who have already made contributions will prepare a similar situation for the Statement on Human Race.


Decision 5: The Executive Committee voted for Soheila Shahshahani to become our Senior Vice-president.


Peter Nas informs about the Congresses and Inter-congresses that have been proposed:

These (Inter-)congresses will be presented at the coming Congress to the Permanent Council. Peter Nas will inform the organizers about the bidding procedure.

Peter Nas announced that the book Anthropology now: Essays by the Scientific Commissions of IUAES and history of IUAES is ready. Only three Commissions did not participate. This book is programmed to be published in China, both in English and Chinese.

Soheila Shahshahani proposes changes in our by-laws. One problem is that the Commissions do not have a clear procedure on how to change their authorities. One probability is to have a small advisory council. Our Union should promote inter-commission meetings. Attention should also be given to the financial situations of the Commissions and their contribution to IUAES.

Commissions have the possibility of obtaining funds from foundations and other sources to support their activities. They are also to be encouraged to have their own websites with links to the one of IUAES.

Friday July 18, 2008

(We made further amendments to the resolution concerning the XVI IUAES Congress and unanimously voted for them.)

Tomoko Hamada presented the IUAES Financial Report from January 1, 2008 to July 7, 2008. One problem that we have faced is the changing rate of exchange of euros in relation to dollars. Payments have been made to ICSU, CIPSH and ISSC, and in addition we have had other expenses. Our current balance is of $779.48 USA dollars. Not all Commissions have paid their fees.


Decision 6: Tomoko Hamada proposes to create the possibility of offering life memberships. This is accepted.

Jin Jung explained that the organizers of the Congress in China cannot collect the membership fees for IUAES.

We discussed the financial crisis facing IUAES, since institutions are not paying and we have to relay on individual fees that are hard to collect.


Decision 7: It has been agreed that a Task Force for Finances and Fund Raising must be established: Jungi Koizumi, Faye Harrison, Charles Susanne and Tomoko Hamada.

Keichii Omoto suggests that formal invitations should be sent to Anthropological Associations inviting them to become members.

We reviewed the list of Honorary Members and found that four members have passed away, and we have no information about three of them.


Decision 8: Mugsy Spiegel will try to find about the ones from which we have no information.

Soheila Shahshahani presented the results of the Nominations Committee and links them with the need to have a clear view of the functions and the future of IUAES.


Decision 9: We decided by voting that we will have two candidates for Secretary General and two for President. (Comment Peter Nas: this is not in accordance with the statutes. As the Executive Committee cannot change the statutes - which has to be done via the Permanent Council - this vote should be considered merely an advice to the Nominating Committee.)

For all the candidates for every post, the Nominations Committee will provide the Secretary General with a brief curriculum vitae and a statement of their plans within IUAES. This information can be given to the members of the Permanent Council present at its meeting.

Jing Jun lets us know that he just got news from China asking that the Congress be programmed for Kunming during five days in July.

Peter Nas reminds us that IUAES is a member of ICSU, ISSC, CIPSH and ECOSOC. We have been participating in them and obtained funding for specific projects. At the moment we are not a member of the WCAA network. Mugsy Spiegel presented the results of the WCAA meeting recently held in Osaka. Our Union has to decide our relationship with WCAA.


Decision 10: Mugsy Spiegel and Luis Alberto Vargas will prepare material to be discussed in Kunming about our relationship.

2. 'Observation Delegation' to China

By Soheila Shahshahani, Senior Vice-President of the IUAES

In September 2008, I received a short message from Professor Peter Nas asking me if I would accompany him and Professor Sunderland to be a member of what the Chinese host of the ICAES called the ‘Observation Delegation’. I freed myself from academic engagements for the week of 13-19th of October. I thought I could help achieve the goals set in Leiden for a delegation to make sure there would not be any further postponements or cancellations, that freedom of speech and visas for all participants would be guaranteed.

To begin with, getting a visa from the Chinese Consulate in Tehran was a difficult matter, and I made a note of all the difficulties to make it clear to our Chinese colleagues what has to be done to facilitate this matter for all participants in 2009.

Arriving in Beijing I was greeted at the airport by Professor Zhang Haiwang already a friend, having participated in at least three conferences with him (twice in Beijing, once in Tehran). In the morning of October 15th we had our first meeting with Chinese high officials and our colleagues Zhang Jijiao, Jing Jun and many others were present. After a long welcome which included expressions of regret and understanding, we decided that a memorandum must be quickly drawn up so that both sides could sign it before our departure. We set out to work to spell out clearly what had to be in the Memorandum. On the Chinese side the same effort was made, and the Memorandum was corrected and exchanged a few times till the last version was accepted by both parties and finally signed before our departure on the 18th of October, around 18:00 o’clock.

What we had to do during this period was to visit the venues of the Congress to make sure that what was done was acceptable. Accompanied by some colleagues we arrived in Kunming at night. The entire day of the 16th was passed at Yunnan University and Yunnan University for Nationalities. We were first received by the President He Tianchun and then the Vice-President Mrs. Wang Zi gave a full report of her achievements. We were very positively surprised by the achievements of both Universities in preparing for the Congress. Twelve working groups (Organizing Office, Finance Group, Venue Group, Exhibition Group, Academic Group, Publicity Group, Volunteer Group, Accommodation Group, Catering and Campus Environmental Group, Security Group, Literature and Art Group, and Multi-Service Group including medical assistance, internet services, postal and photocopy services, supermarket, barrier-free facilities for the disabled, the security police etc.) were formed. Since 2007 the Yunnan University Newspaper opened a column called ‘Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences’ to promote the IUAES world congress.

A few buildings and auditoriums will be at our disposition (The Wen-Yuan Building, Qing Lai Hall, Science Building, Zhi Gong Tang, Justice Hall). A few auditoriums were completely refurnished, air conditions placed, and more than a hundred classrooms repainted, with new equipment with multi-media facilities. The Library will have a Book Fair, Anthropology Museum will have a few exhibitions and there will be Sign Boards in English within the campus.

Three locations will be at our disposal, all in the same area: Yunnan University, Yunnan University for Nationalities and the Museum. We were welcomed by officials, anthropologists, curators of the Museum, two volunteers standing at each door when we entered to bow harmonically to welcome us, and an electronic bill board announcing the arrival of ‘Observation Delegates’.

The Yunnan University of Nationalities will have three floors for books, posters and arts and crafts exhibitions. Six hundred volunteers will be interviewed, and five hundred will be selected to help participants. Translations being a critical matter we did emphasize on the quality of translations. Two cafeteria spaces will be at our disposition, and other facilities will also be provided to have the necessary food and refreshments for the grand number of people who will be attending the Congress. The campus hospital will also be renovated for all emergencies.

In between the Buildings, I mentioned above, there were gardens with low stone tables and stools inviting for informal discussions. I am sure many friends will be happy to find each other and speak quietly in the shade. Kunming has apparently always spring weather.

Free of charge, participants could use urban transportation during the days of the Congress. What would still be extremely important is the possibility on all five days to go to Yi villages. We visited one of them, called Koyi, and the fire sacrifice was performed for us, and very joyful male and female dancing followed, and we highly recommend this visit. This village was studied by an anthropologist who had helped in making it a location for research, and had also prepared it as a tourist attraction site.

Back to Beijing we visited Professor Zhang Jijiao at his office at the Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology, at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, and there, we were again surprised at the number of volumes he had prepared for the Congress. At the end of any activity, we were asked what we thought and how we thought they could improve for the Congress. We always had points to offer which were noted. Thus it seems that after all it might have become an unwanted luck that we are going to hold the Congress in 2009.


Beijing, 18 October 2008: Ceremonial photograph after the signing of the Memorandum on the postponed IUAES World Congress in Kunming.

Really, as the accomplishment of this country, what they had done in preparation was astounding. IUAES has been instrumental for support of anthropology in many countries and Chinese anthropologists recognize this fact and would only be glad to host us in a more elaborate way than they did in the Inter-Congress of 2000 in Beijing, and I am personally sure we will have a memorable Congress.

Professor Sunderland with his expertise and good humour, emphasized that I should not mention anything about all he did to make this delegation a successful one, but to say, ‘He was helpful’. Peter was affirmative, at one occasion vehemently so to get the ‘key sentence’ into the Memorandum. It was essential that we be harmonious and to work within our mandate, and indeed we did.

3. Proposals for Changes in the IUAES Statutes

Some IUAES members have proposed changes in the organization and statutes of the IUAES. These have been published in Newsletter 70, page 1, and will be discussed by the Executive Committee before being proposed to the Permanent Council. The following additional proposals are from Mugsy Spiegel:

1. Bringing the statutes and by-laws up to date with current circumstances.

2. Ensuring that all officers of the IUAES (including the President and Secretary General, but excluding the Treasurer) are nominated and elected through an open and transparent process and for specified periods of time rather than on an open-ended basis.

3. Ensuring that the Secretary General and President remain accountable to the Executive Committee and that they report to that Committee regularly.

4. Ensuring that the Executive Committee meets regularly (if necessary electronically) and that Executive Committee members continue to be active participants in the affairs of the Union.

5. Ensuring that there is scope to replace inactive members of the Executive Committee so that there can be continuity in its work.

6. Ensuring that there is proper and adequate world-wide representation on the Permanent Council while reconsidering the idea that the basis of such representation should be the nation-state.

4. IUAES Archive at the Section Special Collections of Leiden University Library

By Marlies de Groot

Since September 2008 the archive of the secretary-general of the International Union of the Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences (IUAES), (1948)1998-2008 is included in the Leiden University Library, Section Special Collections. Here follows the inventory.


Introduction

Organization

The IUAES is a world organization of social and biological anthropological scientists and institutions working in the fields of anthropology and ethnology, but also of interest to archaeologists and linguistics specialists, among others. Its aim is to enhance exchange and communication among scholars of all regions of the world, in a collective effort to expand human knowledge. In this way it hopes to contribute to a better understanding of human society, and to a sustainable future based on harmony between nature and culture.

Through its International Congresses of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences (ICAES), held every five years, it provides a world forum for the discussion and dissemination of research in these fields. It also holds Inter-Congresses, seminars and symposia, and encourages the participation of anthropologists in other international meetings and projects. Through its Commissions, the IUAES stimulates the convergence of research interests among anthropologists, and the dissemination of research findings through publications.

The IUAES was established on 23rd August, 1948, when it was brought into one organization, de facto, with the International Congress of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences (ICAES), which was itself founded in 1934. The latter was the follower of various Congresses of Anthropological Sciences, starting in 1865, the President of the Congress also serving as the President of the Union. The two organizations were united, de jure, into one, in 1968.

The Congresses held from 1934 onwards were as follows: 1934 London; 1938 Copenhagen; 1948 Brussels; 1952 Vienna; 1956 Philadelphia; 1960 Paris; 1964 Moscow; 1968 Tokyo; 1973 Chicago; 1978 Delhi; 1983 Quebec and Vancouver; 1988 Zagreb; 1993 Mexico; 1998 Williamsburg; and 2003 Florence. Recent Inter-Congresses took place in Calcutta/Ranchi, India, 2004; Pardubice, Czech Republic, 2005; and Cape Town, South Africa 2006.

The XVIth World Congress was planned to be in Kunming, China, 2008, under the Presidency of Professor Jing Jun, but was postponed.

The organization consists of a system with three bodies, the Executive Committee, the Permanent Council and the General Assembly. Besides this it also offers scientific commissions (currently 27) which each specialize in a certain direction. It has links with ECOSOC, CISPH, ISSC and ICSU.

See for an extended history inventory number 18.5.


Archive

This archive was formed by Peter J.M. Nas in his function as secretary-general of the International Union of the Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences (IUAES). He was in office from 1998 till 2008/2009. The archive was donated to the Leiden University Library and is kept there by the Special Collections department. It consists of various pieces ranging from documentation published by the various branches of the IUAES to correspondence, as the secretary-general is on the whole the spokesperson for the organization. A short history and explanation to the IUAES is written above, for an extended history, see number 18.5.

This archive also includes some files of the previous secretary-general Eric Sunderland as well as papers of Henry Claessen, the chairman of the nomination committee (1998).

Cyril Belshaw (President 1978-1983) has deposited his archive including information such as extensive correspondence, the complete bank records of the Vancouver account of the Union, commission matters and more under the classification Cyril Belshaw Fonds in the university archives division of the library of the University of British Columbia.
