We welcome you to join us for the 2018 Joint Conference of the Society of Ethnobiology and Society of Economic Botany. The conference will take place from June 3 – 7, 2018, in Madison, Wisconsin, with most conference events held in Memorial Union at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The theme of 2018’s conference is Food Security, Sovereignty, & Traditional Knowledge.
Our joint conference provides a wonderful opportunity to meet colleagues in your field, connect with potential research partners, and develop greater cross-cultural, cross-discipline knowledge and awareness. Conference presenters and attendees come from a variety of fields and backgrounds, including academic faculty and students, Native/Indigenous community members, government personnel, museum staff, and individuals from private consulting and nonprofit agencies.
This year’s conference will include multiple days of oral presentations, breakout sessions, active/applied demonstrations, and cultural field trips. The conference will culminate in a joint banquet on Wednesday evening, and will include awards and talks from this year’s Distinguished Ethnobiologist and Distinguished Economic Botanist.
We look forward to seeing you in Madison this June!
