Students in the anthropology department at the Graduate Center, CUNY  
invite you to attend our upcoming conference: In Times of Need?

Papers explore "need" as it is manifested in many different contexts  
-- in the framing of humanitarian goals and political projects, in  
discourses of the self and self-betterment, romantic relationships,  
and spirituality, and in the regulation of family forms.

Panel titles: "The Politics and Infrastructures of Need"; "Personal  
Needs: Bodies and Selves"; and "Needing to Need: Meanings and  
Practices." For more information:http://demapped.net/need/

We hope you see you there!
