Nearly 50 years after the landmark conference "Man the Hunter" in 1966, the study of huntergatherer societies continues to be a major topic within the social and human sciences. Some of the topics and concerns – egalitarianism, sharing, conflict resolution – remain central, while others – such as social evolution – have lost broad-based interest. Thus, while scholarly trends have changed over time, the goal of the initial conference is still valid. The general question of CHAGS 11 therefore is how the results of the last 50 years of hunter-gatherer studies can be evaluated, and utilised for the present and future. Today, many hunter-gatherers are forced to give up their lifeways and subsistence practices, while they figure prominently in public discourses about ecological and ideological alternatives to industrial society. Thus, CHAGS 11 will attempt to attract a variety of stakeholders in these debates – indigenous representatives, NGOs, scholars, etc. Based on fieldwork and research among all kinds of hunter-gatherer societies from all perspectives our disciplines have to offer, the goal of CHAGS 11 is to bring old and new hunter-gatherer studies back to the center of the human and social sciences.The "11th Conference on Hunting and Gathering Societies (CHAGS 11)" will be a joint effort by the four anthropological institutions in town – the World Museum Vienna (formerly the Museum of Ethnology), the Institute for Social Anthropology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences, the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Vienna, and the Anthropological Society Vienna.
