Evolution of an Academic Society

Evolution of an academic society

The Swiss Society of Americanists was founded in 1949. At first, it consisted mainly of Swiss anthropologists and ethnologists who conducted research in the Americas. Subsequently, the Society has included members from other countries and became open to many disciplines such as geography, art, history, literature, sociology, economics, etc. The Society brings together "people who are interested in the three Americas" to generate "better scientific and human knowledge of these three sub-continents, including their multicultural components" (art. 3 of the Contitution Articles of the SAG-SSA). Currently, it has about 300 members (individual and/or collective). Members come from a variety of disciplines, including anthropology, archeology, art, education, economics, geography, history, human rights, law, philosophy, linguistics, sociology and urban studies. The Society owns an important thematic library hosted by the Geneva Museum of Ethnography located at the new and modern MEG building. The SSA is member of the Swiss Academy of Humanities and Social Sciences (SAHS).

 

An Open Society: Culture and Science

The Swiss Society of Americanists, whose headquarters are in Geneva, aims to bring together people interested in the three Americas, seeking in particular the active participation of members from these regions, and to promote better scientific knowledge Relevant areas of human and anthropology, history, linguistics and ethnography. The Society assists with the publication of an annual newsletter, including articles in French, German, English, Spanish and Portuguese. The Society seeks to connect people who are interested in these studies.

SAG-SSA promotes the exchange of ideas and information among researchers from various disciplines who study the history, literature and culture of America. The Society promotes the exchange of ideas and information between its members through a newsletter "LA Revista", a forum for the exchange of concerns of the members, through an electronic newsletter, and through meetings, conferences, seminars, symposia, joint research projects, and any other means that the Society deems appropriate.

New paths

Today, the Society wants to increase its impact and open its activities to a wider audience. In addition to the strictly educational activities such as seminars, conferences and the publication of the Bulletin, considered essential to increase its offer:
• enrich the cultural production proposals and academic associative structures and unskilled individuals: support research and conferences or symposiums and artistic audiovisual documents to obtain a more complete image.
• create interfaces or areas of action to educate a wider audience about the issues raised and defended by the SSA.
