Dear SACC members,
I received this e-mail from a mentor of mine, Dr. Tracy Dietz, who now holds an administrative position at the University of North Texas. She is the General Program Director for the Southwestern Social Science Association and her organization is looking into expanding to include anthropology and thus will need a program chair. If you are interested in this position, please contact her at: Tracy.Dietz@...
. Here is the message that she sent to me:
I am the General Program Director for the Southwestern Social Science Association. We are an umbrella organization for 7 disciplines -- sociology, political science, economics, history, women's and gender studies, international studies, and social work. The association would like to expand to include other social sciences including anthropology. To do that, we would need a program chair for anthropology. We will be meeting at the Manchester grand Hyatt in San Diego, April 4-7, 2012. We had 292 sessions and 1332 people on the program this year. A new discipline could be as big or as small as they would like to be. I would expect them to be small at first.
There would be some advertising on our website, of course. But, the program chair for the disciplinary affiliate/caucus would have to do a lot of the legwork because they would not have been part of the group before.
