Since I will be out of town this weekend anyway, I am extending the
deadline for submission of abstracts for the SACC Merida conference to
Monday, January 23rd. Hopefully everyone has the info by now, but just

CALL FOR PAPER PRESENTATIONS
The Society for Anthropology in Community Colleges is holding its annual
conference in Merida, the capital city of the state of Yucatan in
Mexico, from March 8-11, 2006. The theme of the conference is The
Americas: Then and Now.
Proposals for paper presentations on any topic relating to anthropology
are welcome. Presentations on teaching anthropology, college-based

poster sessions will also be held. Paper presentations are tentatively
scheduled for 15 minutes. Roundtable presenters will have approximately
45 minutes in which to discuss their topic with the people who have
signed up to sit at their table for lunch. Poster presentations will be
on display for at least one hour. Poster presentations should be

Abstracts should be no longer than 125 words and must be received no
