CALL FOR PROPOSALS: PRESIDENTIAL SESSIONS
AMERICAN ANTHROPOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION ANNUAL MEETING
NEW ORLEANS, 17-21 NOVEMBER 2010
The Executive Program Committee for the 2010 Annual Meeting of the
American Anthropological Association, in association with 2009-2011
President Virginia R. Dominguez, will select a small number of
Presidential Sessions which speak directly to the theme of the
conference and serve to engage the broad constituency of
anthropologists and our interlocutors. We particularly encourage
proposals which cut across approaches and domains of enquiry, and
which bring together people who do not normally participate in the
same conversations. These proposals may take the form of traditional
academic panels, but we also strongly encourage innovative ideas;
there is room for both.
These proposals (and these proposals ONLY) should be submitted
directly to the Executive Program Committee Chair, Monica Heller, at monica.heller@...
DEADLINE: 15 JANUARY 2010.
N.B.: Proposals for invited and regular sessions are to be submitted
via AAA sections at a later date. That call for papers will be
published shortly. For information on the meetings please go to the
AAA website: www.aaanet.org.
