Call for paper presentations
2012 SACC Annual Meeting
The Society for Anthropology in Community Colleges (SACC) is holding its
annual meeting in San Diego, California from April 25-28. The theme of the
meeting is "Teaching R/evolution."
The theme for this year's SACC meeting was inspired by Michael Wesch's
"Information R/evolution" video
The video explores recent changes in how we store, organize, and share
information using digital media. It was made in order to spark discussion
how information may be found, evaluated, and created in the future. Our
will inherit that future. Part of our task as teachers is to prepare them
decisions, experiences, and jobs that don't yet exist. The conference theme
reflects that challenge.
Also implicit in the theme is the concept that teaching anthropology is an
essentially revolutionary act. We buck mainstream messages by presenting
evidence for our shared humanity, promoting tolerance over suspicion, and
dismantling the race concept. Anthropologists are revolutionary when they
the concept of evolution, period. Anthropology also teaches about
technological, social, historical, current. What do you do in the classroom
