      The Five-Fields Update is our only Invited Session.

      Any member of SACC can organize a regular session. For the last few years, I've organized (along with Jo Rainey Rogers) two sessions: "I Love It When You...teaching tips" and one on using technology. Since I am now Program Chair, I cannot submit sessions.

      Whoever decides to organize the session needs to post the submission on the AAA site.

      Cheers!
      Dianne

      The AAA Call for invited sessions closes on March 15.

      Don't miss this opportunity to participate in the AAA Annual Meeting. This year, anthropologists from around the world will meet in Chicago, November 20 through 24, 2013. The theme this year is "Future Publics, Current Engagements". Each of AAA's 40 Sections is responsible for the organization of one or more sessions.

      Last year, 6,650 anthropologists registered for the Annual Meeting (San Francisco). More than 5,600 papers and 770 sessions were submitted. We hope you'll join us in Chicago to help make AAA 2013 even more successful.

      More information about the meeting can be found here.

      Start your abstract submission now by joining AAA. If you have been a member, you can also renew by going here. (Membership is required if you are an anthropologist living or working in North America.)

      See you in Chicago!

        In anticipation for the next SACC elections, I would like to welcome our
        next candidate for President-Elect, Amanda Wolcott Paskey! I am thrilled
        that Amanda is joining the Executive Board; she will be a great asset to
        SACC.

        Amanda is currently the Department Chair of Anthropology at CRC
        (Cosumnes River College) Los Rios, in Sacramento, CA. Those who have
        been at the last several SACC meetings have heard Amanda and her
        colleagues speak on various teaching topics of interest, including
        teaching ethics in introductory anthro courses and the use of clickers
        in the classroom.

        Thanks to Amanda for her willingness to serve in a leadership role
        representing community college anthropology. Please give her your vote
        of support on the next ballot, coming soon!

        Laura

          Hello SACCers:

          We have had a little discussion about the logistics for our Invited Session, the 5-Field Panel, which our Immediate Past-President is organizing.

          In addition, there are usually one or two sessions that SACC reviews, and which focus on something to do with teaching anthropology. Dianne Chidester has organized sessions in the past, along with Jo Rainie Rodgers, on award-winning teaching strategies, and on technology or on some other theme related to the AAA theme for the year (e.g. last year's Boundaries).

          Are we organizing, collectively, anything besides the 5-Field for this year? (I know some have volunteered to participate in the project to connect to K-12 schools in Chicago, but am unsure if that counts as a session -- I'm guessing not). I am putting forward the question not because I particularly want to offer a paper, but to help make sure we have a SACC presence in Chicago. I would be willing to help organizationally if needed, but I had heard there may be a session or two brewing out there, which would be great.

          My apologies if I missed some of the conversation and am behind the times!

            Hi Mary Kay and all,

            As the immediate Past-President, I'm organizing and submitting the "Five Fields Update" session for the upcoming AAA meetings in November in Chicago. We have a terrific line-up, including some well-known bloggers and tweeters who have their pulse on trends in the fields of anthropology.

            As you know, Mary Kay, the executive committee is discussing how to move forward with panel organizing. Although it may be tight, there is still time for us to submit a second panel (or more?) by the deadline of March 15th.

            So, I wanted to echo and support MK's call for any ideas for panels, and thank you MK for stepping up to offer your help in organizing. I also wanted to throw out the suggestion that we run our popular "I Love It When You� Teaching Tips" session again this year. If there is any interest in presenting a paper at this session on best practices in anthropology courses, please contact us!

            Laura
