      Conference Info: Dates: April 28 - 30, 2006, Place: Estes Park YMCA Camp,
      Estes Park, Colorado

      Conference Theme: "Webbed Anthropology: Articulating the Relationships
      Involved in Our Efforts to Improve the World"

      To apply anthropology is to enter into larger networks and movements
      centered in social justice, cultural pluralism, sustainability, and more
      specific contemporary human challenges. Looking broadly at our domains of
      application, and our relationships to the various actors therein, is
      strategically important in a globalized world where culture and power are
      becoming ever more complex. In this context it could also prove insightful
      to explore how our theories of social change inform our choices of how and
      where to work.

      This year's conference theme, "Webbed Anthropology," is intended to cause
      reflection on the variety of relationships we cultivate in our work. Who are
      we working for, with, and against? How has our training in anthropology
      helped us to collaborate with people from other disciplines and from
      organizations of various sorts? How do we interact with those in positions
      of power? And what are we doing in the way of community empowerment and
      participation? Finally, what associations need yet be made to address social
      problems successfully?
