Section in the News -- SEAA Launches New Website

The Society for East Asian Anthropology (SEAA) has launched a new website that highlights its commitment to discuss and promote information on a number of topics related to the anthropology of the cultures of Asia and the Pacific Basin.

SEAA is an officially recognized section within the American Anthropological Association (AAA), open to all members of the AAA, but its activities are intended to reach beyond the membership of the AAA. Any anthropologist anywhere in the world is welcome to join SEAA, to subscribe to our EASIANTH listserv, to post, and to participate. SEAA is committed to developing international channels of communication among anthropologists throughout the world. We hope to promote discussion and share information on diverse topics related to the anthropology of Taiwan; PRC; Hong Kong; Japan; Korea; other societies/cultures of Asia and the Pacific Basin with historical or contemporary ties to East Asia; transnational linkages among East Asian or between East Asian and other societies/cultures; and diasporic societies/cultures identified with East Asia.
