2014 Annual Meeting Central

2014 Washington DC Annual Meeting

AAA looks forward to seeing you this December in Washington, DC

Producing Anthropology, the 2014 annual meeting theme,  offers a provocation to examine the truths we encounter, produce and  communicate through anthropological theories and methods. As a discipline built  on blending archives of narratives, actions, sediment and bone, anthropology  has well-established methods for grappling with complex, multidimensional  artifacts. But what are our epistemological commitments to the ways we make  scientific knowledge today? What impact do our epistemic convictions and  predilections have, intended or not? What goals do we want to set for  ourselves? What partnerships should we build? What audiences should we seek?  And how will the truths we generate change as we contend with radical shifts in  scholarly publishing, employment opportunities, and labor conditions for  anthropologists, as well as the politics of circulating the anthropological  records we produce.


Registration will be available online and at the annual meeting, although will not reflect the pre-registration pricing.
Wednesday: 10: 00 AM to 6: 00 PM
Thursday: 8: 00 AM to 5: 00 PM
