ACYIG 2015 Conference: Reminders and Travel Tips

The buzz is on about the 2015 conference of the Anthropology of Children and Youth Interest Group, if the recent AAA meetings were any indication!   This is a reminder of the deadline for submitting a proposal:  January 10, send to cdellclark2@gmail.com.  The call for papers can be found here.

Also a couple of travel tips to make this conference even more affordable than it is already.  If you live within reach of Jet Blue Airlines, they have very attractive prices for flying into Long Beach Airport (LGB), an airport especially close to the venue, California State University at Long Beach.  Also, if you would like to find a roommate with whom to share a room, contact Aviva Sinervo at asinervo@ucsc.edu.  Aviva’s communications committee is helping to put people in touch with others seeking to share a room.

See you in Long Beach!
