The AAA Task Force on Global Climate Change is relatively new and we have just finalized our membership, so we would like to introduce ourselves and explore mutual interests with A&E on issues about the environment, agriculture, food, archaeology, or public policy. One of the most striking things we’ve discovered so far is the growing extent to which anthropological and archaeological inquiry is focused on climate change, both historical/archaeological and in contemporary ethnography and political ecological analysis. Anthropologists are working in communities and arenas where climate change is affecting the people with whom we work, either directly via the environment, or through institutions and programs as a result of global governance related to climate change. As humans and cultures, we have been down some of these paths before (adjusting to swings in climate) with critical lessons, as archaeologists are showing us.
The A&E Meetings chair is Courtney Carothers of the University of Alaska. The Anthropology and the Environment Section sponsored 3 sessions at the 2011 convention.
