Subject: CFP for 2 additional A&E panels at the Canterbury 
Hotel (SF) Sat. November 20

Thanks to the CAE, A&E has received meeting space for two ad 
hoc panels at the Canterbury Hotel in San Francisco on 
November 20, from 10-11:45 AM and 12:15-1:30 PM.  

These panels will provide an opportunity for A&E members
and others who aren't attending the Board Meeting (10-11:45 
AM) to presentand discuss material.  

They will be followed by the already-scheduled events, the 
A&E Business Meeting (2-4 PM) and the Rappaport Prize Panel
(4-5:45 PM).

Consensus is that given the short time frame and uncertainty 
about level of interest, we will give priority to panelists 
who were scheduled to present on A&E sponsored panels at the 
AAA.  If there are additional spaces, we will make them 
available on the panels on a first-come first-served basis.

If you're interested in giving a scholarly paper under the 
broad rubric of Anthropology and the Environment, and are 
willing to commit  to being in SF on November 20, please e-
mail a title and abstract of +/- 300 words to
aepanel at dfay.fastmail.fm .  We are leaning towards holding 
open discussions following the papers, but if a group of 
panelists wish to nominate a discussant, please feel free to 
include this with your abstracts.  CAE is hoping to finalize 
the program by November 12, but we can accept abstracts for a 
few days after that.

Here is the hotel information again, from Tom Sheridan's 
previous e-mail:

Thanks to a bold organizational move by the Council for 
Anthropology and
Education (CAE), the Anthropology & Environment Section will 
be holding
its initial board and business meetings and the Rappaport 
Prize Graduate
Student Panel in conjuntion with CAE and other sections at 
the Best
Western Canterbury Hotel Union Square on Saturday, November 

The Best Western Canterbury is a union hotel with no pending 
conflicts.  For more information on the Canterbury, go to the 
blogsite, which provides a link to the UniteHere list of 
hotels in San

The CAE has booked 120 hotel rooms and all meeting rooms and 
services from Wednesday, November 17 - Sunday, November 21.  
For those of
you who have not made a hotel reservation yet, I strongly 
urge you to
support CAE and book one at the Canterbury to help defray 
their expenses.
The cost is $109, considerably cheaper than the Hilton.  
What's more,
you'll be able to interact with members of other sections 
meeting in San

When you do make your reservation (1-800-227-4788), BE SURE 
to let Best
Western Central Reservations know you want a room under the 
CAE block and
at the $109 price.
