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
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.
