Meetings of the Society for Applied Anthropology
La Fonda Hotel, Santa Fe, New Mexico
April 5-10, 2005

The Santa Fe meetings provide an excellent locale for exploring the 
closely related themes of Heritage, Environment & Tourism. Heritage has 
become a major focal point for national, regional and local development 
initiatives. As heritage is seen to have both external and internal 
value, how can we participate in such areas as heritage development and 
resource management while still defending the rights of communities to 
control how their heritages are represented? In a similar manner, the 
environment is increasingly being viewed as a kind of “natural 
heritage,” implying a strong association between environmental 
conservation and human associations with the environment.

In keeping with the Society’s interdisciplinary roots, the Program 
Committee invites the participation of a wide variety of professionals, 
including anthropologists, archaeologists, geographers, sociologists, 
folklorists, public historians, tourism researchers and practitioners, 
natural scientists, museum professionals, and others. Symposia and 
individual papers are also invited and actively encouraged in all other 
areas of applied endeavor, such as health and medicine, agriculture and 
rural development, education, migration and resettlement, business and 
corporate issues, language, urban and regional development, 
community-based and participatory models for practice, applied research 
methods and planning approaches, and diversity and human rights
