*Call for Papers*

The Society for Economic Anthropology seeks proposals for papers and
poster presentations for our 2005 annual meetings, April 21-23, 2005 at
Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire on the theme: “Economies and
the Transformation of Landscape*.*”

            The SEA meetings provide a rare opportunity for a focused
and coherent program of presentation, with time for critical discussion
in a convivial intellectual setting. About 15 papers are selected from
abstracts for a program that allows 20 minutes for presentation and 20
minutes for discussion in a single plenary session over two days; 20-30
additional abstracts will be selected for an afternoon poster session.
Each SEA conference also produces a book on the same theme.  Submitting
a paper for the plenary session is a commitment that you wish to be
considered for inclusion in this volume.

    We seek papers that address the interconnected themes of
    */conceptual and physical transformations of the landscape/,* as
    well as those that focus more specifically on one or more of the
    following cross cutting sub themes:

    * Livelihoods and Access to Resources (including the intersection of
      economy-ecology at household, community and regional scales).
    * Political-economy of landscape transformation – (including the
      role power plays in transforming landscapes).
    * Beyond the local – multilevel transformations (including links
      between interregional and global processes and their impacts on
      local landscapes).
    * Historical and pre-historical processes of human adaptation and
      environmental change
    * The "constructedness" of landscapes – physically and cognitively –
      and the role of the economy in conceptualizing the environment.

We encourage archaeologists to submit abstracts as well as cultural
anthropologists, geographers and other social scientists concerned with
economy-ecology linkages. Send an abstract for a paper or poster of
400-600 words to Lisa Cliggett and Chris Pool, Department of
Anthropology, 211 Lafferty Hall, University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY
40506-0024.  Deadline for abstracts is November 1^st 2004.
