Dear Colleagues,

Following the AAA meetings, I'd like to extend an invitation to
Urbanth-L subscribers who aren't current SUNTA (the Society
of Urban, National and Transnational/Global Anthropology)
members. Please consider joining the organization that sponsors
this listserv!  Students, international scholars, and scholars and
practitioners from other disciplines with related interests are
warmly welcomed.

SUNTA (www.sunta.org), a section of the American Anthropological
Association, concerns itself with theories, problems, processes, and
institutions of urban, national and transnational life. Urban life and
problems in the modern world are interrelated with national and
transnational institutions (especially globalizing capitalism), processes,
and forces.

SUNTA's 700+ members, a number of whom reside outside the U.S.A.,
include academic, practitioner/applied, and student anthropologists.
Members' expertise covers most nations (including the U.S.A.) of the
world and their cities. In addition to conducting original research many
SUNTA members consult and work in or with private and public agencies
dealing with social problems, development, and policy formation. SUNTA
publishes a journal, CITY & SOCIETY, runs a listserv with up-to-date
news and other material of relevance, and publishes other materials for the
benefits of members and others. Membership in SUNTA offers students
with opportunities for mentorship and sectional participation.

To join SUNTA you must be a member of the AAA. Professional
membership in the AAA is $165. The association has special rates for
students (US$75), international scholars ($130 for group a countries, $30
for group b countries), and associate members/nonanthropologists ($110).
SUNTA membership is $32.50 for professionals, $15 for students,
$20 for associate members, and $20 for group b internationals. For more
