Dear SEA members and friends,
We look forward to seeing many of you at the SEA events this year. We have a variety of interesting panels, on diverse topics, including employment and unemployment, moral economies, migration, capitalism.
We also look forward to seeing you at the SEA Business Meeting, Friday, at 12:15. We will talk about the forthcoming SEA meeting on Financialization next April and some other new SEA initiatives. We are also looking for anyone who would like to assist in expanding SEA’s social media presence. We value your input and ideas, so please come.
We also look forward to seeing you at our reception on Friday, at 7:45, as well. Meet other economic anthropologists, have some food and drink in a relaxed atmosphere. Bring your friends.
