Abstract deadline extended for SEA meeting to Jan 18

Abstracts for the 2016 SEA conference are due Jan 18 to give those just coming back from break time to submit – please remember to submit them following the instructions below. Thanks, and see you in Athens!
HOW TO:
You might think that clicking on “Spring Meetings” in the americananthro.org website would do it, but this link just takes you to a description of the Spring meetings.
Instead, to register/submit your abstract, go to americananthro.org, then log on with your AAA id and password.  Once you are logged in, click on meeting registration on the left-hand side.  Then look for our meeting and click register.
The reason our deadline is Jan 11 rather than later is because we want to let participants know if their abstract was accepted in sufficient time so that people may secure travel funding.
Here is a Revised Call for Papers with more information about our keynote speaker, Dr. Kathleen Galvin, and lodging.
To further inspire risky and resilient thoughts, below are the fine entries we have received from the Photo Contest:

CAM01072BFireweed: EcoAnarchism in the Midst of State Neglect

This photo was taken by me during my summer ethnography in Fireweed Universe-City in Metro Detroit. It depicts a community space (an abandoned home), alongside a wild garden, in a diverse community where new and long term residents endeavor to survive and thrive in the face of extreme environmental and economic conditions.  — Jen Halliday, Catalyst for Change

Photo caption:  Widowed woman in a Mexicali squatter settlement
Established in 1982 by invasion, this squatter settlement was composed of some of the poorest people who had migrated to Mexicali years previously and had very precarious housing situations that in the United States might have led to them being homeless.  This widowed woman lived on the lot of friends in a house without electricity or running water and was dependent on neighbors to buy her food.  Please note:  Now deceased, this elderly woman was photographed when I did research in the squatter settlement from 1988 to 1994.  I had her permission to publish the photo from the beginning.  —Tamar Diana Wilson

Submit your SEA abstracts now – Due Jan 11

Our online system is now working – Here is how you will submit an abstract for consideration for the 2016 SEA meetings.

1.  Go to americananthro.org and log in.  If you don’t have a login id and password, make one (to the best of my knowledge you can do this even without becoming a AAA member).

2.  Once you are logged in, look to the left hand column, click on Meeting registration.

3.  Follow online prompts to register for the meeting (if we do not accept your abstract and you do not decide to attend, you may request that your registration fee be refunded).

4.  Once you are registered, AAA will automatically send you an email inviting you to submit an abstract.  Click the link and follow the instructions.
