Southwestern Anthropological Association Call for Proposals

SWAA LOGO FINALHappy New Year!  It’s time to submit your abstract to the 87th Annual Southwestern Anthropological Association Conference.  We invite the submission of your paper, poster  film and/or session abstracts until February 15, 2016. The theme for the 2016 Conference is Sustainable Humanity:  Learning from the Past and Planning for the Future.  Come and share your work on April 22 and 23, 2016 at Humphreys Half Moon Bay Inn and Suites on Shelter Island in San Diego, California.  The venue will provide us with a beautiful, tropical ambiance in which we can present, discuss, explore and learn from colleagues and friends.

Please note that SWAA has a shiny new website, where you can find all of our conference information.  Please go to http://www.swaa-anthro.org to read the CFP, register, submit an abstract and get contact information for making your hotel reservation.  To get the conference hotel rate, just say that you are a SWAA participant when you call the hotel.

We are honored to have distinguished anthropologist, Dr. Laura Nader, as our Banquet Speaker for the conference.  She will be speaking to us about her latest book, “What the Rest Think of the West,” in which she allows us to see ourselves through the eyes of Eastern travelers’ over the millennia.   As Nicholas Dirks says about the book, “ “To see ourselves as others see us” isn’t just a famous line from Robert Burns; it’s an urgent requirement for the global twenty-first century.”  Frame shifting from ethnocentric Western perspectives is an essential part of moving to a more sustainable future locally, nationally and globally.

Read about Dr. Nader and hear brief excerpts from an interview done by the Regional Oral History Office at Berkeley:  Laura Nader:  A Life of Teaching, Investigation, Scholarship and Scope by going to the ROH website:

I am attaching a flyer that you can share with colleagues and students.  Please feel free to post or forward the flyer and/or information about the conference to others who might be interested in participating!

All of us at SWAA are eager to hear what work you and your colleagues and students are doing, whether it be in archaeology, biological anthropology, linguistic anthropology or cultural anthropology, applied, public or theoretical anthropology, or some combination of any of the above.  Be you an academic, a working professional, a graduate student or an undergraduate student, your attendance and contributions are essential to a lively dialogue about what anthropology has to contribute to a sustainable future.   See you in April!

Regards,
Kim Martin
