Public Policy Forum Deadline – Mar. 15

A quick reminder that public policy forum abstracts for the annual meeting are due Mar. 15, 5pm EST.  The deadline for volunteered sessions, individual paper and poster presentations, and special events is Apr. 1. Organizers can submit session abstracts here: http://www.aaanet.org/meetings/

For additional details on public policy fora, please read the following call from the AAA Committee on Public Policy (CoPP):

Public policy forums provide a format to discuss critical social issues affecting anthropology, public policy issues of interest to anthropology, and public policy issues that would benefit from anthropological knowledge or expertise. They engage panelists (who may or may not be anthropologists) and audience members in a discussion of public policy issues to enhance the application of anthropological knowledge in society at-large. Ideally, at least one policymaker participates.

Forums are generally allotted 105 minutes. Since the purpose of the forum is to maximize discussion of policy issues among panelists and audience, the recommended time allotment is: introduction (15 min); moderator-posed questions/answers (60 min); and questions/comments from audience (30 min). Recognizing that there may be diverse perspectives on panel topics, public policy forums seek to present balanced views to promote dialogue.

To submit a public policy forum, go to www.aaanet.org and follow the links to the call for papers. In the submission area, select “public policy forum” under the session option, and refer your proposal to the AAA CoPP for review, not a section. The deadline is 5:00 pm EST, March 15.

If you have questions, please contact CoPP co-chairs Monica Schoch-Spana, mschoch AT upmc-biosecurity DOT org, and Susan Greenhalgh, smgreenh AT uci DOT edu.
