2011 AAA Annual Meeting CWA Sessions Now Available on Vimeo

The Committee on World Anthropologies (CWA) has set up a series of videos via Vimeo, that were taped at the 2011 Annual Meeting. The five sessions are of interest to members, especially those concerned with world anthropologies and hegemony, and highlight work being done outside the United States with a global, non hierarchical perspective:

On the Vimeo page of each video, conversation threads allow visitors and presenters opportunity for discussion of the panel content. The CWA would like to share these videos with the global community and hope that they will generate a lively conversation.

The AAA 110th Annual Meeting will take place this year in Montréal, Quebec, Canada from November 16-20, 2011. Now is the time to renew your membership, pre-register for the Annual Meeting, book your hotel,  and add the workshops to your itinerary.

Something many members are talking about is the future of publishing, promotion and tenure. The webinar Publications, Promotion and Tenure was a hit last week. The digital event was a fascinating conversation between three anthropologists, each with extensive background with the promotion and tenure process. The Committee for the Future of Print and Electronic Publishing  organized an online webinar to discuss the role of digital publications and the rapidly changing publishing landscape around us and how these forces intersect with promotion and tenure. Following on the heels of Friday’s webinar, today’s trivia question highlights the forum discussion on the same topic:

On Friday, November 18 from 13:45-17:30, a forum discussion on the Future of AAA Publishing will take place. Name three of the presenters.

E-mail your answer to americananthro@gmail.com by the end of today.

Two lucky people with the correct answer will win an Annual Meeting water bottle, to stay hydrated after participating in such an illuminating conversation, from the new AAA Café Press shop. Winning answers will be announced here later in the week, so check back often.
