The Society for the Anthropology of Work (SAW) invites submissions for the 2012 AAA Annual Meeting. We are open to panels and papers on all subjects, but especially encourage submissions related to this year’s theme of “Borders and Crossings.” This theme seems ideally suited to our section, as scholarship around work regularly involves the crossing of boundaries, whether cultural, geo-political, or disciplinary. We welcome panels that consider the movement of jobs, workers, information, and the products of labor across national or cultural boundaries. For complete details, click here.
