This event includes the annual Graduate School Fair in addition to special programs designed specifically for students joining us in San Francisco. Anthropology students may attend Student Saturday at the discounted rate of only $50 for one-day admission.

It’s Montreal Monday!

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.

At the AAA Annual Meeting, Saturday is coined Student Saturday for the many activities and programming offered with student interests in mind. Back by popular demand, the Graduate School Fair will feature a variety of anthropology programs. And this year a session entitled, Top 10 Tips for Getting a  Job in Anthropology will feature Carol J. Ellick and Joe E. Watkins, authors of The Anthropology Graduate’s Guide: From student to a career.

What are two other events that would be of particular interest to all students that are occurring on that Saturday?

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 messenger bag from the new AAA Café Press shop. Winning answers will be announced here later in the week, so check back often.
