From Ann Stahl:

I am writing to you as section assembly leader for the Association for the Anthropology of Policy in my capacity as Chair of the 2015 Executive Program Committee (EPC) for the Denver AAA meetings, the theme of which is “Familiar/Strange.”  I’m hoping that your membership will find this a resonant theme and that it will prompt engagement among them, particularly as we are seeking to connect the meeting with pressing issues confronting our host community, as outlined in an attached column that will be appearing shortly in the electronic edition of the Anthropology News.

Pasted in below, you’ll find links where the meeting theme is described. Perhaps you can pass this information along to your membership? I would be pleased to see a proposal from among your section membership for an Executive session at the meetings. The due date for proposals is Feb 17. Though invited sessions no longer need to be linked to the meeting’s theme, I’m also hopeful that your colleagues will find the “Familiar/Strange” theme sufficiently engaging that some will. With a deadline of April 15, there is more time for planning of those.

With all best wishes,
Ann Stahl, 2015 AAA EPC Chair
Professor & Chair, Department of Anthropology, University of Victoria, BC Canada
