Annual Meeting of the American Anthropological Association
Washington, D.C., November 29 – December 3, 2017
African Nations Confronting Famine 2017
Please consider the attached CFP and circulate to any person or group who may be interested. I would also be delighted to have a volunteer as co-organizer/chair.
Please send expressions of interest and comments asap and no later than 31 March. Include the geographic area and topical issue(s) you would like to address. I want to have time to rewrite the abstract in light of participants’ interests.
Note that as a Roundtable contributor
• you do not need to write an abstract,
• you do need to register by 12 April—10 April would be better—at the AAA website with AAA dues paid or membership waiver (I know the final final date is 14 April but I am going to need those last days to make final organizational adjustments and to pull my hair out as AAA system falls over in final rush as usual.)
• you will speak 5-10 minutes, then participate in discussion with audience and panel
• your participation counts as your major role under the AAA 1 plus 1 rule
I am interested in bringing this unfolding tragedy to the attention of as wide an audience as possible, as well as probing the ways anthropology/-ists can make a difference here, so I invite comment and suggestion from everyone, whether or not you wish to be on the panel.
