CFP Anthropology Matters!

Call for Papers

Anthropology Matters!

The theme for the AAA annual conference for 2017, in Washington DC, is a

call to action for anthropologists across all subfields of the discipline.

The AAA is asking its membership to demonstrate the relevance of its

research and the application of anthropology for understanding and

improving the human condition.


For SAC members, this is a perfect continuation of the conversation we are

starting in California this spring with our Transforming Energy into Action



This is a call for panels/workshops/events that involves consciousness in

translation, investigation, influence, and action.

Potential panel topics may include but are not limited to:

 The Anthropocene

 Social Consciousness and Action

 Political Consciousness and Protest

 Consciousness and the Environment

 Anthropology and Activism


Mark Flanagan and Sydney Yeager are the coordinators for the SAC

program at the AAAs. If you have ideas for panels, roundtable

discussions, or workshops, please contact us at: or
