Alaska Anthropological Association 39th Annual Meeting

Event Type: 
Conferences and Workshops
When: 
29 February 2012 to 3 March 2012
Where: 
Seattle, Washington

The focus for the 2012 meeting is "Northern People and Landscapes in Times of Change." Sensitivity to change has always been a hallmark of Northern communities. The anthropological and archaeological historical record gives witness to tremendous endurance, creativity, and resilience in the face of climate, ecological, and social change. This record also provides insights into the limits of resilience, wrenching conflicts, and profound tragedies from broad to very local and personal scales.

Organizers encourage symposia and individual presentations focusing on the ever more pressing need to understand the human dimensions of changing landscapes. Welcoming the eclectic mix of presentations that makes each annual meeting fresh and engaging, organizers look especially for contributions that seek to draw lessons for the future from research
into the peoples and cultures of past and present.

Abstract submission deadline: Friday, 3 February 2012.
