2013 Annual Meeting Preliminary Program | 2013 Personal Scheduler

2013 Annual MeetingThe 112th AAA Annual meeting will be held at the Chicago Hilton November 20-24, 2013 in Chicago IL. The 2013 annual meeting theme is Future Publics, Current Engagements.

The "Call for Papers" closed on Wednesday, April 17th. No further proposals will be accepted for the 2013 Annual Meeting. Notices for all proposals are emailed in early July, followed by a preliminary schedule, which is published August 2013. Registrants will have access to the online scheduler and online program in September.
The annual meeting starts on Wednesday November 20 at noon and continues through Sunday November 24. Join the AAA to present your work, exchange ideas and network with colleagues from around the globe. Historically the AAA Annual Meeting has approximately 800 scholarly sessions, 200 special events, and 60 exhibitors.

New! NEW IN 2013!

  • Installations (a remix and rebirth of "InnoVents" and "Salons" introduced to the AAA Annual Meetings program in recent years) invite anthropological knowledge off the beaten path of the written conference paper. Like work shared in art venues, presentations selected as part of the AAA Installations program will draw on movement, sight, sound, smell, and taste to dwell on the haptic and engage AAA members and meeting attendees in a diverse world of thesenses. Presenters may propose performances, recitals, conversations, author-meets-critic roundtables, salon reading workshops, oral history recording sessions and other alternative, creative forms of intellectual expression for consideration. Selected Installations will be curated for off-site exhibition and tied to the official AAA conference program. Successful proposals will offer attendees an opportunity to learn from a range of vested interests not typically encountered or easily found on the traditional AAA program. Installations are meant to disrupt who and what we tend to see at the Annual Meetings, helping attendees encounter new people and to do different kinds of things at the intersections of anthropological arts, sciences, and cultural expression.
  • Green Registration- AAA is offering a Green Registration type in all registration categories. By registering at the Green Registration type you’ll lessen AAA’s impact on the environment by NOT receiving a printed copy of the program in Chicago. Instead, you’ll be able to take advantage of the program downloaded in e-reader format as well as the online program scheduler. The most up-to-date program information is always located online.  Green Registration rates are moderately reduced from the regular registration rates.

    Reminder: Green Registrations will not receive a printed copy of the Annual Meeting Program in Chicago.
