To whom are we giving evidence and toward what ends? For whom are we writing? To whom are we accountable, and in what ways? General Call for Papers Abstract new submissions deadline is May 15 at 3pm est. Meeting registration and AAA membership is NOT required for all participants at the time of submission but will be required if accepted. Start Your Submission: https://www.americananthro.org/AM_CFP

Founded in 1902, the American Anthropological Association (AAA) is the world's largest organization of professional anthropologists. The AAA is governed by a 17-member Executive Board, elected by the membership. Members belong to one or more of 40 Sections. The leaders of these sections form a Section Assembly, which provides advice to the Executive Board on matters of policy, communications, and Association operations.

Internship Info

Each summer, the American Anthropological Association offers two internship opportunities funded by member donations. Internships are six weeks in length and usually extend from early July through mid-August. Internships are unpaid, however they are provided housing and a meal/travel stipend.

Interns will spend approximately 40 percent of their time working onsite at the AAA offices in Arlington, VA, and the other 60 percent of their time working on-site at one of two locations: The Naval Historic & Heritage Command and The Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage.

Learn about the incredible students who have been AAA interns in the past in our AAA Summer Internship Hall of Fame
