    Join the American Anthropological Association and thousands of anthropologists for the 2020 AAA Annual Meeting on November18-22, 2020. Build lasting connections, uncover new career and mentoring opportunities, and explore the latest research. This year’s theme is “Truth and Responsibility” and is a call to reimagine anthropology to meet the demands of the present moment. The imperative to bear witness, take action, and be held accountable to the truths we write and circulate invites us to reflect on our responsibility in reckoning with disciplinary histories, harms, and possibilities. 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
