ExtrACTION and Environment TIG – CALL FOR SESSIONS, PRESENTATIONS, AND POSTERS
Society for Applied Anthropology 80th Annual Meeting
“Cultural Citizenship and Diversity in Complex Societies”
The SfAA’s ExtrACTION and Environment topical interest group (TIG) welcomes organized sessions, individual papers, posters, and more* that deal with any aspect of social scientific engagement with resource extraction, environmental politics and activism, and human-environment relationships. We are delighted to include sessions you organize but can also place individually-submitted abstracts into an appropriate session. We look forward to seeing you!
The theme for the 2020 SfAA meeting is “Cultural Citizenship and Diversity in Complex Societies.” As one of the most interesting—and most imperative—dimensions of contemporary cultural citizenship, we anticipate a stimulating set of presentations and conversations around key environmental themes.
*Beyond the usual conference papers, we welcome community studies, practical workshops, film screenings, poster presentations, theoretical and ethical analyses, poetry, plays and puppet shows, site tours, and more!
HOW TO GET INVOLVED:
OPTION 1: It’s not too late to organize a session! Take ownership of a topic and invite others to participate. You can ask people you know or send out a “call for papers” on the ExtrACTION listserv (extraction-TIG@googlegroups.com) or another relevant list. All you need is a 100-word abstract for the session. Paper authors will supply their own 100-word abstracts.
OPTION 2: Propose an individual presentation of your work. All you need is a 100-word abstract. We’ll form the actual sessions. For those who wish to submit individual papers, there will be a button to click to indicate the TIG cluster you want to review your submission within the SfAA submission web portal. Just select ExtrACTION and Environment!
All sessions and papers should be submitted through the SfAA’s website, which can be found at https://www.appliedanthro.org/annual-meeting. The deadline for submissions is October 15.
