CFP AAA 2016 Meetings in Minneapolis

The Society for Urban, National and Transnational/Global Anthropology (SUNTA) program review committee for the AAA meetings gives preference to abstracts focused on topics that engage the section’s mission and members’ research interests.  These include urban life and the urbanization process (e.g., housing and homelessness, city planning, use of public spaces, transportation), nations and nationalism (e.g., borders national identities, security), and the processes of transnationalism and globalization (e.g., migration, immigration, refugees).  These categories often incorporate crosscutting issues such as education and employment, gender, health, identity, kinship, nationalism, security and social movements.   Please refer to the AAA Website for details about registering and submitting proposals.   Please contact SUNTA program chair if you have questions about whether your proposed topic is a good fit for review by SUNTA.
