Public anthropology conference in DC

Public Anthropology Conference: Does Government Matter?

October 6-7, 2012, American University, Main Campus

Please join us the first weekend in October for American University’s 9th Annual Public Anthropology Conference! With the US Presidential election nearing, our theme this year is “Does Government Matter?” Featured panels will take on undercover journalism; social media and national identity; documentary activism; alternative education models; public archaeology and the politics of landscape, among other concerns. We will also host a selection of workshops and open-forum events and welcome two acclaimed keynote speakers, feminist political scientist (and adopted anthropologist) Cynthia Enloe and Marxist archeologist Randall McGuire.

The schedule of sessions is attached. Registration is free and open to all regardless of educational background. Register online here.

We hope you can join us and please help spread the word by email and otherwise far and wide!

Thanks so much,

American University Department of Anthropology
