Inclusion, Collaboration & Engagement
Noel J ChrismaN aaa exeCutive Program Chair It is time to make your final plans for the annual meeting, November 19-23 in San Francisco, a beautiful city with much to offer. The Annual Meeting Program Committee accepted more than 500 sessions this year. As always, the annual meeting promises to be a great opportunity to catch up on the work and lives of old and new friends and colleagues, and to attend sessions, workshops, exhibits and meetings of committees and sections. On-site child care and a WiFi zone will be provided for your convenience. To whet your appetites, the Program Committee is happy to provide you with a sneak peak of some highly anticipated 2008 sessions. “HIV/AIDS: Underscoring Needs for and Challenges to Collaboration” is jointly offered from the Association for Africanist Anthropology and the National Association for the Practice of Anthropology (NAPA). Presenters will analyze why and how we must reconceptualize our theoretical understandings of culture and society, as well as our approaches to health, development, community capacity building and international collaboration to address the HIV/AIDS crisis. “RadicalArchaeologyasCriticalAnthropology: Papers Honoring Thomas C Patterson” is sponsored by the Archeology Division. Papers will examine such issues as the influence of archaeology on anthropological theory and articulations between native communities and archaeologists. “The Legacy of Daphne Berdahl” will be presented by the Society for the Anthropology of Europe. Daphne Berdahl was one of anthropology’s leading scholars of Central and Eastern Europe. Papers will assess her contributions to such areas as the anthropology of borderlands, memory and consumption. One of the roundtables sponsored by the NationalAssociationofStudentAnthropologists, “Graduate Student Collaborations and Engagements in Environmental Change Research,” will stress how graduate students can collaborate on integrative research programs focused on the human dimensions of environmental change. The Society for the Anthropology of Consciousness and the Society for Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology will cosponsor the invited session “Black Atlantic and Caribbean Religions: Transnational Flows and Local Histories.” This session will bring together researchers documenting the histories of specific religious communities throughout the region. The Society for East Asian Anthropology highlights its session “Reinventing the Chinese State.” This panel shows, through five finelyetched ethnographic portraits, that the Chinese state has reinvented itself as an omnipresent force. NAPA and the Anthropology and Environment Section have collaborated to produce “Researching a Moving Target: Anthropological Models and Methods in an Age of Unprecedented Climate Change.” Experienced researchers and practitioners will show how their work engages their research communities in collaboration, consultation and public debate about how to address global climate change locally. The Society for Visual Anthropology’s 2008 lineup includes a diverse and engaging range of papers, screenings and special events. Highlights include the Annual Film, Video and Interactive Media Festival, which received a record number of contributions and promises to be one of the best programs to date. The Society for the Anthropology of North America will present “New States of War and Policing,” which will focus on the relationship between war-making, states and policing, and probe their convergence in the current global war on terror. The Society for Urban, National, and Transnational/Global Anthropology and Society for the Anthropology of Work will co-sponsor “Locating Labor: Anthropologists Engage Service Worker Struggles.” David Bacon, labor photojournalist and author, will put the actions of the San Francisco hotel strike into the context of transnational labor politics and help us delineate an ethnology of labor struggles. The newly formed Society for Anthropological Sciences will sponsor its first AAA sessions, which will highlight various formal methods of collecting, analyzing and visualizing data from the field, in particular methods of cognitive anthropology and social network analysis. The Society of Lesbian and Gay Anthropologists will co-sponsor, with the Executive Program Committee, a session titled “Anthropology and Transgender: Rethinking Inclusion, Collaboration and Engagement.” Trans and non-trans anthropologists, historians, lobbyists and community-based activists will constitute the exciting panel of speakers. “Rethinking Race, Biology and Genetics” is an Executive Program Committee session that promises to explore the difficult debate about the biology and social construction of race. Papers show a recognition that anthropology, despite its long engagement with the complex relationship of race, biology and genetics, has yet to formulate an effective and relevant response to the recent surge of public interest in, and misconceptions about, these concepts. “Multiple Indigenous Views of Anthropology’s Future: Envisioning a New Anthropology” is a Presidential Session that will focus on indigenous anthropologists, and their communities, who are engaging in a new, collaborative anthropology that is directed by, rather than directed at, their heritage. There are two sessions to which the public will be explicitly invited: “Pulse of the Planet: Human Rights and Social Justice in the 21st Century” and “Implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples: The Role of Anthropology.” This latter panel will consider the opportunities and challenges that the declaration presents for anthropology and anthropological practice. This year, the concepts of inclusion, collaboration and engagement guide our meeting program. With more than 500 sessions from which to choose, those who attend the San Francisco meeting are bound to connect with research and colleagues that will provide useful feedback and new insights and opportunities. I hope that you will find it to be a truly valuable experience.

The annual meeting can be a whirlwind— trying to attend all the sessions you want, presenting your own work, connecting with new and longtime colleagues, sharing ideas, participating in section meetings, attending workshops, seeing the book exhibit and much more. All these aspects of the meeting work towards the larger goal of building and strengthening our community of anthropologists. A key part of this is helping graduate students join our community of scholars and professionals, and that is why I’m writing this letter to you. As many of the more seasoned members dive right into our sessions, meetings and, of course, catching up with friends, it is easy for the opportunity to meet emerging anthropologists to slip past us. But there are a few straightforward actions you as graduate students can take to increase your network of colleagues and make the most of your meeting experience.

community, and the first step in that is to know each other’s names. You may feel uncomfortable introducing yourself to people you haven’t met before, but it is an important part of the meeting. Be forthright and friendly, polite and understanding. If someone is unable to talk to you when you greet them, hand them your card or try to catch up with them later. For some people, the meeting is the best time to talk; for others, communicating after the meeting might be better.

Ask for feedback

Have you met someone who is working in your field or working on a related topic? That person may be able to give you valuable feedback or suggestions, but you won’t know unless you ask. Your active participation in the meeting is very important both for the development of your own careers and the growth of our discipline. Not only do you as graduate students bring a fresh perspective to the issues and challenges facing our field, but you are the future leaders of the anthropological community at all levels, including the AAA. And please, if you see me there, come introduce yourself.

A challenge every year is deciding what sessions to attend. One complicating factor is the desire to support your friends when they give their own papers. While such support is important, be sure to balance it with activities that relate to your own work and research, where you can learn the most about current research, projects and theories in your field. To support your friends, review and practice papers with each other before the meeting.

Bring business cards

It is important to be able to quickly give someone your contact information. Also, it is easier to keep track of cards than random pieces of paper.
