Destination Albuquerque

Feb 1, 2014

By Erve Chambers - The 2014 annual meetings to be held next month in Albuquerque (March 18-22) will be among the largest meetings in our Society’s history. As of the first week of February, there were 1,820 participants preregistered. We will have 250 sessions, with nearly 1,700 individuals on the program. There are about 90 posters to be presented. We are offering 11 workshops and 14 tours, a record number for our meetings. But there is more to be appreciated here than the numbers. I trust you will be impressed by the overall quality of papers and other activities to be offered, and by the considerable diversity of subjects with which the participants are concerned. Among contributors we have a good mix of academic professionals, student presenters, and I think a larger than usual turnabout of anthropologists and other social scientists who practice outside of academia. Twenty-nine countries are represented among the presenters.
