At the SfAA Meeting in Albuquerque, we will have the 1st meeting of the new TIG on Business Anthropology. It will take place on Thursday, March 20th, at 3:30 pm. Gitti Jordan and I will host the meeting. Come and join us in ‘Alvarado D’ to meet other people doing or interested in doing business anthropology.
