CFP: ATIG’s sponsored session for 2018 AAAs in San Jose

Call for Proposals for ATIG Invited Panel at AAA 2018 Meeting

The American Anthropological Association’s Anthropology of Tourism Interest Group (ATIG) is soliciting proposals for the ATIG-sponsored session (an “invited panel”) to be held during the 117th AAA Meetings in San Jose, California from November 14-18, 2018.

Prospective Invited Panel proposals should prioritize the use of tourism as an analytical framework or object of analysis, and should contribute to the anthropology of tourism, broadly conceived.  Panels that focus on the critical examination of the 2018 meeting’s theme, “Change in the Anthropological Imagination: Resistance, Resilience, and Adaptation” are especially welcome, but panels conceptualized around other questions will also be considered.

Proposals to ATIG should be for complete panels.  As per AAA requirements, panels include 7 15-minute slots, which may be used for either paper presentations or discussants.  We encourage ATIG members to use the listserv and Facebook page to seek colleagues interested in presenting on related topics.

ATIG Deadline for proposal submission: Friday, March 23, 2018

Final deadline to submit panels to the AAA is April 16, 2018.

Proposals Must Include:

  1. Title and Abstract of proposed session
  2. Names of Session organizer(s), affiliation, contact email(s), and phone
  3. List of Papers, including titles, abstracts, author names and affiliations

Please direct any questions, and submit panel proposals, to Clare A. Sammells, ATIG Program Chair, [email protected]
