Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, AAA has cancelled the 119th Annual Meeting in St. Louis, originally scheduled for November 17-22, 2020. While we all hope the global COVID-19 pandemic will have subsided by November, uncertainty remains unacceptably high, and the health and safety of our members are of paramount concern. While the 2020 AAA Annual Meeting has been cancelled, that does not mean we will remain silent. Quite the opposite: anthropologists will be RAISING OUR VOICES through a Fall event series that will be offered online for live, interactive participation as well as view-on-demand.
The 2020 theme, “Truth and Responsibility,” will be carried over to 2021, when it can be more fully realized with our Annual Meeting in Baltimore (November 17-21, 2021). Program Chair Bianca Williams has committed to chair the 2021 Executive Program Committee. The people and groups who proposed sessions and papers in response to the 2020 Call for Papers will be asked if they would like to have their submissions deferred to 2021. If they say “yes,” their submissions will be retained and reviewed for the 2021 Annual Meeting Program, AND they have the option of preparing a submission for RAISING OUR VOICES 2020. If they say “no,” they will still have the option to prepare a submission for RAISING OUR VOICES 2020. This includes the “Executive Sessions” that were already accepted for the 2020 program, since they were in direct response to the 2020 Theme.
If you have already paid your registration fee for the 2020 Annual Meeting, your payment will be refunded in full by the end of June. Payments made by credit card will be returned to the same card. For those who paid their registration fee by check, a refund check will be sent to the name and address on your check payment.
AAA is committed to ensuring that our Annual Meeting is accessible to all attendees and that we meet and go beyond all of the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). AAA will make arrangements for sign-language interpreters, sighted guides, and other disability-related access needs and services for meeting registrants. The below links provide more information about the accessibility of the Annual Meeting and how to request accommodations.
