These events will be presented over a 10-day period from Thursday, November 5th to Saturday, November 14th, 2020. These events will have the opportunity for live Q&A and be recorded and available for viewing and discussion afterwards.
There are three submission types that can be reviewed below.
A host/moderator interviews one or more persons about a topic, engaging in a lively discussion, followed by a question and answer session for live viewers, facilitated by the platform’s chat feature. This event should be conversational in nature and should not include a recitation of papers.
Participants engage in a traditional-style debate led by a moderator, followed by a brief question and answer session for live viewers, facilitated by the platform’s chat feature.
Similar to the interview/conversation style event, this roundtable/Town Hall can involve up to eight participants, with a focus on a single topic or multiple topics, referencing various bodies of research and practice, and facilitated by the platform’s chat feature. We envision half presentation/half robust conversation and audience engagement. Presenters may have slides, but the tone of this event should be conversational in nature and should not include a recitation of papers.
These events will be pre-rerecorded and posted to the Raising Our Voices website for viewing, with live/interactive discussion events scheduled outside of live-streamed content times.
Proposers wishing to submit view-on-demand content will upload their submission to the portal, and select the Section they would like to review it. Section Program Chairs will review view-on-demand submissions, vetting them for quality and ensuring they meet the appropriate standard approved for inclusion in Raising Our Voices.
This audio-only formatted submission is a pre-recorded group discussion on a topic of the proposer’s choosing. Up to four participants may be included in any one podcast submission. Podcasts should be conversational in nature and are not limited by any specific content requirements. This submission type is eligible for a “TalkBack” event.*
Virtual poster submissions will include a single PDF version of the body of research, with a voice recording attached (10 minutes maximum) describing the work. This submission type is eligible for a 30-minute “TalkBack” event.* Poster proposers are encouraged to upload their posters to the Open Anthropology Research Repository for wider circulation.
Thanks to the generous sponsorship of the National Institute of Social Sciences, we are able to offer prizes for a juried competition in which graduate students who have completed (or expect to complete) their Master’s thesis or doctoral dissertation in the past two (2019-20 and 2020-21) academic years will be given a chance to summarize their project in three minutes. The presentation must be understandable for a general audience, as jurors will be journalists expecting an appropriate angle for a feature news story. This submission type will have the ability to upload slides with voice recording attached. Submitters are encouraged to upload their presentations to the Open Anthropology Research Repository for wider circulation.
For submitters simply looking to present their work independently, this submission format allows for uploading slides as well as a voice recording. Up to two co-presenters may be featured in this submission for a singular body of research work. This submission type is eligible for a “TalkBack” event. * Submitters are encouraged to upload their presentations and/or papers to the Open Anthropology Research Repository.
For eligible view-on-demand submissions, this event will be a question and answer period of up to 30 minutes and offer viewers the chance to interact with the submitters of the content. All TalkBacks will be held at a specific time (e.g., between 10am – 12:00pm daily the week before the live online sessions). The TalkBack will take place at a pre-scheduled time outside of live-streaming content hours during the Raising Our Voices. The TalkBack events are optional, and submitters should indicate their preference to host one during their submission process.
The portal is closed.
Special Events, such as Board/Business/Committee Meetings, are to be individually scheduled following the Raising Our Voices series by Sections in a time block that does not compete with other live-streamed events. For more information, please go to our Raising Our Voices Special Events page.
SVA will work with AAA to screen a live-streamed / view-on-demand Film and Media Festival with TalkBack events.
We will work on establishing other special events and professional development activities to be held throughout the year outside the Raising Our Voices series.
