The 2020 AAA Annual Meeting has been cancelled, but 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 the Fall Event Series. If they say “no,” they will still have the option to prepare a submission for the Fall Event Series. This includes the “Executive Sessions” that were already accepted for the 2020 program since they were in direct response to the 2020 Theme.

 RAISING OUR VOICES will feature two types of events:

  1. Live-streamed events, presented over 10 days 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 afterward.
  2. View-on-demand events, which 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.

There is no specific theme for RAISING OUR VOICES series. We are counting on our community to raise its collective voices on issues of research, scholarship, and practice that matter in this historic moment.

A call for submissions will be sent within the coming weeks. For more information about the program vision, pricing, and more, visit the RAISING OUR VOICES webpage.
