Call for Papers: SfAA 2018

The Society for Applied Anthropology (SfAA) invites abstracts (sessions, papers and posters) for the Program of the 78th Annual Meeting in Philadelphia, PA, April 3-7, 2018. The theme of the Program is “Sustainable Futures.”

The Society is a multi-disciplinary association that focuses on problem definition and resolution. We welcome papers from all disciplines. The deadline for abstract submission is October 15, 2017.

The SfAA proudly announces its second annual film festival! This competitive two-day film festival will take place at the 2018 meeting, and welcomes all kinds of visual anthropology films: documentary, fiction, non-fiction, experimental, and other genres, as long as the films are either ethnographically or anthropologically intended. As the 2018 meeting theme is Sustainable Futures, we welcome films that address this main topic, broadly conceived, as well as films on issues related to the city of Philadelphia or the Mid-Atlantic region. The submitters of selected films must register for the SfAA meetings by October 15, 2017, by submitting an abstract of the film.
