Before the actual meeting, ASA will hold its Business Meeting virtually, Thursday, Nov. 3, 3:00 EDT. Watch and participate from the comfort of your home — link and agenda will be sent ahead.

At the meeting in Seattle:

Thursday morning, Nov. 11, Sue Kenyon’s session. “Do Something for your Country: Leave! The Impact of International Volunteers on Anthropology,”

Then, “Making a Difference: Activism and the Boundaries of Academic Anthropology,” organized by Jim Weil

  • LUNCH at noon break, at Indian restaurant near the Convention Center. FREE to ASA members — benefit of membership — and $15 for guests.
  • Afternoon Thursday, a field trip to the Burke Museum on the University of Washington campus. The Burke has long been the premier North West Coast museum. This year it won a national award for its “significant and exceptional contributions” to its community. Its inaugural exhibit in its Northwest Native Art Gallery is a collaborative effort by contemporary women artists, groundbreaking because in the Northwest, the majority of artistic interpretation has been produced by – and has privileged – the work of men. Bus transportation to and from the museum will be provided; a fee will be required for the field trip

Late afternoon Thursday, a virtual presentation, “Memorializing Stephen O. Murray: Interdisciplinary Synthesizer,” has been organized by Joshua Smith

Friday opens with “Conversations across Generations: Anthropology in Times of Crisis, Then and Now,” organized by ASA Executive Board student member, Sofia Pinedo-Padoch.

Friday evening’s ASA reception honors archaeologist Alice Kehoe, whose memoir Girl Archaeologist is recently published, and provides everyone a chance to relax and socialize.
