Digital Anthropology at the #AAA2015 Conference

Digital Anthropology continues to have a strong presence at the American Anthropological Conference this fall. The #AAA2015 schedule has 198 results for the word “digital” alone.  Anthropological research utilizing digital methods and addressing virtual worlds and digital technology has had growing presence at the AAAs continuously over the last 5 years, probably long that’s just the length of my personal observation. I hope to quantify this growth soon. In the mean while, I wanted to share with you the schedule of Digital Anthropology events at #AAA2015 so you don’t miss a thing. ( ok that isn’t actually possible as they have unfortunately double booked panels with related topics but we do our best).
