AAA 2020: Truth and Responsibility

“There are years that ask questions and years that answer.”

― Zora Neale Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God

The American Anthropology Association’s 2020 Meeting is calling for Executive Session submissions, deadline Feb 5. This year’s theme is Truth and ResponsibilityThe meeting will be held in St. Louis, MO on November 18th through the 22nd.

What a great theme for digital anthropologists to explore. From our research interests in big data and social media, to our work with hackativism and social movements with origins in online communities, to the commitment of DANG’s members to public anthropology and open access, this year’s theme of Truth and Responsibility speaks to the core of what drives us as anthropologists.

I want to really encourage our members to submit. Feel free to share your calls for papers with DANG’s facebook and twitter. You can also email them to me and I’ll post them on DANG’s website.
