Boycott and Open Forum at AAA


Format for December 4th Members' Open Forum on Engagement with Israel
and Palestine

Posted on November 13, 2014 by Joslyn O.

Today's guest blog post is written by Ed Liebow, Executive Director.
Last July's Anthropology News mentioned a variety of ways in which AAA
leadership is trying to foster dialogue and information exchange among
AAA members on anthropologically relevant issues related to
Israel/Palestine. We mentioned there that anOpen Forum would be held
at the Annual Meeting; it has now been scheduled forThursday 4
December, from 13:00 to 14:15 in the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel,
Ballroom Salon 2. Our goal is to facilitate dialogue among AAA
Members, bringing to bear on the conversation the culture of inquiry
and analytical skills characteristic of our profession.
The frame for the discussion is: what issues related to
Israel/Palestine are relevant to us as anthropologists, as members of
a scholarly association, and to the AAA as an association of
Here is what you can expect at the Open Forum. The hall will be
arranged with a number of tables; the hall is large and we can
accommodate many small groups. You will be encouraged to sit with
people you do not already know well. There will be introductory
remarks from Monica Heller, the AAA President, a brief update on the
work of the AAA Task Force on Engagement on Issues related to
Israel/Palestine by the Task Force chair, AAA Past-President Don
Brenneis, and a short explanation of the forum's format by our lead
facilitator, Tarek Maassarani. The process will include an opening
round to build trust and familiarity amongst participants; several
discussion rounds with prompts to share what questions, knowledge,
perspectives, and experiences participants bring to the table; and a
reflective closing round to share insights and their relevance beyond
this one event.
Participants will also be given index cards that they can place in
feedback boxes as they leave the room. Facilitators will be asked to
fill out a reflection form immediately following the dialogue to help
us better understand what happened at each table. If there is time, we
might be able to hear from some of the facilitators before we need to
vacate the room. Since the objective at this stage is to foster
dialogue among members, we will check badges at the entrance.
Executive Board members, Task Force members, Section Assembly
leadership and AAA staff will likely attend as observers. We will ask
the press to respect our privacy during the Forum, though we are happy
for participants to speak to the press (or blog or tweet) before and
after the event. We are also open to considering further such events,
whether open only to members or not.

Call for IUAES-TOURISM regional representatives

Dear colleague,

This is a message from the International Union of Anthropological and
Ethnological Sciences Commission on the Anthropology of Tourism
(IUAES-TOURISM). The main objective of IUAES-TOURISM is to promote
the anthropology of tourism in the fields of research, teaching and
public dissemination. The Commission facilitates the networking
across the globe of people who share this interest. We want to
strengthen the global approach of the commission and to increase its
activities. We therefore invite anthropologists to become regional
representatives. The task of such a representative would be to
inform the global community (primarily via the mailing list and
social media) on issues, events, publications or opportunities
related to the anthropology of tourism in their respective area (or
beyond) and to forward information from IUAES-TOURISM to their
regional contacts and networks. This is a position of trust without a
heavy workload. We believe that a better regional coverage will
enable IUAES-TOURISM to become more truly global.

If you are an anthropologist and interested in becoming a
IUAES-TOURISM regional representative, please send a short introduction of yourself, the region you
propose to cover, and your interests in the field of anthropology of
tourism. The deadline is Nov. 30th, 2014.

Yours, Mari Korpela, Noel B. Salazar and Yujie Zhu (the co-chairs of
the IUAES-Tourism)

CASCA2015 Panel CFP: Indigenous Knowledge Landscapes in Canada

Indigenous Knowledge Landscapes in Canada

This symposium will focus on issues of relations between settlers and
Indigenous peoples, particularly in Canada, and the role(s) that
anthropology could play in making a positive contribution to that
relationship. Foci include, but are not limited to, the relationship between
anthropology/ists and Indigenous and decolonizing methodologies and how we
are challenged by/ critical of/ welcoming of this emerging literature.
Examining the implications of re-readings of the history of the terms
Canadien and Métis and how they could potentially have an impact on the
contemporary debates surrounding definitions of Métis identity. Moves toward
more participatory approaches in collecting, selecting and managing
Indigenous-related records. How settlers and Indigenous peoples are using
various media to create new landscapes of knowledges, to stymie their
production or to reproduce old antagonisms. The role of anthropologists in
translating between police and corporations in land/resource conflicts.
Other foci are welcome.

Please respond to Craig Proulx
