A very timely reminder from SAFN program co-organizer Abigail Adams about events coming up this week!
This is your SAFN Programs Co-organizer for the AAA annual meetings, looking forward to seeing everyone at the incredible panels we have lined up and at the Distinguished Speaker, Award Presentation, and Reception (free food!), Friday, December 1, 7:45 pm. Our distinguished speaker this year is Paula J. Johnson, of the Smithsonian National Museum of American History. You can read about her work here. In addition to her exciting talk, we will be presenting our awards at the same event. You can read about the recipients here and here, then come meet them! Many thanks to Ryan Adams, Rachel Black and Amanda Green, for their work on developing our AAA program this year.
I want to encourage everyone to join us as well at the SAFN Business Meeting, Friday, December 1, from 12:15 to 1:30 pm. This is a well-run meeting, with great colleagues and some real work to do. This is your best chance to not only have your voice heard, but take up a leadership role in SAFN yourself.
And, many of us will be interested in panels and events of the Culture & Agriculture (C&A) section. Here are the highlights that I have found:
Wednesday, November 29, 4:30-6:15 pm, 2-0670, panel, The Tourism of Food and Nature Matters
Friday, December 1, 4:30-6:15 pm, 4-1295 Networking and Mentoring in the Anthropology of Agriculture and the Environment
Friday, December 1, 9-10:15 pm, C&A Reception.
Best wishes for your work and travels in November until we gather in Washington, DC.
