Society for Applied Anthropology 2024

When: March 26-30, 2024

Where: Santa Fe, New Mexico

Join us in Santa Fe for the annual 2024 Society for Applied Anthropology meeting. This year’s theme is “Enchantment and Transformation.” Learn more about the conference at the SfAA website.

From the meeting, “Social scientists have long been drawn to captivating landscapes and the study of cultural difference. In the 21st century, we must reckon with the inchoate process of facing and transforming the exclusionary relations and discourses that permeate our institutions, fields of work, partnerships, and habits of practice and thought. We invite social scientists to engage in, share, and reflect upon the work of transformation required of anthropology and to do so in the spirit of enchantment, of playful unruliness and wonderment at both the taken-for-granted and the new possibilities in our work.”
