American Anthropological Association 2013 Annual Meeting

Once again this year I present a list of language-related panels and activities at the American Anthropological Association’s Annual Meeting. The first draft of the list contains panels sponsored by the Society for Linguistic Anthropology. Please let us know about other relevant panels, either by commenting on this blog post or by sending an email to me (my last name “at”

AAA’s Annual Meeting Central page has the full preliminary schedule, as well as abstracts, a scheduler, and much more.

Bonnie Urciuoli also describes the SLA events in her Anthropology News column this month.

We will again this year provide on-line access to many of the handouts accompanying the talks. Presenters, please email handouts in PDF format to slawebguru “at” if you have not done so and you would like to add your handout to the page.

The SLA Program Committee has endeavored to put together an excellent set of panels, and the professional staff of the AAA Annual Meeting have worked to arrange the schedule. As always, though, many interesting panels are at conflicting or otherwise inconvenient times.

And as always, please let me know if I have misspelled your name, left out a participant, or introduced any other errors.
