New Orleans has inspired the theme of the 2010 AAA Annual Meetings: “Circulation.” This theme is meant to encourage us to think about what happens when movement is the organizing trope of our questions, methodologies, analyses and accounts. We can think in terms of circulation across time as well as space, through different organizing principles, and in a variety of shapes and forms, inviting us to consider what triggers, facilitates, constrains, disrupts or stops flows; what is at stake in these processes and for whom.
The SVA always has a significant presence at the Annual Meeting, and 2010 will be no different. We encourage anthropologists of all ranks and with interests in visual research to contribute proposals. Deadlines for the submission of executive, invited and volunteered sessions are coming up, so please feel free to contact the SVA program committee with your questions, ideas, and submissions well before the deadlines below so that we can address any concerns and help build the strongest possible SVA program for this year.
The 2010 SVA Program Committee consists of Stephanie Takaragawa (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Jenny Chio (Jenny.Chio@uts.edu.au).
