The Southern Anthropological Society is a professional organization of anthropologists who live and/or work in the South. Our members are anthropologists in all four fields, and we are especially happy to welcome graduate and undergraduate students in anthropology. The professional benefits offered through SAS include a peer-reviewed journal, Southern Anthropologist, annual meetings, an electronic newsletter, a database of professional anthropologists who are members, and regional social and professional networks. Please browse the site and see what we have to offer. If you have any questions or wish to contact someone from the Society, please contact Dr. Brandon Lundy, our Secretary Treasurer.

Theme: Four-Field Anthropology: Weaving Our Discipline with Community
We especially welcome papers that address the symposium theme.
This year’s conference theme examines how anthropologists work with communities to preserve history and language, to seek solutions to community issues, and to engage in partnership and collaboration with families and agencies in addressing concerns and providing options. Four-field anthropology allows us to not only partner with communities but with our colleagues to contribute their sub-field expertise and contribute different perspectives on an issue. As we move into the 21st Century we can draw upon our holistic discipline to examine topics ranging from climate change to language death. The Cherokee basket watermarked in our 49th annual meeting program, is exemplary of how skilled hands can weave multiple types of materials and patterns to create a single outcome that successfully reflects heritage, meaning, and purpose. Coming back to a four-field discipline provides stronger resources to meet our purpose of understanding the human experience.
