Theme of conference: Anthropology Past, Present, and Future: Fifty years of traditions and transitions in the Southeast

University of Georgia Hotel and Conference Center at the Georgia CenterKeynote Title: Tradition and Change: 50 years of Anthropology in the Southeast

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Arthur D. Murphy, Professor of Social and Economic Anthropology, The University of North Carolina Greensboro

This year’s conference theme celebrates 50 years of the founding of the Southern Anthropological Society. As we reflect on the past 50 years, we will examine how anthropologists consider transitions in the past, present and future. Although all societies are in a constant state of flux, some eras see more change than others, prompted by social, technological, environmental, and political forces. We invite submissions that articulate anthropology’s holistic and four-field approaches to a variety of topics ranging from culture change, environmental and ecological change, health and nutrition to heritage, language, and meaning. As we look toward the future, Anthropologists are poised to apply our knowledge and inform problems facing today’s world at multiple scales, from the global to the local. In addition to celebrating traditions and transitions, this year’s conference returns to the historic city of Athens GA where the society first held their meetings in 1964.
