Hello Anthropology Section,

The August 1 deadline for abstracts is fast approaching! Make sure you get your abstracts, workshops, symposia, and special seminars submitted by the deadline. Late submissions will not be accepted. Please ensure that you adhere to the AAFS guidelines for abstract submission. We are looking forward to putting together the program!

As a reminder, the theme for the AAFS 2019 meeting in Baltimore, MD, is Diligence, Dedication, and Devotion. AAFS President Susan Ballou brings into focus the fact that many of us are on call 24/7, we stay late to get results, we often get called out of bed to respond to work situations, and we choose our jobs in order to help society.

As you finalize your abstract, special session, seminar, or symposium, feel free to contact your Program Chair Kristen Hartnett-McCann ( and Co-Chair Marin Pilloud ( at any time with questions.

Thank you!
