AAA is pleased to announce that for the first time in its history, membership has reached to more than 12,600. As the discipline of anthropology enjoys a growing interest among students and the general public, AAA aims for continual growth.
“I am delighted to reach a new record in membership,” says AAA President, Leith Mullings. The largest sectors of membership growth are among professional and student members. The diversity of anthropology reaches into many aspects of everyday life. AAA has 38 sections representing various disciplines, interests and affinities within the anthropological community.
As AAA prepares for its 112th Annual Meeting, it has already seen a record setting number of paper and session submissions. The meeting will be held November 20-24 in Chicago, IL. This year’s meeting theme is Future Publics, Current Engagements. Registration will be open to members and the general public in early fall.
