Dear Colleagues-


  I am attaching the call for papers for the SAS Meeting in Raleigh from 7 t0 9 April.  Some of you may receive this notice in a couple of forms, but I want to make sure that everyone in a couple of our databases received this reminder.  In sending this message, I want to be clear that the executive committee of the SAS is monitoring the COVID situation.  There are no statewide mask mandates in North Carolina at the moment, although we can work on spacing and have discussed safety protocols with the hotel.    We have a block of rooms at the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel (, and the room block is reserved under – Southern Anthropological Society.  Room rates are $159/night.


  We have until 31 days before the meeting begins to redirect if that becomes necessary, so please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions.  We welcome formal paper proposals, posters, and roundtable ideas that can contribute to furthering our anthropological connections and keeping the SAS active through this difficult period.  Proposals don’t have to directly address the conference theme, and reports on work in process would also be welcome.  The SAS has been an important space for graduate and undergraduate participation from its inception, so please make note, as well, of the student paper competition, papers due also at the end of February.


   I also want to take this space to say that we have plenty of space in the organization for people who want to contribute their skills and interests to the work of the society.  Specifically, we a need for contributions in the following areas as we seek to strengthen our outreach and program visibility over the next couple of years:



  Feel free to contact me with questions about these roles or suggestions ([log in to unmask]).
