The 2013 conference has come and gone, but check out a video of the "The How, Where, and Why of Traditional Cultural Properties" Symposium:
ANTHROPOLOGY, BECAUSE IT MATTERS.
The usefulness of Anthropology as a discipline, of Anthropological knowledge and training has been seriously challenged across North America over the past year. While our field has certainly been defended, we as Anthropologists need to redouble our efforts to show how the practice of Anthropology matters. We know it matters, and at this conference, we want presentations by representatives of Tribes, Academia, Federal Agencies, and private sector consultants demonstrating how the field of Anthropology is not only alive and well, but crucial. The conference also strongly welcomes symposia and papers on any Anthropological topic in all four subfields.
Please see the conference schedule. The conference will be held at the University Place Hotel in Portland, OR. Please make reservations directly with the hotel at 1-866-845-4647 and mention the Northwest Anthropological Conference. Other reservation sources, such as travel websites, on-line reservations, or the national reservation system, may indicate that there are no rooms available due to the block of rooms being held for this conference.
