“Die in” held at American Anthropological Association Meeting

By Department of Sociology and Anthropology on December 15, 2014

The annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association (AAA or “triple A”) reflected what is happening in our society at large this year, with both protests and academic papers related to the reaction to the Ferguson and Staten Island decisions. Anthropologists reacted by joining the street protests in Washington DC, the site of this year’s conference, and by holding a “die in” at the conference hotel. In the following post, Faye V. Harrison, a prominent American anthropologist, reflects on the personal and intellectual implications of this historical moment.
