2019 AAA/CASCA Annual Meeting Event Banner

Welcome to the 2019 AAA/CASCA Annual Meeting Call for Papers Site

This year, the American Anthropological Association (AAA) is thrilled to partner with the Canadian Anthropological Society (CASCA) for a joint 2019 Annual Meeting. The meeting will be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and the meeting's theme is Changing Climates: Struggle, Collaboration, and Justice / Changer d’air: Lutte, collaboration et justice.

The partnership of our organizations presents exciting opportunities for collaboration across submissions, Annual Meeting events, and programming.

Members of both AAA and CASCA will use this submission portal to submit proposals and special events for the Annual Meeting program. Out of respect for diverse cultural traditions, we request that photographs of human remains be included in presentations only if absolutely necessary. Presenting images of Indigenous human remains, in particular, should be avoided.

The submission portal will open throughout the year for various submission formats.
For a full calendar of the submission periods, visit the AAA website.

The submission portal is currently accepting Late-Breaking Session submissions via the following formats–

Late-Breaking Format for Individual Submitters:
  • Indiviudal Gallery (Poster) Submission.

Late-Breaking Format for Groups of Four or More:

  • Oral Presentation Session or
  • Roundtable.

The deadline for submitting Late-Breaking Submissions is Wednesday, September 11 at 3:00 pm Eastern time.

Please use this submission portal to submit your proposal(s). Submissions submitted outside of this portal or emailed directly to AAA or CASCA are ineligible and will not be considered for the 2019 AAA/CASCA Annual Meeting Program.
