Call for papers: “Engaging the Public in Heritage Practice”

I received the text, below, from one of the conference session organizers.

Call for Papers – Organized Session
Society for Applied Anthropology (SfAA) Annual Meeting
March 19-23, 2019
Portland, OR

“Engaging the Public in Heritage Practice”

How do anthropologists work in a variety of settings – public, private, non-profit, and academic – to ensure that public engagement is a central element of heritage practice? As a secondary question, how do we, as practicing anthropologists, define and communicate our role in these settings?

I am seeking papers on any topic broadly related to these questions. The papers can be on best practice case studies, critical research, theoretical and ethical considerations, and personal stories that address the broader context. Depending on interest, I am also open to structuring this session as a round table with short presentations and ample discussion time.

Please send me your paper idea, ideally with complete abstract (100 words or less), by October 12th. Final deadline for SfAA conference registration and abstract submission is October 15th.

Send submissions and questions to: Melissa Stevens.
