Announcement of CAE Program 2019

Greetings!

I look forward to seeing everyone at the annual meeting of the AAA in Vancouver. The Council on Anthropology & Education will feature an exciting program.

In addition to an outstanding set of sessions and roundtables, we have two special events planned:
The first is a conversation with Dr. Jan Hare, Director of UBC Indigenous Teacher Education Program. Dr. Hare will focus on Indigenous teacher education programs as critical sites of decolonization, reconciliation, and nation building. She will share about the context of teacher education in Canada along with similarities to the US (and elsewhere), and discuss opportunities for research/teaching/learning. It will take place on Thursday, Nov. 21, 10:30-11:45 AM, at the Sylvia Hotel Restaurant (1154 Gilford St.). Refreshments will be provided.

Second, you won’t want to miss the Ethnographic Fringe Salon. Organizer, Misha (Melisa) Cahnmann asks, “What does it mean to do ethnographic research as a creative writer, thinker, artist, doer? It is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 23, 4:00 –6:00 PM offsite at The Hangar at the Center for Digital Media (577 Great Northern Way, Vancouver, BC, V5T 1E1).

On Thursday, November 21, we also have the New Scholars (Poster) Gallery Session. It is a bit different this year. If you are a registered attendee – either a graduate student, not-yet-tenured faculty, or scholar/practitioner/educator in an educational setting (community organization, school, university, museum) – and would like to share about your research or what your school/organization is doing, please get in touch with Valerie Haywood ([email protected]). There are limited poster spots, so don’t delay in contacting Valerie. This is another opportunity to present at this year’s annual meeting.
The Gallery Session is scheduled for Thurs, 4:15–6PM Vancouver CC WEST | Ballroom Lobby | West Level

Friday’s highlight is the Past President’s Distinguished Lecture and Awards Recognition. It is scheduled for 12:15-1:45 PM Vancouver CC WEST |Room 201 | West Level 2

Friday night! It will be wonderful to socialize over over-priced hors d’oeurves, welcome new members, celebrate our 2019 George and Louise Spindler awardee, collaborate in our committees, and yes, do a bit of business. This is all happening at the Business, All –Committee Meeting and Social (with food & cash bar), 8:00 – 11:00 PM Vancouver CC WEST | Room 211 | West Level 2

Next, this year’s outstanding INVITED sessions will both take place on Saturday, November 23:

Forecasting Futures: Education as Speculative Practice 10:15 AM – 12:00 PM Vancouver
CC WEST | Room 119 | West Level 1

Coming of Age Between the US, Mexico, and Central America’s Northern Triangle:
Youth, Im/migration, and Education (1). 2:00–3:45 PM Vancouver CC WEST | Room 218 | West Level 2.
There are many more sessions, meetings and events to attend. You can easily view them on the online program. A list of our Special Events and Meetings is attached.
Finally, I hope you can make it to: Opening Ceremony: Creating Harmonious Environments with Architect Douglas Cardinal. It is scheduled for Wednesday, November 20, 6:30 PM – 7:45 PM at the Vancouver CC WEST | Ballroom A | West Level 1
In his message to AAA, Executive Director Ed Liebow writes about the local organizing committee (LOC) “working with representatives of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh, and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm First Nations, on whose unceded territory the Annual Meeting will take place. LOC member Susan Rowley of the UBC Museum of Anthropology has worked with the three host Nations to arrange the territorial welcome that will open the conference on Wednesday evening, according to their protocols. At the opening, a welcome and expression of support will be offered by a respected leader of the Musqueam Nation, who is specifically authorized to speak on behalf of the Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh Nations as well. Douglas Cardinal, a renowned Métis/Blackfoot architect, will present the opening keynote, in conversation with past AAA President and University of Toronto professor Monica Heller. This is an event you won’t want to miss” (November 8, 2019).

I wish you all safe travels.
