I am putting together a session proposal for the 2010 AAA meeting in New Orleans, and would like to call for submissions of abstracts.
The session will focus on graduate student works-in-progress, and will be Pecha Kucha - 20 slides, 20 seconds each.Often the only people who are aware of graduate student work are our advisors and committees, and this will be a chance to show the discipline what we are up to and where we are researching, and get feedback from the audience. This format is an exciting way to do that. With this method we will be able to accept 12 presenters for the session, and all research areas are welcome.
If you are interested, or think you might be, please submit an abstract to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 24 so that I can assemble the invited session proposal by the March 1 deadline. You will be notified by February 27 whether your abstract will be included with our submission (just in case we get more than we can handle).
If you need more information on the Pecha Kucha format, please check this wonderful review on anthropologi.info of a similar session at last year's AAA: http://www.antropologi.info/blog/anthropology/2010/pecha-kucha
