American Anthropological Association
112th Annual Meeting Call for Papers
Chicago November 20-24, 2013
Future Publics, Current Engagements
The American Anthropological Association is partnering with the international film and broadcasting company, WebsEdge, to bring Anthropology TV to this year’s AAA Annual Meeting in Chicago from 20-24 November 2013.
Anthropology TV will be an onsite conference television channel featuring a new episode daily, screened online, around the venue, as well as on a dedicated television channel in selected guest hotel rooms.
This venture serves to raise the visibility of the hard work of anthropologists and to provide an opportunity to learn about the complex questions engaging our community today and the leading edge research that is improving lives.
Each daily program has two features: “Thought Leadership” and “Conference News.” Thought Leadership pieces are five-minute sponsored film segments showcasing programs and case studies from the field of anthropology. Conference News is a daily program of conference highlights, featuring “behind the scenes” interviews, coverage of conference events, and reactions to the day from attending delegates.
WebsEdge will be reaching out to organizations and agencies to describe the “Thought Leadership” program and to seek their engagement in creating the five-minute documentary-style films profiling particular aspects of their project work.
There are a limited number of spots available for the five-minute films. If you would like to explore having a film featured on Anthropology TV, please contact WebsEdge’s Director of Sales:
