Annual meeting of the American Anthropology Association

The 106th annual meeting of the American Anthropology Association will be held November 28th through December 2nd at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington DC. The theme for this year's meeting is Difference, (In)equality & Justice. The Society for Linguistic Anthropology is well represented at this year's annual meeting. Of course, according to Murphy's Law of Conference Organization, many of the most interesting panels occur at the same time. Here is are the SLA panels that I've been able to identify.
