CSAS Update

The Central States Anthropological Society is re-organizing after the unexpected resignation in June 2020 of its president, secretary-treasurer, and several Board members.  The remaining members of the CSAS Board have been discussing options for continuing CSAS within AAA, as a Section or in some other form.  AAA leadership has been itself discussing more options for smaller Sections such as CSAS, and considering also, encouraging regional meetings.  We anticipate early in 2021, a proposal from AAA for CSAS within some revisions in AAA structure.  In the meantime, we CSAS Board members and past presidents are an active working group communicating with AAA’s president and staff.  CSAS marks its centennial in 2021; though we can’t have an in-person celebration in April, we look forward to continuing the oldest section of AAA into its next century.

For more information, email Alice Kehoe  akehoe@uwm.edu .  Working group is Wayne Babchuk, Kathryn Kamp, Alice Kehoe, Lance Larkin, James Stanlaw, Rick Feinberg, and Nobuko Adachi.
