Dear Friends

This is a Call for Papers for the annual meeting of the AJJ which will hosted by Akita International University Japan.

The Annual Meeting of the AJJ has traditionally been something of an open focus event, incorporating presentations on a wide variety of topics, and the 2021 annual meeting will have the same breadth of scope.  However, the recent worldwide pandemic suggests a special encouragement for presentations dealing with what is sometimes called “crisis anthropology” in general, for example with regard to events such as the 3/11 Great Tohoku Earthquake.

Because of the pandemic, the meeting will be ‘online only,’ except for AIU members/residents of Akita Prefecture. We will let you know if this situation changes.

Dates:  December 4-5, 2021

Venue: Akita International University, AIU, Akita city, JAPAN

Please submit abstracts (250 word limit) to kchiba at mark aiu dot ac dot jp.  Deadline will be September 15, 2021.

Fees:  Online only (free), face-to-face (yet to be decided)
