Preliminary Program

The 57th Annual Meeting of the Northeastern Anthropological Association will be held at Bridgewater State University, Bridgewater MA from March 3-4, 2017.  The general conference theme, “Applying Anthropology to a Globalized World,” invites presenters to share contemporary approaches for applying the study of the human condition to the current world system.  Papers may also address general topics in all fields of anthropology and do not need to specifically address the conference themes.  All presenters, however, are encouraged to include relevant applied materials.
