Welcome to the Anthropology Affiliate of the Southwestern Social Sciences Association. We meet each year during the SSSA Annual meeting. We accept papers, posters, roundtables, panels, and other presentation formats from all aspects of anthropological study, and scholars do not need to specialize in any regional or sub-disciplinary area to participate. Anthropology sessions at the SSSA meetings offer a positive atmosphere for feedback to scholars of all levels, from those new to the field, to graduate students, to seasoned veterans. Given the holistic nature of anthropology, the opportunity to network and present amid scholars from across the social sciences.
