2013 AAA Meetings in Chicago

Dear ADTSG members,

Its that time of year again and we are gearing up for the American Anthropological Association Meetings in Chicago. This year, we have put together a fantastic roundtable examining issues of public engagement in the Anthropology of alcohol, drugs and tobacco. It will take place on Wednesday evening, from 8:00 – 9:45 pm in the Chicago Hilton: Grand Tradition Room.


Our panelists include:

  • William Garriott (Drake University)
  • Helena Hansen (Nathan Kline Institute for Psychiatric Research)
  • Daniel Lende (University of South Florida)
  • Mark Nichter (University of Arizona)
  • Mimi Nichter (University of Arizona)
  • J. Bryan Page (University of Miami)

Roland Moore (Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation) will be serving as moderator. We are still accepting questions in advance for the panelists (email to atdstudygroup@gmail.com) , but you will also have an opportunity to fill out question cards during the roundtable, as well as send in questions via twitter to the hashtag #ADTSG in real time. We envision this as a very open, lively conversation.

Afterwards, we invite you to join us for a social gathering to kick off the AAAs before the bars and restaurants get too crowded. We will be meeting in the lobby of the Chicago Hilton at 10 pm to venture together to a location that is to be determined. We will make sure to announce the location on our website and on twitter (@PharmaCulture) for those of you unable to attend the round table.

Our final event is our annual business meeting on Saturday evening, from 6:00 – 7:45 pm in the Chicago Hilton, McCormick Board Room. We will be discussing our progress over the last year and making plans for 2014. If you have never been to one of our meetings, we encourage you to attend!
