The American Anthropological Association (AAA) Annual Meeting will be held in Seattle this November 9–13.
 
The 2022 AAA Annual Meeting theme “Unsettling Landscapes” encourages anthropological discussion of past, present, and future unsettlings of the world — be it through environment, power, political economy or through the collective efforts of unsettling and disrupting oppressive structures while building worlds otherwise.
 
While our worlds are defined by nothing if not change, the current unsettling of landscapes brings with it an urgency that demands conversations which may elicit feelings of discomfort and disturbance, but may also stoke hope and determination.
 
This orientation towards unsettling pushes us beyond easy narratives and facile binaries into moments of transformation. In essence, this theme asks two questions: In what ways are we, and those we work with, unsettled? How are we also unsettling landscapes and to what end?
