Anthropology Club Goes to Washington, D.C. for AAA Conference

Recently, eleven students from the Anthropology Club had the opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C. to attend the 2017 annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association. They met Professor Luis Vivanco for coffee and discussion, also met with Professor Jeanne Shea, and were graciously given a tour of the city by UVM Anthro alumna Cara Zhuang. A favorite memory from co-president of the Anthro Club, Catie Owen: “One night we went to all the monuments in the National Mall and laid down and put our feet up on the Washington Monument, because it looks like you are walking on this never ending sidewalk.”

Some themes the students encountered and discussed at the conference included mobility, ontology, and anthropology’s historically white/colonialist roots.
