AAA Annual Meeting Call for Submissions

Truth and Responsibility is the theme for the 2021 AAA Annual Meeting, which will be held November 17 – November 21 in Baltimore, Maryland. APLA wants to help members connect and collaborate for the Annual Meeting. Below, you’ll find links to proposed sessions that are currently seeking additional papers. This list will continue to be updated.

The 2021 AAA Annual Meeting will be a hybrid meeting. This means the meeting will take place in-person in Baltimore, MD from November 17-21, 2021, as well as online over those same dates.

With so many different submission types and opportunities to participate in the program in various ways, AAA invite you to use this interactive Excel tool, view this PDF flow chart, or complete this decision activity (PDF optionword option) to identify the types of submissions available to you.

In accordance with the urgency of the year’s theme, the questions posed in this call for papers do not have easy answers. The hope is that those who submit proposals will take up these questions and engage in collective thinking and imagining about the truths we hold, the truths we challenge, and the responsibilities we bear in co-creating a free and more equitable world. All panel proposals should have a statement about how the panel has incorporated the goals of equity, diversity, and inclusion, and/or analysis of power.
