All anthropologists and members of related disciplines who are interested
in the relationship between agriculture, society and the environment are
invited to the Culture and Agriculture Section Business Meeting at the
AAA Annual Meeting in Atlanta on Thursday 12/1 from 5:45-7:15 pm in
Crystal Ballroom C.

Also, the C&A Section has organized a wine & cheese rondtable at the
meetings schedulted for Friday 12/2 from 6-7:30. There is still space
available at the following tables. "Are indigenous farmers destroyers or
conservers of nature? The science and politics of indigenous knowledge
in sustainable agriculture," hosted by David Cleveland; "The political
ecology of agricultural/aquacultural development," hosted by Susan
Stonich; "The deconstruction and reconstruction of the US agro-food
system," hosted by Laura DeLind and Jane Adams; "The Zapatistas and the
politics of land use in Chiapas: implications for agrarian change and
Indian/State Relations in Mexico," hosted by Duncan Earle and Scott
Whiteford. Roundtables are usually by pre-registration only, but in this
case there is still space available on a first come first served basis.
I do not know in which room the roundtables will be held. See the
program for that information.

The Culture and Agriculture Section always welcome scholars from any
sub-field of anthropology or other disciplines who share an interest in
ag issues. The business meeting is a good place to get acquainted and
join the group. Bill Loker
