2014 ACYIG Conference Will be Held in Charleston, South Carolina, February 12th-15th
The ACYIG Board cordially invites ACYIG members to join scholars from the Anthropology of Children and Youth Interest Group (ACYIG) of the American Anthropological Association (AAA), the Division of International Psychology (Division 52) of the American Psychological Association (APA), and the Society for Cross-Cultural Research (SCCR) at next year’s Fifth Annual Meeting of ACYIG.
The conference will be held from February 12 to February 15, 2014 at the historic Francis Marion Hotel in Charleston, SC. Some may remember that ACYIG held its joint meetings with SCCR in Charleston in 2011—it was an extremely popular conference, and we look forward to returning to this wonderful venue.
Anyone who would like to have work considered for inclusion within an ACYIG poster session, paper session, symposium, panel discussion, or conversation hour at the conference may submit an abstract of the work (200 words maximum) by Monday, December 2, 2013. Please note that if you wish to submit any abstracts for consideration by the SCCR, the deadline is earlier—November 11, 2013.
