Final Reminder – Abstracts for ACYIG Annual Conference Due TODAY 12/2/2013

2014 ACYIG Conference Will be Held in Charleston, South Carolina, February 12th-15th

Deadline for Abstract Submission: TODAY Monday, Dec. 2, 2013

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.
