I am thinking of organising a panel for the AAA [AAA is the American anthropological association and is being held this year in Washington DC from 3rd to 7th December] on the theme of displaced childhoods – children who were displaced from their birth families due to wars, social engineering practices and state led racial policies and international adoption is a central process that we seek to look at in this panel. I am writing to explore if any of the members of this listserve might be willing to present their research as part of this panel.
I am starting a bit late on this – so apologies for that. But I would really appreciate hearing back from you as soon as possible/latest by 11th April this Friday as that would be very helpful for me to decide about the panel. We all have to pay and register for the AAA by 15th April [next Tuesday] so I need to know soon about your intention to participate.
Look forward to hearing back from you soon.
Best wishes, Nayanika
