You are cordially invited to attend the business meeting for the Association of Middle East Anthropology (AMEA) at the MESA 2013 conference in New Orleans on Thursday, 10/10, 11am-1pm, Evergreen, 4th Floor of the Sheraton Hotel. At this meeting, we plan to discuss where to take this new organization in the coming years to support our Middle East anthropological community. Among other agenda items, we will also vote on the bylaws and solicit new volunteers to assist in establishing the foundation of AMEA. AMEA is a non-profit, nonpolitical organization dedicated to the ethnographic study of the culture, literature, art, music, politics, religion, and other aspects of the Middle East. The Association aims to stimulate academic research in Anthropological studies of the Middle East and to advance the study of the Anthropology of the Middle East. Through organizing annual meetings in conjunction with MESA, AMEA aims to facilitate communication and cooperation among its members and others interested in Anthropological studies of the Middle East alongside its sister organization the Middle East section of the Anthropological Association. AMEA is an approved affiliate organization of MESA.
