Awards, Authors, Anthropology: AAA 2014 Conference Recap

This year’s American Anthropological Association conference in Washington, D.C. was quite a success for Berghahn Books.

 

The conference started Wednesday, December 3, with an awards ceremony, at which our publisher Marion Berghahn earned the AAA Executive Director’s Award.

The Berghahn booth was teeming with activity, with authors stopping by to say hello and look over recent additions to our Anthropology list (including some of their own!).

Friday afternoon, Berghahn hosted a wine reception to — among other causes for celebration — recognize the launch of our Environment and Society journal’s companion site www.envirosociety.org. Also worth noting, Focaal and Museum Worlds launched companion sites this year.

All in all, a great success! We look forward to seeing everyone at AAA 2015 in Denver!
