This was our first time at the Society for Applied Anthropology conference, held this year in Seattle. I was lucky enough to attend and have a chance to nose round the city as well! It was really good to meet a lot of new people (delegates and exhibitors alike) who were very welcoming, and to introduce Channel View/Multilingual Matters and our books to everyone.
There was a variety of fascinating papers, some of which I managed to get to and learned a lot in the process! The Twilight session was my favourite though 🙂
Considering the amount of coffee available (I did visit the original Starbucks) Seattle seems like a very laid-back city and I had a fun day after the conference seeing some of the sights.
All in all, the trip was a great introduction to anthropology and we hope to catch up with a few faces at the AAA in November!
