NWAC 2008

I will be presenting at the 2008 Northwest Anthropological Conference held in (so I’ve been told) beautiful Victoria, B.C.
My presentation will be on the cultural change of land use in Skagit County over the past 60 years, using photos to analyze what people were up to, as well as what was important to people. For example, in the 1950s only one picture of the cat and because the kid was playing with it; in the 1980s lots of pictures of dogs all by themselves, they are the featured player in the article.
I’m only going for a day, so I don’t know how much I’ll be able to see, but I hope to get a little bit out of the whole deal.
I’ll write an synopsis when I get back.
