Canterbury Statement

The following statement was composed by participants at the Canterbury Convocation in San Francisco and sent to the AAA EB on Monday, December 13, 2004.

Please note that this statement represents points of unity. In other words, not everything that has been discussed is included here, but everything on which we agree is.

We hope that the AAA EB will consider this statement in their deliberations at the AAA EB meeting on Tuesday, December 14, 2004.

The statement is still open for signatures and is currently being considered for adoption by several other AAA sections. Up-to-date endorsements may be viewed here.

Canterbury Statement

An open letter to the Executive Board (EB) of the American Anthropological Association (AAA):

In response to recent events, we believe that reforms need to be made in how the AAA makes decisions so that it uses the collective power of its membership to advance fundamental human rights as well as carries out its functions as a professional organization. To that end, we are committed to ensure that AAA leaders and membership engage in a productive discussion about the following: 1) the levels of material support the AAA staff needs to negotiate contracts that promote collective bargaining and the right to organize while protecting the Association from liability, and 2) the need for greater transparency, accountability, and responsiveness in the management of the Association, particularly pertaining to communication between the AAA staff, its elected leadership, and the Association's constituent sections, committees, and members.

We would like the AAA EB to publicly explain what mechanisms will be put into place to address the above issues. We are particularly concerned that the EB consider taking the following steps:
• Establish an elected Committee on Labor Issues composed of AAA members who will conduct ongoing consultation with AAA staff, labor leaders, labor attorneys, and other academic and professional organizations on ethical business practices. The committee will seek alliances that promote the interests of labor while protecting the Association from liability.
• In anticipation of labor disputes in Washington, DC in 2005 and in San Francisco in 2006, renegotiate the existing Marriot and Hilton contracts to include force majeure (“opt-out”) language that protects AAA in the event of such disputes.
• Resolve to ensure that the staff
o works closely with the Committee on Labor Issues,
o pursues contracts only with union vendors,
o adds force majeure (“opt-out”) language that protects AAA in the event of a labor dispute to all future vendor contracts,
o prioritizes vendors in union environments over anti-union, “right-to-work” environments,
o and increases AAA’s conference liability insurance.
• Evaluate the conference staff and the resources available to them, with an eye towards ensuring that they are adequately staffed, trained, and managed in a way that ensures their actions are transparent and that they are accountable and responsive to the EB and membership.

Respectfully,

Sign the Canterbury Statement!

Kathryn S. Oths, Professor, Alabama. SMA, CNA:
This is a MUCH more constructive approach than boycotting Atlanta, which is absurd and only penalizes ourselves as an organization for an unfortunate, unforeseen crisis that no one could have been expected to perfectly resolve on such short notice.

Marcela Mendez, MA, Business Consultant, NAPA, SUNTA, SEAA, SLAA:
Us anthropologists should come up with a sensible solution, for the sake of the discipline.

Peter S. Allen, Professor, RIC, SVA, SAE:
I don't agree with ALL of this statement, but I do agree with the main points

Susan Ervin-Tripp, Professor Emeritus, University of California, Berkeley, SLA:
Should apply to all associations

Peter Biella, President, Society for Visual Anthropology, San Francisco State University:
This is necessary to increase member representation in AAA governance

Frances Riemer, Associate Professor, Northern Arizona University:
I fully endorse the Canterbury Statement.

Mary L. Gray, Assistant Professor, Indiana University, Department of Communication and Culture, SOLGA, SANA:
Our professional actions are a matter of ethics. They cannot (or should not) be reduced to the "bottomline." Let's plan for the future so that neither is needlessly compromised.

Alan Klima, Associate Professor, UC Davis, Cultural Anthropology, Visual Anthropology:
Many anthropologists will leave the association in disgust if these changes are not made

amy catlin-jairazbhoy, Associate Professor (Visiting), UCLA, SVA, NAPA, SAR:
Writing from India, where I'll be during AAA and missing the screening of my film. I will not take a refund, but ask that the amount go toward a deserving participant, and that comments on the film be forwarded to me. Is there a mechanism for this?

Susan Ervin-Tripp, Professor Emeritus, University of California, Berkeley, SLA:
Should apply to all associations

Reymundo Chapa, Graduate Student, University of Texas at Austin, AAA, Latin Amer. Anthro, Nat. Assoc. Student Anthro.:
I joined the AAA 3 days before the decision was made to 'escape' to Atlanta. I had faith that I was joining an organization that did more than just perpetuate itself for the sake of conferences. Was I wrong? I believe so.

Frank A. Salamone, Professor and Chair, Iona College:
The move to Atlanta at the last minute was a mistake and inconvenienced many people. I voted for a move to San Jose or cancellation.

Greg Tanaka, Professor, Pacific Oaks College, CAE, SUNTA, SCA, SAA:
AAA will probably have to either vote to become more egalitarian or split off Biological and Archaeological as a new association called something like Anthropological Sciences; if AAA does neither, I will likely end my membership and choose to join smaller associations that are egalitarian.

NANCY SCHEPER-HUGHES, Professor, UC Berkeley:
urge all AAA members to sign

Ben Chappell, Asst. Professor, Bridgewater College:
An all-AAA listserv (digest) or bulletin board would have been both appropriate and very doable as an alternative to a radio-button survey, which suggests certain conclusions are foregone. Who knows, but I suspect much of the conflict over SF 2004 could have been mitigated by better, more inclusive, and more transparent communication.

Janise Hurtig, Research specialist, UIC:
I hope the EB will begin to consider alternatives to hotel based conferences in the future

Paul McDowell, Instructor in Anthropology, Santa Barbara City College, Soc. for Urban Anthropology; Society for Latin American Anthropology; Society for Anthropologists at Community Colleges:
I hope the EB will find ways to avoid expensive contracts such as the one it entered into with San Francisco Hilton and that it is more responsive to members' views than it was in its survey of alternatives to the San Francisco site this year.

Ann S. Nihlen, professor, Univ of New Mexico, CAE:
I support the Canterbury statement of CAE
