Translation: I have just arrived in New Orleans to participate in the 2017 American Association of Physical Anthropologists meetings. The past few months have been a whirlwind of travel – I’ve been to both Penn State and Brynn Mawr to give invited talks, and recently returned from a week in Vancouver for the SAAs. Accordingly, it was something of a slog to have to once again prepare for a few days out of town, especially since I have a bevy of unfinished tasks waiting for me at my apartment in Pittsburgh:

I’m hoping that my landlord simply won’t have any reason to stop by.

However, I’m excited about this year’s meetings for two reasons. First, I once again get to nerd out about teeth at the Dental Anthropology Association meetings on Wednesday, April 09. This year’s workshop is on “Tooth Crown and Root Morphology.” The flyer indicates that coffee is included, which is potentially unwise for all involved given how much coffee I drink.

The second reason I’m excited is because I will be presenting a poster about…drumroll….teeth! (Yes, I need more hobbies.) If you’re interested in watching a bioarchaeologist appear semi-professional only to dissolve into an explosion of profane muttering as they discover the inevitable typos on their poster, come visit. Details here:

Title: A new method for estimating age from deciduous teeth in archaeological contexts
Date: Thursday, April 20
Location: Carondolet
Poster #: 9
Time: 1:30-6:30 pm (I will be there from 1:30-2:00)
Session: Human Dental Anthropology: Health, Disease and Other Cool Stuff with Teeth

If for some reason you have a conflict (read: are busy eating beignets somewhere), here’s the finished poster, though the image will be updated once I discover those aforementioned typos.

I’ll also be posting a link to the pdf on my Academia.edu page. Until then, I hope to see many of you at the meetings!

If you have trouble spotting me, I will be wearing a blazer and covered in powdered sugar.
