The American Ethnological Society acknowledges with great sadness the passing of Distinguished Professor of Anthropology Leith Mullings (1945-2020) a former councilor of the AES and the President of the American Anthropological Association (2011-2013). We recognize some of the beautiful tributes that have already been posted in several fora and important initiatives to amplify her work:




Feminist Anthropology (May 2021 special issue in honor of Professor Mullings)

In a spirit of collaboration, and in an effort to extend these efforts, the AES has organized a webinar on Monday, April 5 at 7:00 PM “In Search of Emancipation: Honoring the Work and Legacy of Leith Mullings” Panelists include Drs. Pamela Calla, Javiela Evangelista, Patricia Tova with A. Lynn Bolles serving as moderator.
