|Wednesday, February 8, 2017Reaffirming SAR’s Global Commitment to Scholars and Artists|
February 7, 2017 - A recent executive order from the White House has temporarily closed the United States to foreign nationals from seven countries. The document also orders US embassy and consular officials to impose more stringent background checks before allowing foreign nationals to secure nonimmigrant visas that would permit them entry into the United States.
To our knowledge, this executive order has not directly affected any SAR scholars, but we fear that it will cast a shadow over our ability to fulfill SAR’s mission, which is to facilitate exchanges among scholars representing the broadest possible range of perspectives and nationalities, thereby helping to enrich our communities and our understanding of human societies across the globe.

2017 marks the 110th anniversary of SAR and in some respects, the goals established in 1907 continue to carry us forward today. This year’s Speaker Series explores the evolution of these ideas and the innovative ways in which SAR continues to support the intersections between indigenous thought, archaeology, anthropology, and ethics in the twenty-first century.
