If you could define your work in a single picture, what would it look like? AAA members work all around the world, in the most diverse cultures imaginable, and we want to showcase them. In addition to being featured on the AAA website as header images and on AAA's social media accounts, select photo contest images will be featured in a calendar to be distributed at the AAA Annual Meeting. http://ow.ly/mE9V30cMyDM

The Johnson’s Island Prison, built during the Civil War in 1862, was the only facility built by the Union solely for the purpose of housing Confederate war captives.

AAA member Ben Orlove, a senior research scientist at the International Research Institute for Climate and Society, said the new initiative deserves praise for its "multiple approaches to reducing the heat island effect and looking to reduce the vulnerability of people who are most affected by heat waves."
