The Anthropology Graduate Student Association (AGSA) will hold its third annual student research conference, New Directions in Anthropology, this April 23-24, 2010. This conference is part of efforts to foster community amongst students and to provide a supportive environment where individuals can share and receive feedback on their current or on-going research. Similar to previous years, this year’s conference will feature roundtable sessions on professional development, paper and poster presentations and a special keynote by an alumna from the university’s anthropology department.
UT anthropology graduate students from all sub-fields and sub-disciplines are invited to participate in this exciting opportunity. AGSA is calling for papers and posters which showcase current and ongoing research by UT anthropology graduate students in any sub-field or sub-discipline. We hope to have four panels for paper presentations that highlight work in social, physical and linguistic anthropology and archaeology as well as in the related areas of Folklore and Public Culture, African Diaspora and Borderlands Studies, Activist Anthropology and Women’s and Gender Studies. Posters will either be featured on Friday, April 23rd during the opening reception or during the presentation of research papers on Saturday, April 24th.
The deadline for submission of abstracts is March 10, 2010; submitters will be notified of acceptance by March 26, 2010. Abstracts for papers should be emailed to email@example.com. They should be limited to 300 words and should be accompanied by a brief bio stating research interests, subfield, year in the program and contact information (email address and phone number). Poster proposals should be similar, but the email title should specify that they are for the poster session.
Please direct any questions about proposed paper or poster submissions to the above listed conference email address.
