ANSA invites papers from postgraduate students at various stages of their research, particularly (but not exclusively) those who have recently completed fieldwork, submitted, or graduated. Joint papers are welcome, as are papers that embrace the conference theme "Life in an age of death".
The Australian Network of Student Anthropologists (ANSA) invites papers from postgraduate students at various stages of their research. This may include papers from postgraduates and honours students outlining their research projects or methodology, those who have recently completed fieldwork, those who have submitted their thesis, or have recently graduated. Joint papers are welcome, as are papers that embrace the conference theme of "Life in an age of death". The panel will be grouped into sessions by sub-themes and/or by the regions in which the work was undertaken, depending upon the range of abstracts received. One of ANSA's main objectives is to support anthropology students and early career researchers as they establish themselves in the discipline. Another is to encourage interaction and relationships between students /ECR's and academics and applied anthropologists. At the AAS conference, ANSA will do these things by providing a space where emerging anthropologists and researchers can practice their skills in a supportive environment, and in which relationships between emerging and established anthropologists can be encouraged.
