Call for Abstracts
Dear Council on Anthropology and Education Members,
Each year, CAE seeks to highlight the exemplary research of new and emerging scholars in anthropology and education by hosting the CAE New Scholars Invited Poster Session. Please read on for information about how to apply for this important opportunity to present work, in poster form, at the next AAA meeting in San Francisco. If you are a mentor of a new and emerging scholar, please encourage participation by passing along this call. We particularly encourage members from under-represented groups to participate.
To be considered for this event, please submit an email with the subject line “CAE poster session 2012 [your last name].” In the body of the email, please include the following information:
1) Your name, institutional affiliation, address, phone, email, and fax;
2) The name and email address of a mentor or advisor who could speak about your work;
3) A 250-word abstract that includes: the research question; the conceptual framework for the study; the methods; the findings; and the significance of the project.
These materials should be emailed to Katherine Richardson Bruna, Second-Year CAE Member-at-Large, at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 28, 2012. They will then be sent out to an Invited Poster Session subcommittee for review.
Here are a couple of things to keep in mind: If you are selected for the Invited Poster Session, you will need to join AAA and CAE in order to participate in the conference. And if you want to be considered for a CAE New Scholar Travel Stipend, you will need to apply for that separately.
I’m excited to see the abstracts come in! Please feel free to contact me at email@example.com if you have any questions.
Katherine Richardson Bruna, Ph.D.
