Posted by on Oct 16, 2012 in News | 0 comments

The Society for Psychological Anthropology will sponsor five student-faculty workshops at the AAA meetings in San Francisco this November.
The workshops are informal settings for graduate students to discuss their research with like-minded students and leading scholars in the field.

Each workshop can accommodate three students and the workshops are free and open to all SPA student members. The workshops are:

1. Linda Garro (University of California, Los Angeles)
Topic: Bridging Psychological and Medical Anthropology
Thursday, November 15 @ noon
Lunch will be provided.

2. Bambi Chapin (University of Maryland, Baltimore County)
Topic: Ethnographic Research with Children and Families

3. Claudia Strauss (Pitzer College)

4. Eileen Anderson-Fye (Case Western Reserve University)

5. Ted Lowe (Soka University of America)

To apply to a workshop, email a brief description (250-300 words) of your research and the general aims of your participation in one of the workshops to Kristi Ninnemann (kmn24@case.edu). You do not have to be a member of the SPA at the time of application, but we request you join the Society for Psychological Anthropology should you be selected to participate.

Participants will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis so please submit your application as soon as possible. The student-faculty workshops at the AAA meetings filled up very quickly last fall and are anticipated  to do the same this year.
