***UPDATE*** Defining Anthropology Conference

On March 12th, UTMAS will be hosting an Anthropology Conference open to anthropology students (both graduate and undergraduate) across all campuses!

Presently, we are looking for students who may be interested in presenting their research papers and posters at the conference. This is an excellent opportunity to practice making oral presentations, and receive constructive feedback before your official presentations at the end of the term as well as share your enthusiasm for anthropology with others!

Please email anthropology@utmsu.ca with a one-page abstract (around 300 words) and a brief outline of what you wish to talk about by Monday February 29th. Presentations are expected to around 5-10 minutes.

Also feel free to email us with any questions or concerns.
