Upcoming Events 3/3: UTMAS Student Conference

Calling all researchers and students! UTMAS will be hosting an Anthropology Conference open to anthropology students (both graduate and undergraduate) across all campuses!

This event is held so that those who completed an independent study, internship or work study position can present their experience and research to their fellow students. UTMAS is proud to announce that we will have students and professors across all four disciplines of Anthropology presenting at our conference, with a special talk from Jubal Jamieson, a First Nations Archaeology Monitor!

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 Friday March 10,2017. Presentations are expected to around 5-10 minutes.

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