Faculty, students, independent scholars, and practitioners are encouraged to submit abstracts for papers, posters, organized sessions, workshops, and round-tables in all fields of anthropology, including applied, for the 96th Anniversary Meeting of the Central States Anthropological Society, which will be held at the Embassy Suites in Lincoln, Nebraska, April 6 through April 8, 2017.

The annual CSAS conference is student-friendly and features a paper competition for both undergraduate and graduate students (go to Awards page for more information). It  offers an opportunity for anthropologists from throughout the Midwest, from institutions large and small, to meet, talk, and network in a welcoming and professional environment.

This year’s conference will offer two extraordinary plenary talks.  The 2017 Distinguished Lecture will be given by Dr. Fred Smith. And a second special plenary address will be given by Dr. Richard Lee.

You must register for the conference before you can submit an abstract.  If your abstract is not accepted, you can ask for a refund of your registration fee.

This year, the registration rates for CSAS members have been reduced.  So if you are a member of AAA, join CSAS for $20 ($10 for students) and you’ll save on registration!

Registration rates:  Early online registration rates are:  CSAS regular member: $50; CSAS student member: $20; regular non-member: $90; student non-member: $40. (After March 6th the on-site registration rates are:  CSAS regular member: $70; CSAS student member: $30; regular non-member: $110; student non-member: $50.)

Join CSAS and save!  As you register, if you’re already an AAA member, you can join CSAS for $20–students join for free!–and then pay the lower member registration rate.

To register:  Go to this AAA webpage.  Click on “register” under Central States Anthropological Society (CSAS) 2017 Spring Conference. AAA members should login to their account; non-AAA members should create a temporary account. Once you complete item 3, “Select Meeting,” the registration categories will appear.

All meeting participants are welcome to attend the business lunch; the subsidized ticket price is $8.

The deadline for submitting an abstract has passed.

If you’re interested in sharing a room in the Embassy Suites conference hotel or in sharing a ride to Lincoln, email Alice Kehoe  (akehoe@uwm.edu), who will try to match people up.
