Membership to CSAS is FREE for Student members of AAA (American Anthropological Association), and $10-20 for non-student AAA members.

The Central States Anthropological Society welcomes scholars from all over the world, studying anywhere in the world.  Our annual conference fosters inter-generational conversation with a strong, welcoming Midwestern atmosphere of equality, camaraderie and mutual growth.  Students enjoy the focused attention and collaborative questions they receive on their research presentations and the opportunity to present alongside some of the big names in anthropology.
