Concept of Emerging Scholars Research Conference
OSEA will announce 2012 conference theme and call for papers in January 2012
Call for Papers for 2011 is now closed
OSEA is now soliciting papers for the 2011 Emerging Scholars Research Conference. OSEA seeks papers from emerging scholars, i.e., persons who are currently writing their master’s thesis or dissertation and have completed substantial fieldwork toward their advanced degree or who have recently completed their degree. This conference is organized to show case this current generation of doctoral and masters level researchers whose work is grounded in ethnographic fieldwork and focused questions related to the greater Yucatán region and/or the Maya. Priority is given to cultural and sociocultural anthropologists. Those with related disciplinary affiliations or degrees but whose research is based in ethnography, in part or in whole, are encouraged to apply. There is no set conference theme or specific issues. The open focus aims to encourage the widest participation among the emergent generation of scholars of Maya/Yucatán. Selection will be based on the merits of each proposal and availability of the written paper for publication in an edited volume. Shared themes and issues will emerge organically and will be used to help determine potential publication projects that are derived from the research conference.
Submission Deadline. Proposals for papers and requests for screening ethnographic film are accepted through April 7, 2011. Assessment of proposals and determination of conference participants are made within two weeks.
