CASCA Fellows


At the Annual General Meetings of 2013, 2014, and 2015, the Canadian Anthropology Society recognized a select number of Founding Fellows whose contributions have defined anthropology in Canada. The Founding Fellows come from all regions and both official languages and were selected and offered this honour by the Executive.

Beginning in 2016, the Canadian Anthropology Society has inducted a select number of Fellows of the Canadian Anthropology Society at its annual general meeting. Fellows are longstanding members of the Canadian Anthropology Society who have made notable contributions to CASCA and to anthropology in Canada through any combination of research, practice, teaching/mentoring or service (including community service). A call for nominations is made to the membership each fall and Fellows are selected and offered this honour by the Executive the following year.


The purpose of these Fellows is to recognize the contributions of longstanding CASCA members to the association and to anthropology in Canada. Fellows will be presented to the Association during the AGM each year. Specific nomination criteria include:

  • The nominee has been a member of CASCA for at least 15 years;
  • The nominee is not a Founding Fellow;
  • The nominee is retired or close to retirement and;
  • The nominee has a significant contribution to CASCA and anthropology in Canada.
  • In addition, nominees may be an Emeritus Professor.


Please forward nominations, including a rationale and a short bio of the nominee, to the Ad Hoc committee chaired by Past-President.
