LingAnthLing Graduate Student Award

Award Information

Graduate students in anthropology who will be presenting a paper at the CASCA meetings are invited to submit their papers for consideration for the CASCA LingAnthLing Award for Student Paper in Linguistic Anthropology ($250).

•    Take an anthropological perspective, with reference to relevant literature

•    Must not exceed 10 pages in length
