Grant Information Every year, CASCA offers small travel grants to doctoral students who are presenting…
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).
This award was created in 2016 to encourage research into language related issues from an anthropological perspective by emerging scholars in linguistics and anthropology in Canada.
• Candidates must be registered full-time in a graduate program in Anthropology at a Canadian university, or have graduated from such a program less than one year ago.
The adjudicating committee look for papers that:
• Explicitly engage with linguistic issues, and clearly demonstrate that engagement in their treatment of the topic
• Take an anthropological perspective, with reference to relevant literature
• Are not merely descriptive and show evidence of original critical analysis.
• Send to the CASCA LingAnthLing member Dr. Christine Jourdan for consideration by our award panel
• Must be received by December 31 of the year of the conference at which the paper is presented
• Must not exceed 10 pages in length
• Can be submitted in either English or French
• Must include an abstract
• Must indicate the university at which the candidate is registered and their current year in the program
The prize-winning paper will be published (following peer review) in the Canadian anthropology journal, Anthropologica.
