Western Social Science Association Call for Papers - Due 12/8

Friday, December 04, 2015 2:26 PM | Anonymous
Hello Colleagues:

I hope you've all had a wonderful semester.  On behalf of Alisse Ali-Joseph and myself, we'd like to remind you that deadline for  the Call for Papers for the 2016 Western Social Science Association has been extended to December 8th, 2015.  We hope to see everyone in Reno.

As some of you know, American Indian Studies has always been one of the larger sections, and we'd like it to remain that way this year.   Please encourage other colleagues in your institutions to send in abstracts.

Also, we'd like to remind you to encourage your students to enter the Vine Deloria, Jr. Student Paper Competition (flyer attached).  The winner of the competition receives a $500 prize.  There is no travel award currently for this paper competition, so the student must cover their own travel expenses if they attend the conference.  However, there is no requirement to attend--so students may enter the competition without attending the conference.

One final reminder--this year is the first year that WSSA is requiring participants to submit abstracts through the WSSA web portal, instead of sending them directly to section chairs.  If you've already sent yours directly to either Alisse or myself, we'll do our best to fill in the appropriate information and submit it through the web portal for you.  However, for those of you who still haven't submitted your abstract, please use the portal, and please don't forget about the deadline!  Here's a link to the WSSA's web page for conference information http://www.wssaweb.com/conferences.html

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact one of us!

Best wishes and we can't wait to see everyone!

Karen and Alisse
