Keynote Speaker – Dr. Susan Spencer-Wood


A Call for Papers


Hello UWM Students!


Each year the Anthropology Student Union (ASU) hosts a colloquium allowing students an opportunity to present their work and dip their toes into the waters of conference presentations. We proudly host the conference in Sabin in various rooms, allowing undergraduates to present in a classroom setting and graduate students to present in G90 where they can experience more formal presentation setting.


This year’s colloquium theme is: Identity and Power: Past, Present, and Future.  We hope that this topic is broad enough to encompass the research of all four fields of anthropology as well as other social science and humanity students. However, if you would like to present and are having trouble fitting your work into this theme, feel free to contact Heather Brinkman (, the planner and organizer of this event who is more than willing to sit down with you and help you tweak your topic.


We would love graduates and undergraduates from any discipline to submit an abstract of 200 to 250 words. Please submit your abstract to Heather Brinkman at (Subject of email: Colloquium 2017 abstract type: poster or presentation) by January 1, 2017.  Acceptances will be emailed out by February 1, 2017, with a full paper will be due by February 15, 2017.


We are accepting both presentation style and poster submissions from graduate and undergraduate students. Presentations should be 10-15 minutes. The colloquium will be held March 11, 2017.


We look forward to reading your submissions, working with you this year, and hearing all of the amazing presentations on Identity and Power!

Thank you for your interest. For further information, please see our page on the ASU website at, or visit our Facebook page: Anthropology Student Union at UW-Milwaukee.
