Power, Politics & Institutions

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Sarah E. Wagner


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 an environment where they can experience more formal presentation setting.

This year’s colloquium theme is: Power, Politics & Institutions.  The topic is meant to encompass not only 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 Josh Rivers (, the Colloquium head organizer, who is more than willing to sit down with you and help you tweak your topic.

We are accepting both presentation style and poster submissions from graduate and undergraduate students. Presentations should be 10-15 minutes. Initial abstracts are due March 2nd, 2018. 

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

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.
