Informal Session: New Voices in Pacific Anthropology (!)
Friday, February 2, 9:00 a.m.–5:30 p.m., Versailles B
This informal session is designed as a roundtable for Ph.D. candidates who are back from their dissertation field work to discuss their research and field experi- ence. Our goal is to create a forum in which junior scholars can discuss emerging issues and their own ex- periences in a supportive environment with more senior scholars on hand to offer mentoring and suggestions for additional directions their projects might take. Participants will give informal talks which will be followed by discussion of their issues in the best tradition of the ASAO 'informal session' format."
Those who have expressed interest so far include: Patrick Nason, Makiko Nishitani, Veronica Miranda and Lei Wenn, Rachel Hicks, Wendy Magea, David Troolin, Michelle Rooney, Matt Robinson, Daniel Hernandez, and Mark Love.
