Informal Session: New Voices in Pacific Anthropology
Organizers: Bob Doktor and Alex Golub
This informal session is designed to help introduce new (or newish) participants to the ASAO conference. In this session we will welcome Ph.D. candidates who are back from their dissertation field work to discuss their research and field experience, as well as advanced scholars who are new to ASAO. Undergraduates interested in exploring Pacific anthropology, or pretty much anyone else is welcome as well. Our goal is to create a forum in which newcomers can discuss emerging issues and their own experiences in a supportive environment in order to get some new insights on their work, and to learn about the work of others. Participants will introduce themselves and their interests and then we will do some tok stori or other methods to mix people up and get some discussion going in the best tradition of the ASAO 'informal session' format.""
Last year we had about 20 people who presented, so we are hoping for a good turn out as well. If you are interested in learning more or participating in the session, just send an email to Bob Doktor, at firstname.lastname@example.org and give me a brief (1 paragraph or 1 page) description of yourself and your interests and I'll add you to the list.
