Each workshop is limited to five students. The workshops are free and lunch will be provided. Workshops will run from noon-1:30p 1p-2:30p at a restaurant nearby the AAA conference hotels. Participants will be invited to contribute a short write-up about their workshop to the SCA’s Fieldsights blog.
To apply for the workshops, please send a 250-300 word description of your research project and its relation to the workshop theme. In addition, you are encouraged to raise a specific question for the faculty leader and for other workshop participants to discuss. Descriptions will be shared with other workshop participants in advance of the meeting. In addition, your faculty leader may circulate one short piece for discussion. The online application form can be found here.
Preference will be given to SCA Student Members, though non-members are also encouraged to apply. You can join the SCA for just $15 at the AAA website's membership page. Preference will be given to post-field students whose projects clearly articulate with the workshop theme. Students from a faculty member's home institution will not be considered for these workshops.
