28th Annual Conference
2-4 February 2022
The University of Texas at Austin
The Australian and New Zealand Studies Association of North America invites scholars, graduate students*, professionals, writers, and artists to submit papers and roundtable discussions to our 28th annual conference, which will take place in Austin, Texas.
There is no specific conference theme, but ANZSANA will use the 2022 gathering as an occasion to spotlight the recently formed Australia-United Kingdom-United States (AUKUS) partnership and its implications for international security in a set of panels and/or featured speakers. Papers on AUKUS-related matters will be considered for publication in a special issue of the Journal of Indo-Pacific Affairs (JIPA), a professional journal of the Department of the Air Force and a forum for worldwide dialogue regarding the Indo-Pacific region.
As always, ANZSANA welcomes proposals for papers and panels on any aspect of Australian or New Zealand studies as well as comparative studies involving Australia, New Zealand, and Canada, Mexico, and the United States. We encourage groups of scholars to follow the example described above and use ANZSANA as an opportunity to gather to present their work with an aim towards its collective publication. Since its founding in 1989, ANZSANA has promoted interdisciplinary research and it continues to encourage proposals that bridge traditional divides between disciplines and employ diverse approaches, such as:
• Political Science
• International Relations
• History, Sociology, and Anthropology
• Gender Studies
• Indigenous Studies
• Business and Economics
• Visual and Performing Arts
• Communication and Culture
• Ecology and Environmental Sciences
Please click here to submit an abstract of 250 words prior to 3 December 2021. Panel proposals are also encouraged. Acceptance notifications will issue by 15 December 2021. Non-graduate student participants are strongly encouraged to submit full papers by 15 January 2022. Graduate students are required to submit full papers by that date in order to receive a travel grant and be considered for the John Higley Prize for best graduate student paper.*
Papers should be between 4,000 and 6,500 words, including endnotes, single spaced in Times New Roman 12 point.
*We offer a limited number of $200 travel grants to facilitate graduate student participation as well as remission of their registration fees. Graduate students must indicate their status as such in their proposals to be considered for a grant, and they must submit a full paper by 15 January 2022 to receive a grant. All graduate student papers will be considered for the $500 John Higley Prize for the best paper presented by a graduate student at the conference.
