The Anthropology Graduate Student Society (AGSS) is open to all Anthropology graduate students as well as undergraduate students and community members with an interest in anthropology. AGSS promotes scholastic excellence, critical thinking, and a positive educational and social environment for both graduate and undergraduate students.
The goals of the organization include fostering community among anthropology students and faculty, providing students with academic opportunities to learn more about anthropology, and offering opportunities to gain experience in anthropological writing, analysis and publication.
The organization coordinates social events, hosts speakers, and publishes an annual journal. AGSS is proud to publish one of the country’s only student-run, peer-reviewed academic journals in anthropology.
AGSS will be taking abstracts for the ninth volume of Furthering Perspectives: Anthropological Views of the World. In an effort to cut down on costs while increasing impact, Furthering Perspectives will be published exclusively online.
Abstract deadline is Ongoing.
The deadline for the full paper is TBD.
Please submit to AnthroGrad.Group@gmail.com
The persistent efforts of many and support from even more produced a quality piece of work. Volumes 1-8 are available online at the Mountain Scholar repository.
