The University of Texas at Austin
6-8 February, 2019


The year 2019 will be very special for ANZSANA as well as for our host institution, the Clark Center for Australian and New Zealand Studies of the University of Texas at Austin, as both will celebrate their 30th Anniversaries. At a time when the world faces many challenges, it is vital that we build and strengthen existing bridges of cooperation between Australia and New Zealand and the countries of North America. Australia and New Zealand have vibrant economies, societies, and cultures from which much can be learned.

Since its founding in 1989, ANZSANA has promoted interdisciplinary research. As it enters its third decade, genuine engagement across disciplines is needed even more. ANZSANA, therefore, welcomes proposals on any aspect of Australian or New Zealand studies as well as comparative studies involving Australia, New Zealand, and the three countries of North America. It also encourages proposals that bridge traditional divides between disciplines and employ diverse approaches.

ANZSANA seeks submissions from scholars and graduate students as well as from professionals, writers, and artists whose work deepens our understanding of Australia and New Zealand. It offers a limited number of small 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.



Papers can be submitted individually or within a larger panel proposal. Papers must include a title, abstract, three tag words, and the author’s name and institutional affiliation to submit. Titles need to be less than 50 words and abstracts need to be less than 250 words.



Panels must have a title, abstract and three tag words as well as 3 to 4 papers (complete with title, tags, abstract and authors’ names and institutional affiliations) and 1 chair. Titles need to be less than 50 words and abstracts need to be less than 250 words.



Roundtables are designed for expert discussion on a topic, thus participants do not present papers. One chair and three participants are needed to submit a roundtable, along with title, three tags and abstract. Titles need to be less than 50 words and abstracts need to be less than 250 words.

Are you ready?

Deadline for submission of proposals is 26 October 2018

Notices of acceptance will be sent no later than 5 November 2018
