28th Annual Conference

1-3 February 2023

University of Southern California

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 at the University of Southern California, located in central Los Angeles.

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 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 and International Relations
• History
• Philosophy
• Anthropology, Geography, and Sociology
• Law
• Gender Studies
• Indigenous Studies

• Literature
• Visual and Performing Arts
• Communication and Culture
• Business and Economics
• Pedagogy
• Ecology and Environmental Sciences
• Agricultural Sciences

Please click here to submit a proposal prior to 4 December 2022. Panel proposals are also encouraged. Acceptance notifications will issue by 12 December 2022. Non-graduate student participants are strongly encouraged to submit full papers by 15 January 2023. 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 2023 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.

Deadline for submission of proposals is 4 December 2022
Notices of acceptance will be sent no later than 12 December 2022
