Central States Anthropological Society

91st Annual Meeting, April 10 to 12, 2014

Illinois State University, Normal, Illinois


The 91st Annual Meeting of the Central States Anthropological Society (CSAS) will be held at the Bloomington-Normal Marriott Hotel and Conference Center, adjacent to Illinois State University, from Thursday, April 10 through Saturday, April 12, 2014. Faculty, students, independent scholars, and practitioners are invited to present or hear papers, give poster presentations, and participate in workshops and roundtables in all four fields of anthropology, including applied subdisciplines. This meeting also offers an opportunity for anthropologists from throughout the central states area, from institutions large and small, to meet, talk, and network together in a welcoming professional environment, and through several informal activities (a dance, planetarium presentation, and some ethnographic films).

Submission of abstracts (limited to 250 words) for individually volunteered presentations, organized sessions, and posters is encouraged. The CSAS also encourages student participation in the conference, including the submission of abstracts. Students are also invited to enter their submitted papers in our undergraduate and graduate prize competitions. 

Local contact persons are Jim Stanlaw (; 309-438-7690) and Nobuko Adachi (; 309-438-8036). Jim Stanlaw is also the program chair for the meetings, and is available to discuss any organized symposia that members may wish to propose.
