ANZSANA Annual Conference, Embassy of Australia, Washington D.C.

Typically held at the Embassy of Australia, Washington DC, ANZSANA is a multidisciplinary organization that supports and promotes the study of Australia and New Zealand in North America. We welcome papers on any aspect of Australian or New Zealand studies as well as comparative studies involving Australia, New Zealand, and North America. The program committee invites proposals for individual papers, full panels, presentations, performances, films, roundtables, workshops, conversations, or alternative formats. This year, the conference will be held February 22-24, 2017.

Desired submissions are usually from scholars and students, but also professionals, writers, and artists whose work contribute to the deepening of understanding about Australia and/or New Zealand within North America.

There are a limited number of 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 paper proposals in order to be considered for a grant.

In past years, as part of our support for the expansion of scholarship focused on Australasia, ANZSANA has offered a $500 essay prize for the most incisive and well-developed paper written by a graduate student or early career researcher. Details and the deadline for submissions for the prize can be found on our website,

Paper proposals (as well as proposals for any other format) must include the author’s name and institutional affiliation, a curriculum vitae (CV), the title, and an abstract of no more than 500 words. Panel proposals must include similar information for each of the proposed papers and authors.

Please send all proposals to ANZSANA President Krista Maglen at Documents must be attached as either a Word or PDF document.
