Anthropology Students' Association

The Anthropology Students' Association @ York University is a committed collective for anthropology students to plan, contribute and participate in community initiatives on and off campus.

We're working towards planning seminars, workshops, social events and much more, tailored to the love and learning of anthropology! We are working closely with the Department of Anthropology to ensure that your voice as a student of anthropology at York is heard when decisions pertaining to us are being made.

The Department of Anthropology is a valuable resource to the students and the ASA so we encourage that students participate fully in the work of the department and the ASA throughout the school year to enrich your experience and interest in anthropology and anthropology related fields.

This year, the ASA is sponsoring Contingent Horizons: The York University Student Journal of Anthropology. We invite prospective contributors to submit their original, unpublished papers for publication in our inaugural issue. All contributions will be academically reviewed, and selected papers will be published online. What’s more, they will be featured at the Canadian Anthropology Society (CASCA) conference at York University during our launch event.
