The Association for Student Anthropologists (ASA) at Cal State LA is proud to announce our second annual student Southern CSU-Wide Conference on April 21, 2018 from 8am to 5pm. The conference will be held in the University Student Union at California State University, Los Angeles. The theme of the conference is Delving Beneath the Surface. We welcome both undergraduate and graduate students from all four fields of anthropology to submit abstracts. We hope to see a large representation from across all 13 Southern CSU campuses.
