AnthroGroup of UNL

You may be wondering how you can get involved with AnthroGroup beyond attending the meetings and the fun activities. There are, in fact, a number of ways you can get the most out of the group, so browse some of your options below and suit yourself.

Nebraska Anthropologist

The Nebraska Anthropologist is a peer-reviewed publication of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln AnthroGroup. It serves to disseminate student research in the subfields of anthropology.

The Nebraska Anthropologist welcomes original contributions in anthropology and related fields. Manuscripts submitted for consideration should closely follow the style of American Antiquity. For detailed information about submissions, please contact the editor. Submissions or questions may be mailed to:

Editor, The Nebraska Anthropologist
Department of Anthropology and Geography
810 Oldfather Hall
P.O. Box 880368
Lincoln, NE 68588-0368

The 2008 issue of the Nebraska Anthropologist has now been published, and is available for $10 in Oldfather 835 or 810. For those interested in obtaining a copy of last year's Nebraska Anthropologist, they are also available for $10 from Erin Dempsey in room 835 of Oldfather Hall.

Nebraska Academy of Sciences (NAS) Conference

Each year, AnthroGroup organizes and schedules the anthropology section of the NAS conference. Research presented here is elegable for cash prizes, and is often published in the Nebraska Anthropologist. This event is open to the public for a nominal fee, and also encompasses a wide variety of scientific work outside of anthropology.

AnthroGroup Annual Conference

AnthroGroup hosts its own conference every year where students are encouraged to share their research with their peers, the department, and the university as a whole. This conference is open to a wide range of topics, including topics in geography, and is open to the public. The conference is held in the spring, so dates, times, and locations will be announced as it draws closer. We hope to see a multitude of people there, whether to present or just to learn, and it's a great way to see what's hot in anthropology at UNL.

Other Opportunities

AnthroGroup is always appreciative of donations, should you care to help. Other opportunities will be forthcoming as the group expands through the years.
