Welcome Back to the ASA 2009/2010 Year of Initiative!

The Anthropology Student’s 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. A special thank you and welcome to our respected department chair, David Lumsden. Thank you for extending your support to the ASA.

We are currently in the process of recruiting members and executives for the ASA 2008/2009 team who would like to volunteer and participate in ASA initiatives . Note that you don’t have to be an anthropology student to join in, you just have to share your great ideas, help out and have fun! This is a great way to meet your fellow students and professors to build your social network of friends and colleagues.

If you are interested in signing up for this years ASA team, please email me prathusa@yorku.ca

Note that we are also in the process of trying to obtain an office space to facilitate our meetings and hold regular office hours. If you have any suggestions for the club, please let us know! We are here as a collective to represent the needs and wants of our students so your voice is vital!

We hope that all you have a wonderful school year with lots of learning and holistic understanding of the world in which we live. We look forward to meeting with all of you through the year.


Prathusa, President
