BOASgrad Committees

All students are welcome to join any of our committees.  If you would like to help us enrich the graduate student experience in the Department of Anthropology, please contact us at

Journal Editing Committee:  The journal editing committee peer reviews articles submitted to the BOASgrad journal.  The committee is also responsible for controlling the content and layout of the journal, including scope and requirements for submission.

Funding Committee:  The funding committee manages any and all funding received from the GSA, searches for outside sources of funding, provides funding opportunities to students when possible, and makes members aware of applicable outside funding sources.

Professionalism Committee:  The professionalism committee will offer seminars and workshops designed to help students better their writing skills and make themselves competitive in their respective job markets.  The committee will organize opportunities for students to peer review each other's work and to present their work in a conference setting.

Lecture Committee:  The lecture committee is tasked with seeking out and securing lecturers that will be of interest to anthropology graduate students.  This will include assisting in the orchestration of the Anthropology Department's ongoing series of Brownbag Lectures, as well as one or two larger public lectures per academic year.
