You must provide the answers to three questions about your proposed conference or workshop. Applicants are advised to read the questions and instructions carefully as they develop their answers.
Question 1: What is the rationale for the conference or workshop, and what are your aims and objectives in holding the event? Address the current status of research on the topic and theme, the particular need for a conference or workshop at this time and with these participants, and the potential contribution of the event to anthropology.

It is important to make the strongest possible case for holding the proposed conference or workshop at this particular time.
- Conference applications: Specify your purpose in holding the conference. For example, is it primarily intended to bring together scholars who would not normally have the opportunity to meet? Is it an annual or periodic conference designed primarily to provide a forum to discuss new research on relevant topics? Is it a conference to explore new research on specific and well-defined topical issues? Please justify your aims
