SfAA Tourism and Heritage Student Paper Competition
The SfAA Tourism and Heritage TIG announces the start of the third annual Student Paper Competition for the 2014 annual meeting in Albuquerque, NM.
The Student papers should entail original research on the themes of “tourism” and/or “heritage” broadly defined, including topics such as heritage, archaeology and tourism, ecotourism, and cultural resource management. Top papers will be selected for inclusion in an organized paper session at the 2014 SfAA Annual Meetings in Albuquerque, and an award will be presented to the best paper in the session. Eligible students must be enrolled in a graduate or undergraduate degree program at the time they submit their paper. Submissions must be original work of publishable quality. The work may be undertaken alone or in collaboration with others, but for papers with one or more co-authors, an enrolled student must be the paper’s first author.
The competition involves a two-step process. Step one involves the solicitation and selection of expanded paper abstracts (of 500 words or less) for the organized session. Abstracts must be submitted by SEPTEMBER 15, 2013 to Melissa Stevens at firstname.lastname@example.org. Students selected for participation in the session will then submit full papers for judging by the December 1, 2013 deadline. The winning paper will receive a cash award of $500 and will be honored at the 2014 SfAA Meetings in Albuquerque.
