The ISEAA Early Career Award will be open to nominees who have defended their dissertations and received Ph.D. degrees within the five year period from August 31, 2010 to September 1, 2015. An award committee of distinguished scholars will select the awardee based on a single peer-reviewed article or chapter, published within five years of the lead author’s receipt of doctorate, that exemplifies excellent application of current archaeological theory to Southeast Asian data.

Selection/Evaluation Criteria: Submitted material will be evaluated and ranked by committee members on factors including originality and quality of research and strengths of application of current archaeological theory to Southeast Asian data. Both mainland (Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Myanmar [Burma], and Malay peninsula) and island (island Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, East Timor, Brunei, and Singapore) are included.

Who Is Eligible to Submit Nominations: Nominations may be made by any professional archaeologist who holds a PhD. Self-nominations of eligible candidates are strongly encouraged.

Nomination/Submission Materials Required: Nomination letters should be submitted by email to the committee chair and include a PDF of the article or chapter, a two-page letter that includes the lead author’s current address and a scholarly description of why the publication is an exemplary application of current archaeological theory to Southeast Asian data. Only one publication per nominee will be accepted.

Ever wonder who is in the field in Southeast Asia? What MA, PhD, or laboratory projects are in the works? Or, what new publications have been released?

ISEAA is starting a Twitter feed on just these topics. The feed is organized by Cyler Conrad (cylerc@unm.edu), a graduate student at the University of New Mexico. Please let him know what you are up to! The feed (here https://twitter.com/iseaarchaeology) will be cross-posted on the ISEAA Facebook page, so you do not have to follow or use Twitter to see the tweets. We will use the hashtag ‪#‎ISEAAtweets and initially will aim to have a tweet every 2 weeks or so.

See our first tweet here (https://www.facebook.com/ISEAArchaeology)!

If you are interested in participating, please send a submission (with or without a photograph), and approximately 140 characters of text to Cyler.
