The Tulane Anthropology Student Association (TASA) is the graduate student organization whose year-long representatives serve as liaisons between the anthropology faculty and student populations. TASA representatives also organize the colloquium series. Colloquia are held at the Middle American Research Institute roughly every other Friday of a given semester and provide a venue for upper level graduate students, faculty members and outside scholars to present and discuss their anthropologically-themed research.
