Description

In 1992 the Society for Applied Anthropology in Canada established the Weaver-Tremblay Award, naming it after Marc-Adélard Tremblay and Sally Weaver, two of Canada’s most respected anthropologists. Both Weaver and Tremblay were instrumental in the founding of CASCA, an initiative prompted by a range of factors, but a central principle was their belief that anthropologists and their professional associations need to examine and address matters of social and political concern. The award was subsequently moved to CASCA’s jurisdiction and has been presented to a series of distinguished colleagues during the past 25 years.

The award is for a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada. Nominations should include a CV, a cover letter from the nominator explaining why the candidate is worthy of the award, and any supporting material the nominator feels is important, including (but not limited to) publications and letters from other academics and/or community organizations. Such letters serve to strengthen the file. We also ask that you attach a separate biography of the nominee, one that could be used on the website if the nominee is presented with the Weaver-Tremblay Award.

The winner is invited to deliver a plenary address at the CASCA annual conference and a medal is awarded; the association covers travel costs at CASCA executive rates. Due to COVID, timing and format of the Weaver-Tremblay talks for 2020 and 2021 winners will remain TBD.
