The umbrella organization for NZ-OZ Studies is the Western Social Science Association. The WSSA is a house with many rooms: it has sections devoted to disciplines (Anthropology, History, Political Science, and so on) and other sections devoted to topics or studies (Arid Land Studies, Canadian Studies, Women's Studies, and others), with cross listing of sessions between sections. The annual meeting of the WSSA is a major, international conference that convenes in late April in a western American city. Its content extends beyond the traditionally social scientific disciplines, involving scholars of the arts, humanities, sciences, and applied fields. This is an exceedingly collegial and congenial meeting.
