Dear Colleagues,

Anthropology News is seeking contributions for an upcoming thematic issue on 
the anthropology student experience to be published in September 2008. We 
welcome the participation of students, educators and practitioners, and we 
encourage you to circulate the following call for proposals among your 
students and colleagues.

Thematic In Focus commentary series will address (1) university-community 
partnerships and interactions and (2) the diverse character of anthropology 
graduate programs. Articles in the first series may address service learning 
programs, local internships and research, or the ethics of "doing 
anthropology at home." Articles in the second series may examine the growth 
of new interdisciplinary programs and initiatives; multi-degree, masters and 
applied programs; limitations or innovations within existing programs; or 
funding concerns. Proposals for comparative pieces on anthropology education 
in the US and other countries and on other topics related to the two central 
themes are also welcome.

Additional Opportunities
AN also encourages proposals related to this general theme for articles in 
other sections of the publication - including Teaching Strategies and Field 
Notes - and for independent (non-series) commentaries and general news 
features. We welcome proposals in non-traditional article formats such as 
photo essays, infographics, op-ed cartoons, interviews and multi-authored 
discussions. Contributors interested in coediting article series or 
submitting a cover photo should also contact the AN editorial office.

To participate in this thematic issue email a 300 word proposal and 50-100 
word author bio to AN Associate Managing Editor Dinah Winnick 
(dwinnick at aaanet.org). Proposals for photo essays should also include five 
high resolution photographs.

Proposal deadline: May 23, 2008. Early submissions are encouraged.

Feel free to email me if you have any questions.

Best regards,
Dinah Winnick
