Dear Contributing Editors,

Anthropology News welcomes proposals for our upcoming (January 2009) 
thematic issue on incarceration. All proposals related to this theme will be 
considered for our In Focus Commentary, Field Notes and other sections. 
Potential topics include, among others:

Prison industries
Prison overcrowding
Torture and interrogation
Immigrant detention
Political imprisonment
Psychiatric confinement
Prison power structures and social networks
Expressions and limits of state authority

We are also particularly interested in receiving Teaching Strategies 
proposals from anthropologists with experience teaching in prison 

To participate in this thematic issue, email a 300 word proposal and 50-100 
word author bio to Anthropology News editor Dinah Winnick by September 25. 
Proposals for photo essays should also include five high resolution 
photographs, each with a photo caption and credit. Selected authors will be 
invited to submit articles of 1000-1400 words (for commentaries) or 400-1000 
words (for other content). See our website for details.

Please spread the word about this opportunity among your colleagues and 

Best regards,
Dinah Winnick
