The 2008 Harold K. Schneider Student Prize in Economic Anthropology

DEADLINE:  May 30, 2008

The Harold K. Schneider Prize Competition is a student paper competition 
established by the Society for Economic Anthropology to honor its first 
president and to encourage new scholars in the field of economic 
anthropology. Harold Schneider, Professor of Anthropology at Indiana 
University, was known for both his path breaking research and his dedication 
as a teacher. Each year, the Society for Economic Anthropology invites both 
undergraduate and graduate students to submit papers on any aspect of 
economic anthropology or economic archaeology. Papers should contain a 
central thesis or argument, should be neither wholly descriptive nor wholly 
theoretical but, ideally, both and should be edited for clarity.

Manuscripts should be in English only and be no longer than 10,000 words, 
including endnotes and in American Anthropologist style. The winners in both 
the undergraduate and graduate categories will each receive a cash prize, a 
certificate of achievement, a year's membership in the SEA, and the most 
recent volume in the SEA series, "Monographs in Economic Anthropology." They 
will also be invited to make presentations at the annual spring meeting of 
the SEA. The winners' sponsors will receive an SEA volume. All students who 
submit papers will receive a year's membership in the SEA.

Submissions must include both a single hard copy and an electronic copy. The 
electronic submission must be sent as a single file attachment in Microsoft 
Word format. Please do not include your name in any headers or footers, but 
provide all contact addresses (mail and E-mail) on the title page. All 
student submissions must be accompanied by a supporting letter from a 
faculty sponsor. Please indicate whether you are applying in the 
undergraduate or graduate category.

The submission deadline for the 2008 competition is May 30, 2008. Send hard 
copies to Dr. Katherine R. Metzo, Chair, Schneider Prize Committee, 
Department of Sociology and Anthropology, The University of North Carolina 
at Charlotte, 9201 University City Blvd., Charlotte, NC, 28223; and send 
electronic submissions to: kmetzo at uncc.edu.
