> Anthropology News seeks contributions for a thematic issue on  
> anthropologists’ responses to current global economic instability  
> and its repercussions. To participate, email a 300-word abstract and  
> 50-100-word author bio to AN editor Dinah Winnick

> submit commentaries of 1000-1400 words or shorter pieces for other  
> article types (eg, Teaching Strategies, Field Notes articles, photo  
> essays and interviews).
> Proposed articles may address the following questions: How can  
> anthropological perspectives help us understand what is happening in  
> world economies today? What kinds of fieldwork are anthropologists  
> in these areas employing, and what theoretical frameworks do they  
> find useful? How are people—including anthropologists—creatively  
> responding to this global crisis, and finding ways to adapt to  
> emerging economic, social and political climates? Proposals  
> addressing additional topics related to this general theme are  
> welcome.
> To accompany these articles we envision a related Career Development  
> section examining the effects that the economic crisis has had on  
> the field of anthropology, in terms of employment, funding for  
> research and travel, publishing opportunities and education. What  
> might a more versatile and resilient anthropology look like in the  
> future?
