Responding to Economic Crisis: CFP Deadline Extended to 6/29

In response to requests we've received, Anthropology News is extending the 
article proposal deadline for our upcoming economic crisis issue to Monday, 
June 29, 9:00 am EST. To participate, email a 300-word abstract and 
50-100-word author bio to AN editor Dinah Winnick (dwinnick at aaanet.org). 
Selected authors will be asked to 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?
