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?
