Forwarded message from Dinah Winnick at Anthropology News:

Thanks to the tremendous response that Anthropology News received to  
our anthropology of water CFP, we are featuring the water theme in  
both our January and February 2010 issues. This means that the  
repatriation theme will now appear in our March 2010 issue, with the  
deadline for article proposals extended to November 16, 2009. The CFP  
is included below, and can also be accessed online at www.aaanet.org/ 
issues/anthronews/CFP-Repatriation.cfm.  We would love to feature  
content from as diverse a range of anthropological perspectives as  



Anthropology News Addresses Repatriation: Submit Your 300-Word  
Article Proposal by Nov 16

In recognition of the 20th anniversary of the Native American Graves  
Protection and Repatriation Act (NAGPRA), Anthropology News seeks  
contributions for a thematic issue on repatriation, broadly  
conceived. Since its passage in 1990, NAGPRA has prompted significant  
and compelling conversations on issues such as intellectual property  
rights, identity politics, human rights and professional ethics.  
Beyond NAGPRA, researchers, educators and practitioners in all areas  
of anthropology engage with questions involving repatriation on a  
daily basis, whether tracking the lineage of a museum artifact,  
informing policy on cultural heritage, or facilitating the return of  
refugees following a conflict.

We welcome proposals for In Focus commentaries, Teaching Strategies,  
Field Notes articles, photo essays, news stories and interviews that  
address the repatriation of people, objects and intangible heritage  
from a wide range of angles including (but not limited to):

Visual heritage and intellectual property in a digital age
Illegal artifact excavation and trafficking
Interpreting genetic/cultural affiliation and patrimony
The consultation process and new collaborations
Tribal heritage programs and tribal sovereignty
Displacement/endangerment of people and artifacts through conflict
Refugee resettlement and diasporic cultural communities
Return of economic migrants
Memory, identity and temporality
Global discontinuities in repatriation policy
Practices related to NAGPRA compliance
Human rights and social justice

To participate, email a 300-word abstract and 50-100-word biosketch  
to Anthropology News editor Dinah Winnick (dwinnick at aaanet.org).  
Proposals for photo essays should also include five high resolution  
photographs (tiff or jpg), each with a caption and credit. Selected  
authors will be asked to submit commentaries of 1000-1200 words or  
shorter pieces for other article types.

New proposal submission deadline: November 16, 2009
Early submissions are encouraged.
