The deadline for proposals for the October 2011 AN has been extended to May 27.
Anthropology News is currently seeking proposals from AAA members for essays on renovation and restoration for the October issue. In this series, contributors are asked to explore how people recreate, renovate and rebuild for a wide range of reasons, from cultural preservation to recovery from human tragedy or natural catastrophe.
To participate, email a 300-word abstract and 50–100-word biosketch to AN Managing Editor Amy Goldenberg. We welcome proposals for print or exclusive online In Focus commentaries, Teaching Strategies articles, Field Notes pieces, photo essays, news stories and interviews. Proposals for photo essays should also include up to five high resolution photographs (tiff or jpg), each with a caption and credit. Multimedia submissions are encouraged for online publication. Final contributions for print AN will be 1,100–1,300 words in length for commentaries and shorter for other contribution types. More flexible word counts are available for exclusive online content published on the new AN website.
Proposals using multi-media content are especially encouraged for our exclusive online content. Questions? Send them to Amy Goldenberg. New deadline for proposals is May 27.
