The Society for Urban, National and Transnational/Global Anthropology is pleased to announce its undergraduate paper prize competition. We are seeking nominations — by faculty — of student papers that address SUNTA’s interests, including refugees and immigrants, space and place, and poverty and homelessness. The prize includes a $150 award. The winner will be announced at the 2012 AAA Annual Meeting in San Francisco, California.
Papers should be submitted by email to Alaka Wali at firstname.lastname@example.org by September 15th, 2012.
Alternative submission arrangements can be made through contacting Alaka Wali at the email above. Authors who are undergraduates or who have graduated within the 2012 calendar year are eligible for the competition, as long as the submission was composed while s/he was an undergraduate. Although submissions will be accepted from faculty only (students may not submit papers on their own), faculty need not write in support: a nomination is sufficient — letters of recommendation/justification are welcome but not required. International entries are encouraged. SUNTA membership is not required.
Papers should be no more than 30 double-spaced pages, 12-point font, including bibliography, notes and images/figures. Papers should be single-author, not co-authored. The paper’s formatting (e.g., citations, bibliographies etc.) should be consistent throughout. Send queries to Alaka Wali, email@example.com.
