Deadlines are approaching on the following AAA Awards –
Margaret Mead Award
This $1000 award is presented annually to a younger scholar for a particular accomplishment such as a book, film, monograph, or service, which interprets anthropological data and principles in ways that make them meaningful and accessible to a broadly concerned public.
AAA Leadership Fellows
Awarded annually and established to provide a unique opportunity for anthropologists early in their careers to learn about AAA and leadership opportunities and to encourage future leadership in the association. A $500 travel subsidy will be provided to attend the annual meeting.
Anthropology In Public Policy Award (AIPP)
The AAA Committee on Public Policy (CoPP) is pleased to announce the establishment of a biennial award, the AAA Anthropology in Public Policy Award to honor anthropologists whose work has had a significant, positive influence on the course of government decision-making and action. Starting in 2013, this $500 award will be conferred every other year in rotation with the Kimball Award.
The following award nominations are due later in the year; however, early submissions are welcome.
Sponsored by the AAA Committee on Gender Equity in Anthropology and awarded annually, recognizes individuals who have demonstrated the courage to bring to light and investigate practices in anthropology that are potentially discriminatory to women.
David M. Schneider Award
Throughout his life, David Schneider’s work on kinship, culture theory and American culture was provocative and iconoclastic. This $1000 award will be given annually in recognition of work that treats one or more of these topics in a fresh and innovative fashion.
