Anthropology News seeks proposals for a July thematic series on science. Potential contributors are invited to explore the relationship that exists between anthropology and science in terms of technology, modernity, methods, theory, practice and more. Authors are welcome to focus on their specific work as well as broader disciplinary discussions. With a rich history of passionate discussions about anthropology and science, this series will focus mainly on future directions.

Guidelines

We welcome proposals from current AAA members for In Focus commentaries, Teaching Strategies articles, Field Notes pieces, photo essays, photo features, news stories, interviews and more. Proposals for photo essays should also include up to five photographs (tiff or jpg), each with a caption and credit. Multimedia submissions are especially encouraged to take full advantage of the online capabilities at 69.63.149.182.

All accepted contributions will be published online at 69.63.149.182 for up to 1,600 words for commentaries, with flexible space for supplemental online artwork and other supporting files. All published contributions will be archived on AnthroSource.

Selected essays published online will be featured in the newly reorganized bimonthly print AN. Selections will be determined based on a combination of reader feedback via online metrics (such as comments, shares, ratings and pingbacks) and editorial discretion.

Selected authors will be notified of their status in May. Full articles will be due June 15, 2013 and will be published at anthropology-news.org in July.

To submit a proposal, either:

(1) Use the online AN Proposal System for your 300-word abstract, brief biosketch, and more at www.aaanet.org/customcf/an/login.cfm; or

(2) Email a 300-word abstract and 50–100-word biosketch to AN Managing Editor Amy Goldenberg

EXTENDED Proposal Deadline: May 10  May 14
