From local programs to international initiatives, acknowledging and promoting cultural heritage is an ever-growing area of activity. However cultural heritage is more complicated than that, and anthropologists are particularly qualified to address the myriad of issues and concerns surrounding it, from the tangible to the intangible in both the past and present. Anthropology News invites proposals for essays exploring cultural heritage in terms of preservation, interpretation, ownership, and more. Essays may look at specific programs, research or work concerning cultural heritage, or take a larger view to discuss issues such as best practices and ethical standards.
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 anthropology-news.org.
Deadline for proposals:
January 10 EXTENDED to January 14
Selected authors will be notified of their status in late January. Full articles will be due February 15, 2014 and will be published at anthropology-news.org in March.
All accepted contributions will be published online at anthropology-news.org 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.
To submit a proposal, either:
