Anthropology has a great deal to offer in the research and policy regarding climate change. As we are getting into 2014, discussion of climate change is gaining momentum in the public sphere and, at AAA, the Global Climate Change Task Force (GCCTF) is preparing its final report.
Anthropology News invites proposals for an April thematic series exploring climate change from anthropological perspectives. Topics may include but are not limited to explorations of present and past community approaches, vulnerability, resilience and adaptation. Proposals focused on emerging research as well as policy developments are also most welcome.
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:
February 10 EXTENDED TO: February 14
Selected authors will be notified of their status in late February. Full articles will be due March 15, 2014 and will be published at anthropology-news.org in April.
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:
(2) Email a 300-word abstract and 50–100-word biosketch to AN Managing Editor Amy Goldenberg.
