On July 2, 1964, the Civil Rights Act was enacted in the US. As we approach this 50 year milestone, we have the opportunity to reflect not only on the act’s impact, but also on issues of civil rights and equality both within the United States and in other countries. Anthropology News is pleased to announce a June series on Civil Rights. AN invites proposals that engage with the topic of civil rights, both within and beyond the context of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
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: April 16
Selected authors will be notified of their status in late April. Full articles will be due May 16, 2014 and will be published at anthropology-news.org in June.
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:
