The Society for Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology invites submission of papers for our Fifth Annual Roseberry-Nash Student Paper Contest. The competition honors the work of two distinguished anthropologists, June Nash and the late William Roseberry for their multiple contributions to the anthropological understanding of Latin America. The award will be presented at the next AAA meeting in Washington, DC, December 3-7, 2014.

The prize consists of US $1,000 and direct consultation with the editor of the Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology toward the goal of revising the paper for publication. The paper should draw on relevant anthropological literature and present data from original research in any field of anthropology.
