Anthropology News seeks Op-ed columnists for www.anthropologynews.org starting in 2015. These volunteers are an integral part of shaping the conversation in AN by developing columns that relate to anthropology in its myriad forms. Each columnist will craft an overarching theme for her or his column based on individual expertise and experience, and write for a wide audience of both anthropologists outside the columnist’s specific subfield as well as the anthropology-curious. AN especially encourages columns that address current news and issues.
Columnists write their own essays and will commit to one year of monthly essays. All columns will be published at anthropology-news.org, with select ones appearing later in print AN. Everything on anthropology-news.org is publicly available for four months, and then available to AAA members through AnthroSource. Further details about AN’s publishing cycle are available here.
The term will be January through December 2015. Columns have a flexible word count, between 600 and 1,000 words, and we strongly encourage the use of multimedia content. You will also have the option of publishing additional columns in any given month.
If you are interested in being considered as a columnist and are a current AAA member, email a brief proposal (up to 300 words) of your column theme and summary of your qualifications to AN Managing Editor Amy Goldenberg at firstname.lastname@example.org by
September 12, 2014. Deadline extended to September 16, 2014.
