Call for Proposals: Health and Well-being

With health policy debates in the US ongoing, AN invites proposals for feature articles, commentary, photo essays and other media that shed an anthropological light on health and well-being past and present. We’re seeking engaging stories on topics from global health travel to infectious disease, evolutionary medicine to e/m-health interventions, ancient DNA and diets to mental health today, and more.

Please submit your proposal for our health series by June 1.

Send AN@americananthro.org a proposal that includes:

  1. A 250-word pitch. Can you tell us the main point of your piece in a few sentences?
  2. A 50 word author bio.

Full drafts of selected proposals will be due September 30.

A selection of pieces will publish in the January/February 2018 AN magazine with a wider collection running on the AN website.

We look forward to hearing from you!
