Anthropology News is looking to the AAA 2021 Annual Meeting themes of TRUTH and RESPONSIBILITY for the November/December issue. What can anthropology tell us about meeting the demands of the present moment—about to whom anthropology has to be accountable, collective care work, truth and reconciliation commissions, and enacting a responsible anthropology? From essays on pedagogy to truth-telling and -making, to activism and advocacy, we invite you to consider how truth and responsibility unfold in anthropology and your anthropological work.

We are interested in pitches that approach truth and responsibility from an engaging perspective, in the form of feature stories or photo essays.

Please send a 250-word pitch that outlines the story and main argument of your piece and a 50-word author bio to [email protected] by July 23, 2021. If proposing a photo essay, include one or two images.

First drafts will be due by August 31 and go through a developmental edit with the AN editor. Final pieces will publish in the November/December print magazine and on the AN website.
