What’s In Your Bag, Anthropologists?

Do you have a field notebook you can’t do without? A set of tools of sentimental value? A camera that has never let you down? Or good luck charms or extra pairs of socks? Diapers for the little one?

The summer fieldwork season is fast approaching, and as you pack up to head off to your field sites, AN wants to know, What’s in your bag? Send the following [email protected]:

  1. A high-resolution photo of the contents of your bag (e.g., The Verge)
  2. A 150–200 word description of what’s in your bag
  3. An author bio no more than 25 words

We will be accepting submissions from May 15 through August 31. Select submissions will undergo a thorough copyedit from the AN assistant editor and they will be published on a rolling basis.
