The Society for Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology invites submissions for our Third Annual Roseberry-Nash Student Paper Contest. The award, to be presented during AAA meetings in San Francisco, Nov. 2008, consists of US $500.00 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 original research in any field of anthropology.
Contestants must be enrolled in a graduate program in Anthropology at the time of submission, and be student members in the Society for Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology. Papers must be more than 4000 and less than 6000 words long. Papers written in English, French, Portuguese and Spanish are welcome. The paper should be submitted by email, before June 15, to Susan Paulson, Jury Chair of the Roseberry-Nash Award: firstname.lastname@example.org.
