Call for Archaeology Session Proposals

Dear fellow archaeologists,

Are you organizing a session for the upcoming SAA meeting in Chicago about an economic theme? Consider applying for sponsorship from the Society for Economic Anthropology.

The Society for Economic Anthropology (SEA), a section of the American Anthropological Association (AAA) seeks to increase our engagement with archaeologists working on themes related to economic anthropology. We hope that this increased engagement will lead to productive conversations between archaeologists and ethnographers working on economic questions, as well as increase the representation of archaeologists within the SEA. To that end, we endeavor to sponsor a session each year at the annual meeting of the Society for American Archaeology (SAA). All sessions related to themes of economic anthropology are eligible, but we especially welcome sessions that bring in SEA members as participants or discussants; sessions that contribute to or build on themes explored at SEA annual meetings; and sessions that include the work of scholars from under-represented groups. We ask that the chair(s) of the selected sessions acknowledge their SEA sponsorship at the opening and closing of the session and that they invite audience members to find out more about the SEA at http://www.econanthro.org.

The selected session will receive $500, which can be used for the following expenses:

SAA membership fees, conference registration fees, or travel expenses for participants who are

  • Students
  • Contingent, underemployed, or non-academic participants who lack institutional conference support
  • Non-SAA economic anthropologists who are included as participants or discussants

In addition, the SAA will donate one year of AAA/SEA membership fees to one student participant in the session, so that they may more easily engage with the SEA.

Finally, the session will receive special consideration for publication in the Palgrave series Studies in Ancient Economies.

If you are interested in SEA sponsorship for your SAA session, please email jbaron@bhsec.bard.edu by September 2 with a session abstract; a list of presenters/discussants and their topics; an explanation of how your session incorporates the scholarship of under-represented groups, if applicable; and a brief budget for how you plan to spend the $500.

We invite all archaeologists interested in economic anthropology to join the SEA listserv, SEA-L@LIST.KENNESAW.EDU, by emailing our listserv manager Brandon Lundy at blundy@kennesaw.edu. (You don’t have to be an SEA member to join!) Please also consider submitting an article or book review to our journal, Economic Anthropology, for which we put out two calls for papers each year (https://anthrosource.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/23304847).

Please share this call for proposals with anyone you think might be interested.

Schneider Prize deadline extended!

The Harold K. Schneider Prize Competition has a new deadline: June 15, 2021!

The Harold K. Schneider Prize Competition is a student paper competition established by the Society for Economic Anthropology (SEA) to honor its first president and to encourage new scholars in the field of economic anthropology. Harold Schneider, Professor of Anthropology at Indiana University, was known for both his path breaking research and his dedication as a teacher.

Each year, the SEA invites both undergraduate and graduate students to submit papers on any aspect of economic anthropology or economic archaeology. Papers should contain a central thesis or argument, should be neither wholly descriptive nor wholly theoretical but, ideally, both. They should be edited for clarity.

The winners in both the undergraduate and graduate categories will receive a cash prize, a certificate of achievement, and a year’s membership in the SEA. The graduate winner will also be invited to make a presentation at the annual spring meeting of the SEA.
