The Society for Economic Anthropology is seeking proposals from prospective COHORT 2 editors for the M&A series over the 2022-23 season. Each guest editor will have the chance to curate a collection on a topic of interest to him/her/them and with relevance to economic anthropology! We welcome creative approaches including (but not limited to) interviews, panel discussions, round tables and multimedia supplements. No experience with podcasts or sound editing is necessary, though admittedly helpful. Several COHORT 1 editors will continue over the next year to mentor COHORT 2 editors!
If you are interested in editing a thematic series for the podcast, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with a description of your series concept and potential interviewees by July 1, 2022.
The deadline for the 2022 Harold K. Schneider Student Prize in Economic Anthropology has been extended to Friday, June 10, 2022.
DEADLINE: June 10, 2022
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 and should be edited for clarity.
The winners in both the undergraduate and graduate categories will each 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.
Further details about the competition can be found on the Schneider Prize web page.
