Call for COHORT 2 Editors for the SEA Podcast Mergers and Acquisitions

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 with a description of your series concept and potential interviewees by July 1, 2022.
