C&A invites anthropology graduate and undergraduate students to submit papers for the 2010 Robert M. Netting Award in Culture & Agriculture. The Graduate and Undergraduate winners will receive cash awards of $750 and $250, respectively, and have the opportunity for a direct consultation with the editors of our section’s journal, CAFÉ (Culture, Agriculture, Food and Environment), toward the goal of revising the paper for publication. Submissions should draw on relevant literature from any subfield of Anthropology, and present data from original research related to livelihoods based on crop, livestock, or fishery production and forestry and/or management of agricultural and environmental resources. Papers should be single-authored, limited to a maximum of 7,000 words, including endnotes, appendices, and references, and should follow American Anthropologist format style.
Papers already published or accepted for publication are not eligible. Only one submission per student is allowed. Submitters need not be members of the American Anthropological Association but they must be enrolled students. (Students graduating in the Spring of 2011 are eligible). The new submission deadline is June 15, 2011. The winner will be announced at the C&A Business Meeting at the 2011 AAA meetings in Montreal. Please submit papers electronically to Lisa Markowitz (U Louisville) at email@example.com.
