The Society for Urban, National and Transnational/Global Anthropology is pleased to announce its graduate paper prize competition. We are seeking nominations — by faculty — of student papers that address SUNTA’s interests, including transnational social processes, impacts of globalization, refugees and immigrants, space and place, and poverty and homelessness. The prize includes a cash award. The winner will be announced at the 2011 AAA meetings in Montreal, Canada.
Papers should be submitted by email to Alaka Wali at firstname.lastname@example.org by 20 September, 2011. Alternative submission arrangements can be made through contacting Alaka Wali at the email above. Authors who are current graduate students or who have graduated within the 2011 calendar year are eligible for the competition, as long as the submission was composed while s/he was a graduate student. Although submissions will be accepted from faculty only (students may not submit papers on their own), faculty need not write in support: a nomination is sufficient — letters of recommendation/justification are welcome but not required. International entries are encouraged. SUNTA membership is not required.
Papers should be no more than 30 double-spaced pages, 12-point font, including bibliography, notes and images/figures. The paper’s formatting (e.g., citations, bibliographies etc.) should be consistent throughout. Send queries to email@example.com.
