The deadline for submission of graduate student papers is SEPTEMBER 15, 2012
The Council on Anthropology and Reproduction (CAR), an interest group of the Society for Medical Anthropology, is pleased to announce its 12th annual award competition for the best graduate student paper on anthropology and reproduction. Submissions from all anthropological subdisciplines are encouraged.
Criteria on which the papers will be judged:
• Ethnographic richness based on original fieldwork
• Anthropological methodology
• Linkage of work to literature in anthropology and reproduction
• Effective use of theory and data
• Organization, quality of writing, and coherence of argument
Please remove identifying information on the paper itself. On a separate page, include your name, mailing address, email address, and school affiliation.
Papers should be double-spaced, no more than 9,000 words including references, and references should be formatted in American Anthropologist style.
Papers already published or accepted for publication at time of submission are not eligible.
The papers will be read by a committee of CAR members. The author of the winning paper will receive a cash award of approximately $250. The winner will be announced in both the CAR Newsletter and the Anthropology Newsletter, and an abstract will be published in the CAR Newsletter.
