Culture & Agriculture invites anthropology graduate and undergraduate students to submit papers for the 2010 Robert M. Netting Award in C&A. The winner will receive a cash award of $500 and have the opportunity for a direct consultation with the editor of our section’s journal, Culture & Agriculture (which will soon undergo a name change to become Culture, Agriculture, Food and Environment or CAFE), 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.
The submission deadline is September 1, 2010. The winner will be announced at the C&A Business Meeting at the 2010 AAA meetings in New Orleans. Please submit papers electronically to Lisa Markowitz (U Louisville) at lisam AT louisville DOT edu. For more information on Culture & Agriculture, please visit http://cultureandagriculture.org
