Anthropology News is seeking Op-Ed Columnists and Contributing Editors for its online edition, beginning September 2011. These volunteers will commit to a one-year term and will be an integral part of shaping AN’s online content and conversation on its new website.
Op-Ed Columnists will commit to one year of monthly op-ed essays to be published as part of AN’s exclusive online content. Columns have a flexible word count, between 600 and 1000 words, with the option of including multimedia content. These essays are written directly by the columnist and the specific topic will depend on each columnist’s expertise and experience. There is great opportunity for creativity and fruitful in-depth discussions about any of the many facets of anthropology.
Online Contributing Editors will be responsible for managing a monthly column that either they write themselves or edit a piece they solicit from an author. AN is seeking contributing editors for the following columns, tentatively titled: Teaching Strategies, Field Notes, Multimedia Matters, Media Notes, Review Roundups. Proposals for additional columns are also welcome. Monthly columns will also be between 600 and 1000 words, with the option of including multimedia content.
If you are interested in being considered as a columnist or a contributing editor for this new endeavor and are a current AAA member, email a brief proposal of your column theme and summary of your qualifications to AN Managing Editor Amy Goldenberg by June 8.
