Become an Op-Ed Columnist or Contributing Editor for Anthropology News

Anthropology News is seeking Op-Ed Columnists and Contributing Editors for its Opinion section on www.anthropology-news.org These volunteers will be an integral part of shaping AN’s online content and conversation on its website by developing columns that relate to anthropology in any of its myriad forms.

Op-Ed Columnists and Contributing Editors will commit to one year of monthly op-ed essays to be published as part of AN’s exclusive online content. Columnists write their essays themselves, and Contributing Editors are responsible for managing their column that either they write themselves or edit a piece they solicit from an author. The specific topic will depend on each AN volunteer’s expertise and experience. There is great opportunity for creativity and fruitful in-depth discussions about any of the many facets of anthropology.

The term will begin in September 2012 and go through August 2013. Columns have a flexible word count, between 600 and 1000 words, and we encourage the use of multimedia content. You will also have the option of publishing additional columns in any given month. All columns will be publicly available at www.anthropology-news.org throughout the publication month, plus the following month. After that, they will be available to AAA members through AnthroSource.

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 Assistant to the Director of Publishing Emilia Guevara at eguevara@aaanet.org by May 15, 2012.
