Anthropology News: Call for column proposals

As the US inaugurates a new president, AN will turn an eye toward the rise of populism from a global perspective. We’re seeking proposals for feature articles, notes from the field, commentary, photo essays and other media that address aspects of populism or populist movements. We’re looking for novel and engaging perspectives on the US, France, Austria, the UK, Turkey, Venezuela, and elsewhere. What does an anthropological sensibility bring to the conversation? What is the role of the anthropologist and the value of anthropology in this current social and political moment?

Please submit your proposal for our populism series by February 6.

Send [email protected] a proposal that includes:

A 250-word pitch. Can you tell us the main point of your story in a few sentences?
A 50 word author bio.

We’re particularly interested in proposals for photo essays (8–10 high resolution images and a 600 word introductory essay) and other media, including short ethnographic films (max. 5 minutes in length) and fieldwork cartoons.
