Graduate student paper prize (SAE)

Apologies for cross-posting. Please distribute widely.


The Society for the Anthropology of Europe is calling for submissions for its annual graduate student paper prize competition. Manuscripts must deal with some aspect of Europeanist anthropology and/or Europeanist anthropology’s contribution to the broader field of anthropology. This rule will be interpreted liberally to include papers of a comparative and/or theoretical nature.

Submissions will receive substantial feedback from the review committee; candidates should thus send their most mature work in publishable article format with the ultimate goal of submitting them later for publication. Word limit is 8000, inclusive of abstract, main text, and references. Submissions should not have been previously published in print or online media. The committee will evaluate originality, contribution to the field, and writing style appropriate for a manuscript in preparation for publication in an academic journal.

Students will be notified in October regarding the review committee’s decision. Three to four finalists will be invited to present their work in the SAE-sponsored roundtable “Café Europa” at the 115th AAA Annual Meeting (Nov16-20, Minneapolis, MN). The winner will be announced at the end of the roundtable and will received the SAE Graduate Student Paper Prize, which comes with a $400 award. Interested graduate students are invited to submit their previously unpublished work, along a title page that includes contact details, to Bilge Firat ([email protected]) by August 1, 2016.
