The Political Ecology Society (PESO) announces the 2022 Eric Wolf Prize for the best article-length paper. The competition offers a great opportunity as it involves paid registration fees for the Society for Applied Anthropology annual meeting, a feature presentation of the paper at this meeting, and publication in the Journal of Political Ecology!
We seek papers based in substantive field research that make an innovative contribution to political ecology. Clear links to some specific set of political ecology ideas and literature is important. To be eligible for the competition, scholars must be no more than two years past the completion of their Master’s or Ph.D. degree. This includes scholars who have not yet received the Ph.D. and Master’s students. Multiple authored papers are considered as long as the first author meets the above criteria. Be mindful the prize is meant exclusively to support students and newly minted grads. Also, we cannot accept papers that are already under review at a journal.
The deadline for submission is September 5, 2022.
The preferred format for papers is electronic, i.e. Word or PDF. Please contact us, if you need to submit in some other format. Please anonymize your submission and use the style guidelines provided on the Journal of Political Ecology webpage: https://journals.uair.arizona.edu/index.php/JPE/about/submissions
As the winning paper will be published in the Journal of Political Ecology, the prize reviewers may request revisions before the item is published.
Electronic submissions and further queries should be sent to Dr. Elisabeth Moolenaar (email@example.com)
