Anthropology and Environment Society Junior Scholar Award


The Anthropology and Environment Society (AES) of the American Anthropological Association is pleased to announce the 2019 Junior Scholar Award competition. This award is made each year at the American Anthropology Association’s annual meeting.

The award is for early-career scholars who are untenured and/or within five years of having obtained a Ph.D. The purpose of this $250 award is to encourage talented junior scholars to continue working in the domain of anthropology and environment by recognizing their exemplary scholarship. Judging will be based on a refereed journal article published in the last two calendar years (2018-2019), which must be at least in galley or page-proof stage of publication. Co-authored papers are acceptable, but the nominee must be the lead author.

We invite anthropologists and colleagues in other disciplines to nominate candidates for the award based on their knowledge of the field and the work of junior scholars. Authors are also invited to nominate one of their own articles.

Nominated articles should be sent to Dana E. Powell (powellde@appstate.edu)
together with brief memos that nominate the author(s) and identify the key contributions and qualities of the nominated work.  The deadline is October 13, 2019 and the award will be announced at the AAA Annual Meeting.

ExtrACTION and Environment TIG – CALL FOR SESSIONS, PRESENTATIONS, AND POSTERS

Society for Applied Anthropology 80th Annual Meeting

“Cultural Citizenship and Diversity in Complex Societies

The SfAA’s ExtrACTION and Environment topical interest group (TIG) welcomes organized sessions, individual papers, posters, and more* that deal with any aspect of social scientific engagement with resource extraction, environmental politics and activism, and human-environment relationships. We are delighted to include sessions you organize but can also place individually-submitted abstracts into an appropriate session.  We look forward to seeing you!

The theme for the 2020 SfAA meeting is “Cultural Citizenship and Diversity in Complex Societies.” As one of the most interesting—and most imperative—dimensions of contemporary cultural citizenship, we anticipate a stimulating set of presentations and conversations around key environmental themes.

*Beyond the usual conference papers, we welcome community studies, practical workshops, film screenings, poster presentations, theoretical and ethical analyses, poetry, plays and puppet shows, site tours, and more!

HOW TO GET INVOLVED:

OPTION 1: It’s not too late to organize a session! Take ownership of a topic and invite others to participate. You can ask people you know or send out a “call for papers” on the ExtrACTION listserv (extraction-TIG@googlegroups.com) or another relevant list. All you need is a 100-word abstract for the session. Paper authors will supply their own 100-word abstracts.

OPTION 2: Propose an individual presentation of your work. All you need is a 100-word abstract. We’ll form the actual sessions.  For those who wish to submit individual papers, there will be a button to click to indicate the TIG cluster you want to review your submission within the SfAA submission web portal. Just select ExtrACTION and Environment!

All sessions and papers should be submitted through the SfAA’s website, which can be found at https://www.appliedanthro.org/annual-meeting.  The deadline for submissions is October 15.
