Submissions being accepted for AAA's Robert M. Netting Best Student Paper Prize

The graduate and undergraduate winners will receive cash awards of $750 and $250, respectively.

The Culture and Agriculture section of the American Anthropological Association invites anthropology graduate and undergraduate students to submit papers for the 2014 Robert M. Netting Award. The graduate and undergraduate winners will receive cash awards of $750 and $250, respectively, and have the opportunity for a direct consultation with the editors of our section’s journal, CAFÉ (Culture, Agriculture, Food and Environment), toward the goal of revising the paper for publication. Submissions should draw on relevant literature from any subfield of Anthropology, and present data from original research related to livelihoods based on crop, livestock, or fishery production and forestry and/or management of agricultural and environmental resources. Papers should be single-authored, limited to a maximum of 7,000 words, including endnotes, appendices, and references, and should follow American Anthropologist format style.

Papers already published or accepted for publication are not eligible. Only one submission
per student is allowed. Submitters need not be members of the American Anthropological
Association but they must be enrolled students. (Students graduating in the Spring of 2014 are eligible).

The submission deadline is August 31st, 2014.
