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, CAF (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.*
