Society for Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology Book Prize

The Society for Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology (SLACA), the largest section of the American Anthropological Association dedicated to Latin American research, is pleased to announce the establishment of a new book prize to recognize distinguished anthropological work that advances the understanding of the Americas in innovative and potentially transformative ways. Authors whose work engage history at the intersection of anthropology are encouraged to submit their book for consideration. The deadline for submission is August 1, 2014. No books received after that date will be considered for the prize.

To be eligible for consideration a book must be relevant to the field of Latin American and Caribbean anthropology. Works that focus on Latin American migrant and diasporic populations will also be considered. Works should be ethnographies or monographs. Textbooks and anthologies will not be considered, but works of original scholarship by more than one author may be submitted.
