Society for Anthropological Sciences Carol R. Ember Book Prize: Call for Submissions 2021


Submissions are now open for the 2021 Society for Anthropological Sciences Carol R. Ember Book Prize.  This prize recognizes books whose significant theoretical, empirical, or methodological contributions to anthropology embody the mission of SAS to advance the scientific study of human societies.

Single or multi-authored books, including edited volumes, are eligible.  Submissions must have a publication date of 2020 or 2021 to be eligible for the 2021 award.  Any submitted book is ineligible for submission to future competitions.   There is no monetary award associated with the prize.

To submit your work, (preferably) one electronic copy and/or three hard copies must be sent to the address below.   No other materials other than the book itself will be considered. Your publisher may be willing to supply electronic or hard copies of your book for our committee’s review.  A committee consisting of the SAS elected senior board members (Drs. Ian Skoggard, Victor de Munck, and Francois Dengah) will evaluate all submitted books.  The winner will be announced at the SAS business meeting during the 2021 AAA meetings in Baltimore, MD.   The winner will be notified in advance of the meeting.

All submissions must be received by the deadline of November 1, 2021:
