2022 Submission Open for the Society for Anthropological Sciences Carol R. Ember Book Prize


Submissions are now open for the 2022 SAS 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 2021 or 2022 to be eligible for the 2022 award.  Any submitted book is ineligible for submission to future competitions.  There is no monetary award associated with the prize.


To submit your work, one copy of your book, either in hard copy or electronic format, 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 a copy of your book for our committee’s review.  A committee consisting of the SAS elected senior board members will evaluate all submitted books.  The winner will be announced at the SAS business meeting at the 2022 AAA Annual Meeting, November 9-13. The winner will be notified in advance of the meeting.
