Call for Submissions: 2023 Carol R. Ember book prize

Society for Anthropological Sciences Carol R. Ember Book Prize

Submissions are now open for the 2023 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 are eligible, but edited volumes are not eligible. Submissions must have a publication date of 2022 or 2023 to be eligible for the 2023 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 2023 AAA Annual Meeting in Toronto, November 15-19. The winner will be notified in advance of the meeting.

Send all submissions, no later than the deadline of October 16, 2023, to our SAS awards committee:
