The Council for Museum Anthropology seeks 2016-2017 submissions for its regular column in Anthropology News, the bi-monthly newsletter of the American Anthropological Association!
This column offers a space to publish the newest, most innovative work in our field.
Have a current topic to write about? An in-process project? A conundrum? An exhibition? An innovative teaching approach?
Send your idea, half (500-word), or full (1000-word) piece to Diana E. Marshat.
In order to publish the most current work in our field, CMA news columns have rolling acceptance and will be published online each month, with three to six issues per year selected for print publication.
For the 2016–2017 year, we especially welcome submissions on the following topics:
- current exhibitions (reviews or curatorial perspectives)
- teaching and methods
- difficult heritage/the "interrogative" museum
- museum anthropology and the public
- curatorial conundrums
- student work
Submissions must be received by e-mail in Microsoft Word or other standard text format. Authors may submit up to three images as separate files. Credit or caption text should be submitted as part of the text document. Authors must also provide their name, title, institution, and a short, one- to two-sentence bio to be included with their piece.
Submissions must be no longer than the specified word limit (500 for half pieces, 1000 for full), including title, photo captions, and bio.
