The AES is pleased to announce the Elsie Clews Parsons Prize for best graduate student essay. The prize, which began in about 1970, is commemorated by a silver medallion made by a Hopi silversmith. The original design of this medallion utilizes a spider symbol common to Hopi pottery design.
AES awards a cash prize of $300 and the winner will be invited to present the paper at the AES annual meeting. Registration fees will be waived and the recipient will be provided $200 to offset the cost of travel. The prize winner will be announced in Anthropology News.
Papers should not exceed 8,000 words (including notes and references) and should follow the style guidelines of AAA: www.aaanet.org/publications/style_guide.pdf
Submission details: Please submit two pdfs: One containing a cover sheet with the author's name, contact information, paper title and acknowledgments and the other containing the paper's title, text, notes, and references but not otherwise identifying the author. Papers will be read in a double-bling process by a committee of AES members. The committee members will be identified when the prize winner is announced.
