Public anthropology/UC Press book competition

BEST BOOK PROPOSAL = CONTRACT + $5,000

The California Series in Public Anthropology encourages professional scholars from a wide range of disciplines to address important public issues in public ways. To reinforce this effort, the University of California Press in association with the Center for a Public Anthropology is sponsoring an international competition that awards a formal, publishing contract for the best book proposal submitted — independent of whether the author has completed (or even started) the proposed manuscript. The Series is open to working with authors as they wind their way toward completion. The winner will receive, in addition to a formal book contract from the University of California Press, a five thousand dollar advance.

In the past, we have had a number of exciting proposals from people who learned about the Competition. Thank you.
