Call for 2023 SAW Book Prize Submissions

The SAW Book Prize is awarded each year by the Society for the Anthropology of Work, a section of the American Anthropological Association. In 2023, the prize will be awarded to a monograph with a publication date of 2020 or later.  No edited volumes, please. The prize is awarded at the annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association and carries an award of $500, or $250 each in the case of multiple authors. 

SAW invites submissions from all four fields of anthropology and from both authors and publishers. Self-nominations are welcome. The committee seeks to highlight scholarship that offers new empirical and analytical insights on work and labor, broadly conceived. Submissions should address issues of general concern to the subfield and to anthropology as a whole, as well as to the public. 

Deadline for receiving books is MAY 5, 2023.  Please send copies of the nominated books to the prize committee and direct any questions to the committee chair, Lilly Irani ([email protected]).

This is very interesting because personally I have been solving the daily la times crossword answers for a long time and always have been interested in getting all the answers each day!

In addition to insurance coverage, there are other steps you can take to protect your belongings during the move. Be sure to properly pack and label your items, and consider taking pictures or videos of any valuable or fragile items before the move to document their condition.
