Book Prize

Submissions are now open for the 2019 Society for Anthropological Sciences Book Prize.  This prize, awarded for the first time this year, 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, including edited volumes, are eligible.  Submissions must have a publication date of 2017, 2018, or 2019 to be eligible for the 2019 award.  Any submitted book is ineligible for submission to future competitions.   There is no monetary award associated with the prize.

To submit your work, either one electronic copy or three hard copies 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 electronic or hard copies 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 2019 AAA / CASCA meetings in Vancouver, British Columbia.   The winner will be notified in advance of the meeting.

Send all submissions no later than the deadline of September 30, 2019 to:
