Carol R. Ember Book Prize

The Carol R. Ember Book Prize prize recognizes books whose significant theoretical, empirical, or methodological contributions to anthropology embody the mission of the Society for Anthropological Sciences to advance the scientific study of human societies.

Single or multi-authored books, including edited volumes, are eligible. Any submitted book is ineligible for submission to future competitions.   There is no monetary award associated with the prize.

Instructions for submitting books for this prize will be posted on our website, listerv, Facebook, and Twitter in early fall ahead of the American Anthropological Association Annual Meetings.
