Anthropology News is seeking contributions for a Nov 2008 series on the US presidential election. Potential issues that articles can address include traditional and new media coverage of the election, policy positions, campaign rhetoric, polling and analysis of public opinion data, the role of race and gender in the primary and general elections, or comparisons with previous US or international elections. Reflections on the upcoming transition from the Bush administration to a new administration, or on the challenges and opportunities awaiting the incoming president, are also welcome.
To participate in this series, email a 300 word proposal and 50-100 word author bio to AN editor Dinah Winnick. Proposals for photo essays should also include five high resolution photographs, each with a photo caption and credit. We also welcome contributions in non-traditional formats and articles for other sections of AN. Early submissions are encouraged.
Proposal submission deadline: July 22, 2008
