Food Security Proposals Due June 19

AN is seeking contributions for a thematic issue on food security to be published in October 2008. As the concept of food security is multifaceted, articles can address a wide variety of issues, including food safety and regulation; the stability, loss and transformation of food traditions; food shortages and international aid; agribusiness and food production; genetic engineering; biofuels and many other topics.

In Focus commentaries will be grouped into series based on the foci of proposals received. Additional proposals on this topic are encouraged for articles in other sections of AN―including Teaching Strategies and Field Notes―and for general news features. We welcome proposals in non-traditional formats such as photo essays, infographics, op-ed cartoons, interviews and multi-authored discussions. Contributors interested in proposing article series or contributing cover photos should also contact the AN Editorial Office.


To participate in this thematic issue email a 300 word proposal and 50-100 word author bio to editor Dinah Winnick. Proposals for photo essays should also include five high resolution photographs, each with a photo caption and credit. Early submissions are encouraged.
Proposal submission deadline: June 19, 2008
