US Election Series: Proposal Deadline Extended

Anthropology News has extended the proposal submission deadline for our upcoming issue on the US presidential election. The new deadline is July 28, 2008. Potential issues that articles can address include:

  • policy positions
  • campaign rhetoric
  • polling and public opinion data analysis
  • traditional and new media election coverage
  • the role of race and gender in the primary and general elections
  • comparisons with previous US or international elections

Reflections on the challenges and opportunities awaiting the incoming president are also welcome. Additionally, AN will consider proposal topics addressing the election and voting more broadly, including voter rights and (dis)enfranchisement, voter fraud, the Electoral College, partisanship and the present relationship between the legislature, executive and judiciary.

To participate in this thematic issue, 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. For additional details see our website.
