Greetings, students of Anthropology!

*NEXUS* is seeking submissions for a *SPECIAL ISSUE** on the "Anthropology
of Infectious Disease," *in order to showcase unique work in this topic area
from current and former students in the McMaster University Department of
Anthropology. We also welcome and encourage submissions from non-McMaster
This topic has been a particular area of interest for many former & current
McMaster Anthropology students. We are seeking to highlight your scholarly
works in this topic area, whether or not the work was produced during your
McMaster University course and/or thesis work. Former McMaster students in
undergraduate and graduate courses have successfully compiled their
anthropology of infectious disease and health papers into published volumes
as well as published journal articles. We wish to continue this tradition
with a Special Issue of our department's own peer-reviewed, four-field
Anthropology journal, Nexus! Submissions from non-McMaster students are also
very welcome.

We hope that you will consider submitting any of your Anthropology of
Infectious Disease papers, articles, or other works to our Special Issue. As
with other academic peer-reviewed journals, our double-blind review process
will ensure that your works remain completely confidential until the
publication stage. Procedures for submission, review, and publication
decisions can be found at our NEW website, ** - just click on the "Policies" link
in the left-hand column.

*All submissions must be uploaded ONLINE to the Nexus website, which is now
ready to accept submissions!

Due to demand, the deadline for submissions HAS BEEN EXTENDED to Tuesday,
OCTOBER 12th, 2010.**
Nexus is an open-access, online-only journal with the release of Volume 21
in 2009. All past issues can now be accessed, free-of-charge, in PDF format,
made possible by DigitalCommons powered by Bepress and the libraries of
McMaster University.

Please consider submitting your work to Nexus. Thank you for your
consideration, and please contact us with any questions at **, or visit
**for more information.
