The California Series in Public Anthropology encourages professional
scholars from a wide range of professions and fields to address
important public issues in publicly meaningful ways. To reinforce this
effort, the University of California Press in association with the Center
for a Public Anthropology is sponsoring an international competition that
awards a formal, publishing contract for the best book proposal submitted
-- independent of whether the author has completed (or even started) the
proposed manuscript. The Series is open to working with authors as they
wind their way toward completion. The winner will receive, in addition
to a formal book contract from the University of California Press, a five
thousand dollar advance.
If you are interested in learning more about the University of
California Press/Public Anthropology Competition, the book contract, the
five thousand dollar advance and the new deadline, please visit this link
(see below). May we ask you to forward this email on to others you think
might be interested? In the past, we have had a number of exciting
proposals from people who learned about the Competition in this way.
