2015 Anthony Leeds Prize in Urban Anthropology

2015 Anthony Leeds Prize in Urban Anthropology

The Leeds Prize is awarded each year by the Society for
Urban/National/Transnational/Global Anthropology (SUNTA)
for the outstanding book in urban, national and/or transnational
anthropology published in 2014. The prize is named in honor of
the late Anthony Leeds, a distinguished pioneer in urban
anthropology. The prize is awarded to a book that uses
ethnographic data from complex, transnational, urban societies in
methodological innovative ways. The goal of the prize is to
showcase model studies that advance the research agenda of urban
anthropologists. The prize committee is chaired by Robert
Rotenberg and includes Danny Hoffman, winner of the 2012 prize
for "The War Machines (Duke University Press), Daniel
Goldstein, winner of the 2013 prize for "Outlawed" (Duke
University Press) and Mun Young Cho, winner of the 2014 prize
for "The Specter of "The People": Urban Poverty in Northeast
China" (Cornell University Press). This year's deadline for
submission is June 10, 2015.
