Wolf prize--call for submissions

Announcement for the 2015 Eric Wolf Prize

for the best article-length paper. We seek papers based in substantive

field research that make an innovative contribution to Political Ecology.

their Ph.D. within the three years prior to publication of this

announcement. A cash prize of $500 accompanies the award, which will be

Anthropology (the committee is open to discussing arrangements for award at
an alternative meeting as suited to the winning candidate). The paper will
be published in the Journal of Political Ecology; the prize reviewers may
suggest revisions before the item is published.
