Call for Nominations - The School for Advanced Research is now accepting nominations for the J.I. Staley Prize

The School for Advanced Research is now accepting nominations for the
$10,000 J.I. Staley Prize.

The School for Advanced Research (SAR) presents the J. I. Staley Prize to a
living author for a book that exemplifies outstanding scholarship and
writing in anthropology. The award recognizes innovative works that go
beyond traditional frontiers and dominant schools of thought in
anthropology and add new dimensions to our understanding of the human
species. It honors books that cross subdisciplinary boundaries within
anthropology and reach out in new and expanded interdisciplinary directions.

The School for Advanced Research, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, was
established in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1907 as a center for the study of
the archaeology and ethnology of the American Southwest. Since 1967, the
scope of the School's activities has embraced a global perspective through
programs to encourage advanced scholarship in anthropology and related
social science disciplines and the humanities, and to facilitate the work
of Native American scholars and artists.

Past Staley Prize awardees include William Hanks, Joseph Masco, and S.
Lochlann Jain.

Deadline for the 2017 Staley Prize Nominations is October 1, 2016
