The Association for Feminist Anthropology is pleased to announce the Michelle Z. Rosaldo Prize, a new honor in our field. The prize will be awarded to a first book that draws on and makes a significant contribution to feminist anthropology. Prizes will be awarded every two years, with the first to be presented at the 2015 American Anthropological Association meetings in Denver.
Michelle Z. Rosaldo was one of the earliest theorists in feminist anthropology. With Louise Lamphere, she was co-editor of Woman, Culture and Society, the 1974 volume that helped launch the field, and in her own scholarly work, Rosaldo charted new directions the field would take in succeeding decades.
Prizes are awarded every two years. The first prize was presented at the 2015 American Anthropological Association meeting in Denver. Please check for details of the next Michelle Rosaldo Book Prize.
