AFA Section Column in Anthropology News

The Association for Feminist Anthropology’s Column in Anthropology News regularly showcases contributions from the AFA membership in the form of essays, interviews, or photo essays from all subfields of anthropology written in an accessible, journalistic style that draw on the author’s scholarly sensibility and expertise as a feminist anthropologist. Pieces may focus on, but certainly be not limited to, interesting research, fieldwork experiences, current events, career advice, or hot topics in the profession. Essays and interviews should have a maximum length of 1,600 words and be accompanied by 1-3 images. Photo essays should have a maximum length of 750 words for the introductory text and be accompanied by 6-8 images.
