Invitation to submit an Anthropology and Education Guest Blog
Who: Undergrads, Graduate Students, Educators, Cultural Heritage Workers, or Anthropologists—share your work or build your c.v. with a quick publication
What: A 500-850 word blog post describing and critiquing some interesting example of “anthropology” and “education” in the real world. We know that people use anthropology to educate the public about history, cultural diversity, indigenous communities, and world heritage sites—often in exciting and creative ways, and we want to hear about it first-hand! Are you an archaeologist doing public outreach? A K-12 teacher who uses anthropology in your classroom? A participant or visitor at a folklife festival? An employee at a historic house or museum? An anthropology major with plans to visit a living history exhibit at Williamsburg or Plimouth Plantation? We welcome well-written submissions about any kind of anthropological outreach/education in the United States or abroad. For this blog post, tell us about one exciting example of how anthropology is being used—for better or worse—to educate the public about important political issues. Please write for a general audience—no academic jargon. Photographs are welcome, please get signed permission to use them on the anthropology now website.
Where: Submissions will be considered for publication on the “education” section of our website at www.anthronow.com. Check out the website to learn more.
When: Submissions will be reviewed on a rolling basis by editorial staff at Anthropology Now, beginning in the summer of 2012.
How: For questions or to submit an essay for consideration, contact Dr. Zoë Burkholder, Montclair State University at firstname.lastname@example.org
