***DEADLINE EXTENDED: June 10, 2018 (SAE Graduate Paper Prize)****
The Society for the Anthropology of Europe is pleased to announce its 
annual call for submissions for its graduate student paper prize 
competition. Between Brexit and the refugee crisis, Europe is 
undergoing significant transformations, which compel anthropologists and 
other ethnographers to rethink old paradigms and to develop new ones 
that better address current realities of the region. Submitted 
manuscripts must engage with some aspect of the anthropology in/of 
Europe and/or Europeanist anthropology’s contribution to the broader 
field of anthropology, addressing any number of past, present, or future 
challenges that the region is facing today. This rule will be 
interpreted liberally to include papers of a comparative, theoretical, 
and/or empirical nature.
The winning paper will receive a $400 award and will be automatically 
submitted for publication in the journal **/Social Anthropology/*. 
Candidates should therefore send their most mature and original work in 
article format. Word limit is 8,000, inclusive of abstract, main text, 
and references. Manuscripts must be written in English (original or 
translation) and must not have previously appeared in print or online 
media. Limit of one submission per person. The committee will evaluate 
originality, contribution to the field, inclusivity of diverse 
perspectives, and writing style appropriate for a manuscript in 
preparation for publication.
At the time of submission, authors must be graduate students in 
anthropology or related fields in a university anywhere in the world. 
There is no citizenship requirement, and women, gender nonconforming, 
and underrepresented scholars are strongly encouraged to apply. 
Candidates will be notified by early August of the review committee’s 
decision. The winner will be publicly announced at the general business 
meeting of the Society for the Anthropology of Europe, and finalists 
will be invited to present their work at the SAE-sponsored roundtable 
“Café Europa” during the 2018 AAA Annual Meeting in San Jose, CA.
Interested graduate students are invited to submit their previously 
unpublished work, along with a title page that includes contact 
information and affiliation, via email to Prof. Lilith Mahmud 
( by Sunday June 10, 2018, 
with the subject line “SAE Paper Prize Submission.”
