The School for Advanced Research is currently taking nominations for the 2019 J.I. Staley Prize 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.

Past winners include Dr. Paul Farmer, Sally Engle Merry, Joao Biehl, S. Lochlann Jain, and Jason De Leon.

The J. I. Staley Prize carries a cash award of $7,500.
