The SPA is now accepting nominations for the 2013 Boyer Prize for Contributions to Psychoanalytic Anthropology. The Boyer Prize is awarded annually to a book or article—published in the preceding three years (in this case, Jan 2009 to July 2013)—that addresses psychodynamic process in their cultural context. It seeks to encourage and reward work that takes a psychodynamic approach to cultural phenomena, provides an anthropological perspective on the psychodynamically-oriented clinical context, or in some way integrates the theoretical and/or clinical insights of psychoanalysis with the traditional methods or subject matter of anthropology. The prize carries a cash award of $500, which will be presented at the SPA Business Meeting, during the Annual Meeting of the American Anthropological Association in Chicago.
