The Stirling Prize is awarded to a previously published work (article or book, in alternate years) that makes an outstanding contribution to any area of psychological anthropology. Unpublished manuscripts, dissertations, and web publications are not eligible. Edited volumes are not eligible for the book prize, but individual chapters may be submitted for the article prize. There are separate rules for nomination of books and articles; please consult the relevant rules below.
Stirling Prize in 2014 for Best Published Book
Books published within the last six years, including ones scheduled for publication later in 2014, are eligible for consideration. Nominations may be made by any current member of the American Anthropological Association (AAA) and the selection committee. Self-nominations may also be made and the author need not be a current member of the AAA. The nominator must arrange to have a copy of the work sent to each of the three members of the selection committee to review, and should include a cover letter outlining the work’s contribution to the field. All materials should be postmarked no later than June 1, 2014, but we advise you to submit the work as early as possible to allow for full consideration of the work.
