Call for Nominations for the 2019 MES Book Award

The Middle East Section is now accepting nominations for its biennial book award. This award is given to an anthropological work (single- or multi-authored, but not edited volumes) that speaks to issues in a way that holds relevance beyond our subfield. Criteria may include: innovative approaches, theoretical sophistication, and topical originality.

Books submitted for the 2019 MES book award must have a publication date of 2017 or 2018.

To nominate a work, please send one copy of the book to each of the three committee members listed below.

All submissions must be received by May 1, 2019.
