Contributing to anthropologies
One of the main goals of the anthropologies project is to encourage participation from a wide range of people.  This means we seek ideas and submissions from people who are connected with anthropology (and social science) at various levels and in a variety of ways.  While the editors do solicit submissions for each issue, we also highly encourage unsolicited contributions.  If you are interested in participating, please send an email to anthropologiesproject at gmail dot com.  Let us know which issue you have in mind, and provide a brief synopsis of the idea you have in mind for your contribution.  Contributions are accepted based on relevance to topic and writing quality. We reserve the right to deny submissions based on quality of writing and fit with theme/other contributions.  All upcoming themes are listed on the "about" page, here.  If you have suggestions, thoughts, or other ideas that you would like to share with us, don't be shy, send us an email.  We'd love to hear from you.

Submission guidelines
The word limit for submissions is anywhere between 500-1500.  Essays can be written in a more formal academic style, as personal essays, or as opinion pieces.  The style is up to the contributors themselves.  If you want to include links in your submission, put the links in text in the location where you want the link to be, like this [link:].  This makes it much easier for the editors to post the essays.  Send all photos as separate attachments in JPEG format.  Also, please send all submissions as an .RTF file, since this works best with the Blogger platform that we use.  Lastly, we use a modified version of the AAA style guide for all references.  The only change is with the formatting of the author and date.  Here's an example:

Asad, Talal. 1993. Genealogies of religion: Discipline and reasons of power in Christianity and Islam. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press.

Please email all submissions, questions, ideas, or inquiries to: anthropologiesproject [at] gmail [dot] com
