The Society for Urban, National and Transnational/Global Anthropology is pleased to announce its annual graduate student paper prize competition. We are seeking student papers that address SUNTA’s interests, including but not limited to transnational social processes, impacts of globalization and migration, urban life and infrastructure, space and place, and poverty and homelessness. The prize includes a cash award of $250. The winner will be announced on the SUNTA listserv in November and announced again publicly at the next AAA meeting. The prize-winning essay may also be considered for publication in City & Society, subject to the peer review process.
