Getting it into print, anthropology edition

Our colleague Lisa Wynn has put up a massive post on academic publishing based on a workshop she did this past week (that is, Lisa was the workshop giver). Especially for anthropologists, it’s a great resource, with many a suggestion for how to get your next great ethnographic of anthropological masterwork into print.

Surf over to Culture Matters to check it out: Academic Publishing Workshop for grad students and more.

There’s discussions of all the traditional subjects (journals, book chapters, books) as well as a consideration of newer forms of reaching the anthropological public.

Trained as a cultural anthropologist at the University of Chicago, I have gone on to do fieldwork in Brazil and the United States. I have written one book, Learning Capoeira: Lessons in Cunning from an Afro-Brazilian Art (Oxford, 2005). I have also co-authored and co-edited several, including, with Dr. Daniel Lende, The Encultured Brain: An Introduction to Neuroanthropology (MIT, 2012), and with Dr. Melissa Fisher, Frontiers of Capital: Ethnographic Reflections on the New Economy (Duke, 2006). My research interests include neuroanthropology, psychological anthropology, sport, dance, human rights, neuroscience, phenomenology, economic anthropology, and just about anything else that catches my attention.
