Duke University Press at the 2014 American Anthropological Association Annual Meeting

boothWe had a great time attending the American Anthropological Association’s Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. this past weekend! It is always a pleasure to participate in the hustle and bustle of a busy meeting, and to take the opportunity to mingle with our authors.



At this meeting we were pleased to announce that Gilberto Rosas’ Barrio Libre (2012) won the 2014 ALLA Book Award from the Association for Latina and Latino Anthropologists Section of the AAA.

Anne Allison’s Precarious Japan (2013) also received an honorable mention for the 2014 AES Senior Book Prize from the American Ethnological Society.
