The weather in Minneapolis may have been a little chilly, but we had a great time meeting people, selling books and journals, and celebrating our authors at the 2016 Annual Meeting of the American Anthropological Association.
Our authors won several awards for their books. Eben Kirksey’s Emergent Ecologies won the Diana Forsythe Prize, awarded by the Society for the Anthropology of Work and the Committee on the Anthropology of Science, Technology and Computing.
John Collins won the Leeds Award in Urban Anthropology, awarded by the Society for Urban, National, and Transnational/Global Anthropology, for his book Revolt of the Saints.
James Ferguson won the Elliott P. Skinner Book Award, by the Association for Africanist Anthropology, for his book Give a Man a Fish.
Aimee Meredith Cox’s Shapeshifters won third place for the Victor Turner Book Prize in Ethnographic Writing, awarded by the Society for Humanistic Anthropology. Gastón R. Gordillo’s Rubble and Liisa H. Malkki’s The Need to Help both received honorable mention for the same prize.
Kelly Ray Knight’s addicted.pregnant.poor received honorable mention for the Society for Medical Anthropology’s Eileen Basker Memorial Prize.
Congratulations to these outstanding authors!
On Friday we enjoyed a wine and cheese reception to celebrate the launch of our series Global Insecurities, edited by Catherine Besteman and Daniel M. Goldstein.
We were glad to see so many of our authors stop by the booth. We snapped several photos:
