Subject: Wolf prize call for papers


Apologies for repetition. Feel free to share and repost.



The Political Ecology Society (PESO) announces the 2020 Eric Wolf Prize for the best article-length paper. The competition offers a great opportunity as it involves a cash prize of US$500 and publication in the Journal of Political Ecology! The award will be presented at the annual meeting of the Society for Applied Anthropology in 2021 (the committee is open to discussing arrangements for the award at an alternative meeting as suited to the winning candidate). [especially given COVID]



We seek papers based in substantive field research that make an innovative contribution to political ecology. Clear links to some specific set of political ecology ideas and literature is important.  To be eligible for the competition, scholars must be no more than two years past the Ph.D.  Applicants can include scholars who have not yet received the Ph.D., and Master's students.




The deadline for submission is September 22, 2020.




The preferred format for papers is electronic, i.e. Word or PDF. Please contact us, if you need to submit in some other format.


Please use the style guidelines provided on the Journal of Political Ecology webpage: https://journals.uair.arizona.edu/index.php/JPE



As the winning paper will be published in the Journal of Political Ecology; the prize reviewers may request revisions before the item is published.




Electronic submissions and further queries should be sent to Dr. Elisabeth Moolenaar (emoolenaar@regis.edu)
