ANTH 630 - Writing and Publishing in Anthropology

Fall or Spring Credits: 3 Staff.

A practical introduction to the whole range of writing and publishing activities engaged in by anthropologists, this course will cover techniques, conventions, and practices regarding grant proposals, book reviews, CVs, articles, abstracts, books, research reports, and job applications. We will consider submission procedures, the editing process, design considerations, distribution and marketing, legal issues, and ethical questions. The intent will be to demystify an aspect of the life of professional anthropologists that students are often left to discover on their own. In addition to substantial readings, there will be a writing assignment every week.
