Call for Nominations for ATIG’s Book Prize
The Anthropology of Tourism Interest Group sponsors two separate book prizes: 1) the Nelson Graburn Book Prize for an author’s first book in the anthropology of tourism, 2) a prize for an author’s second or subsequent book.
To be eligible, all books must have been published within the two calendar years prior to the award competition. Please submit the name of the author, the book to be considered, the publisher information to [email protected] and indicate which prize (1st or subsequent publication). Self-nominations are also welcome. Check back here for the 2019 nomination deadline.
