New Prizes for Students and Practitioners in Museum Anthropology
The board of the Council for Museum Anthropology has just announced two new developments of interest to the museum anthropology community. They have established a Student Travel Award that will fund student participation in the CMA’s annual meeting (at the AAA meetings). Two $500 awards will be given annually. Learn more on this award here on the Museum Anthropology weblog.
Also newly established is Michael M. Ames Prize for Innovative Museum Anthropology. The Prize will be: “awarded annually to individuals for innovative work in museum anthropology, which is understood to entail outstanding single or multi-authored books, published catalogues, temporary and permanent exhibits, repatriation projects, collaborations with descendant communities, educational or outreach projects, multimedia works, and other endeavours.” Learn more about the prize on the Museum Anthropology weblog here.
It will be exciting to see what projects are recognized with these important new awards.
