    The Center for a Public Anthropology is accepting submissions for the California Series in Public Anthropology 2015 international competition, "Stories of Inequality." The center is particularly interested in authors who convey both the problems engendered by inequality as well as ways for addressing it. There is no restriction on how prospective authors should address this topic, however, it must be presented in a way that will draw readers to its themes through the inclusion of powerful stories about real people. The series is directed at the general public as well as college students. Proposals will be reviewed for publication independent of whether the manuscript themselves have been completed. The proposals can describe work the author wishes to undertake in the near future or work that is currently underway. Visit the center's website for more details.
