AAA/Oxford University Press Award for Teaching

From Our Sponsors
In This Section

Is there an undergraduate anthropology professor that inspired your success? Honor your favorite anthropology teacher by nominating them for the AAA/Oxford University Press Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching of Anthropology. 

Established in 1997 to recognize outstanding anthropology teachers, this award is a prestigious, nomination-only, annual award for educators who have impacted the discipline through outstanding teaching and inspiration to their students. Successful teaching of anthropology is at the core of producing successful anthropologists. Without dedicated anthropology educators, the growth of the discipline would be stifled. Take a moment to recognize the outstanding professor that contributed to your success by nominating your favorite anthropology teacher today.  

The Award-winning educator will receive a $1,000 stipend for travel to and lodging at the AAA Annual Meeting, a crystal apple and recognition from the Association and fellow colleagues.

Guidelines for the Preparation and Submission of AAA Award Nomination Materials

Supporting Materials: The packet should include supporting materials, which should not be expected to stand on their own. We encourage the inclusion of statements by former students or others that have benefited from the educational mentoring of the nominee.

The nomination packet should not exceed 25 pages. Please note that nominees are considered for three years. Those not chosen in the first year will be considered for two more years. If desired, nomination packets can be updated by March 1 each year, or nominations can be withdrawn from consideration
