Most 3000 and 4000 level courses in anthropology and sociology involve or allow for your final paper to be researched and written ethnographically. Your final paper will be the basis of your entry to the Altorki award.
If you are interested in submitting your work to the award, speak to your instructor. They will speak with you about your ideas and over the course of the semester will guide you on how to make your end-of-term paper ethnographic.
You will also receive specific feedback related to your entry with your final paper feedback and grade. You will then have two weeks to address that feedback and submit your entry to the award.
You must approach your instructor and fill out the form well in advance of the end of the spring semester to be eligible to submit and to have sufficient opportunity to be mentored by your instructor.
Ethnographic papers should be between 4,000 - 6,000 words in length including references and bibliography. All manuscripts must be submitted in Chicago Manual Author-Date style in 12 point Times New Roman font and should be sent as a Microsoft Word file.
All papers submitted to the award committee will be eligible to present their work at the annual student conference at the Department of Sociology, Egyptology and Anthropology.
