Premio Clifford Geertz de Antropología de la religión 2010

The Society for the Anthropology of Religion--a section of the American

Anthropological Association--announces the 2010 juried competition for



The Geertz Prize seeks to encourage excellence in the anthropology of

religion by recognizing an outstanding recent book in the field. The

prize is named in honor of the late Professor Clifford Geertz, in recognition

of his many distinguished contributions to the anthropological study of

religion. In awarding the Prize, the Society hopes to foster innovative

scholarship, the integration of theory with ethnography, and the

connection of the anthropology of religion to the larger world.


Any single-authored or co-authored book focusing on the anthropology of

religion, broadly defined, is eligible for the Prize. Edited volumes,

textbooks, and reference works are not eligible, nor are works in which

religion is a secondary subject. The book's author need not be an

anthropologist by profession, but the work should draw on and respond

to research and theory within the anthropology of religion. Books must

have a publication date of 2008 or later.

The prize will be awarded at the American Anthropological Association

Annual Meeting in November, 2010.
