Eligibility: The Anthony Leeds Prize is awarded annually by the Critical Urban Anthropology Association (CUAA), formerly SUNTA, to an outstanding book in urban anthropology published in 2022. The prize is named in honor of the late Anthony Leeds, a distinguished pioneer in the field. The goal of the Leeds Prize is to showcase a monograph that advances methodologically and theoretically innovative research in urban and globalized communities.
Textbooks and anthologies are not eligible. The prize will be awarded at the CUAA business meeting at the annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association. The winner must be willing to have their prize acceptance remarks published in City and Society, the CUAA journal. A letter of nomination (from an author, colleague, or publisher) is only required for those authors whose Ph.D. is in a discipline outside of anthropology; the letter must specify the relevance of the book to urban anthropology.
