The University of Illinois Press is pleased to announce that The Second Generation of African American Pioneers in Anthropology edited by Ira E. Harrison, Deborah Johnson-Simon, and Erica Lorraine Williams has been selected as the first grant recipient from the University of Illinois Press Fund for Anthropology.
This internal fund established in 2017 helps ensure the publication of diverse research in anthropology. The fund builds upon the generosity of Norm Whitten, professor emeritus of anthropology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a pioneer of ethnographic approaches to anthropological research in South America. The Second Generation, a collection of intellectual biographies of fifteen accomplished African American anthropologists from the 1950s and 1960s, exemplifies the spirit of this Fund.
