Teaching Culture: UTP Ethnographies for the Classroom

UTP Higher Education is looking to publish ethnographies that are written with the undergraduate market in mind. Though we are open to entertaining many different topical and geographical studies, these ethnographies should reflect contemporary concerns in anthropology, as well as the needs of instructors at the undergraduate level. Ideally, they will be in the 150-250 page range and written accessibly for students.
