Prizes!

The winners of the SPA’s annual paper prizes were announced at the AAA meetings in Denver, CO. The Stirling Prize for Best Published Work in Psychological Anthropology went to Kristin Yarris’ Culture, Medicine, and Psychiatry article “‘Pensado mucho’ (‘Thinking too much’): Embodied distress among grandmothers in Nicaraguan transnational families.” Suma Ikeuchi received the Condon Prize for Best Student Essay in Psychological Anthropology for “A case for the fantasy of an audience: Debating Christian selfhood in multicultural Japan.” Look for it in an upcoming issue of Ethos! Finally, P. Steven Sangren was awarded the Boyer Prize for Contributions to Psychoanalytic Anthropology for his article “The Chinese family as instituted fantasy: Or, rescuing kinship imaginaries from the ‘symbolic’” in the Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute.

Congratulations to Kristin, Suma, and Steven!
