Do you have an idea for organizing a special issue?

Want to organize those papers from the last AAA, GSA, SfAA, AGHE, or other conferences into a special section?

We are accepting any ideas you may have about special issues. If you have an idea or some comments on one of the topics above, please leave it below. This way additional responses can build up into potential collaborations or more refined thoughts.

If you already have the beginnings of an organized group submission, email your idea and any details (proposal, titles, abstracts, number of papers, type of submission, etc.) to journal@anthropologyandgerontology.com.

We plan to put out a CFP by October with a deadline on or around June 1, 2016.

Looking forward to all of your ideas!
