Submit a Book Announcement

To submit a book announcement or other announcement for the SMA website, please email the press release (with links) and author picture or flyer as attachments to SMA Webmaster Lauren Belong,, or via the SMA Listserv.

SMA welcomes book announcements by all members and book publishers. This is a book announcement, not a book review, therefore the announcement should not be seen as an official recommendation or validation of the scholarship in the book by the SMA membership, board, or staff.

Our format for book announcements is as follows:

Book Title

Book Announcement: SMA Member [author’s name] announces the publication of her/his/their new book [book title].

Book Description: Brief description of the book written by the author that directly relates the book’s content to the interests of the Society for Medical Anthropology.

[Book title] is available for purchase: A short sentence linking to the book publisher, amazon, and any open access options. If the author has a discount code from the publisher or instructions on how to order desk copies for textbooks that information will be included here as well.
