The Harold K. Schneider Prize Competition is a student paper competition established by the Society for Economic Anthropology (SEA) to honour its first president and to encourage new scholars in the field of economic anthropology. Harold Schneider, Professor of Anthropology at Indiana University, was known for both his path breaking research and his dedication as a teacher. Each year, the SEA invites both undergraduate and graduate students to submit papers on any aspect of economic anthropology. This year’s Honourable Mention was awarded to St Andrews undergraduate student Maritt Eriksson for her essay entitled “What is Money? Currencies as Discourse”, advised by Dr Mette M. High.
